Re: hello...i am new here and have CFS
Hi everyone, welcome to all the new ones, too,
Chrissy, as you mentioned more of your symptoms, that's how mine started with dizziness, vertigo, dropping (hypoglycemic type of issue), couldn't get to the deep sleep, nor did I feel rested in the morning, felt like I was treading backwards...
When the tests were done for any Infectious diseases, EBV showed as acute infection along with active chronic infections of Mycoplasma Pneumonia, Cytomegolovirus, HHV6, and Candida.
I found out from my doctor these active infections are due to a Compromised Immune System found in CFSIDS. Our immune system normally keep these viruses at bay (dormant) when healthy. However, when there is a problem with the adrenal gland it causes the immune system to not function which in turn causes the viruses to run rampant through our bodies. At the cellular level of the body meaning blood, tissue and joint level including the CNS, starting in the brain.
Here's an FYI: We do not infect other people when these are showing active with in us.
Anyway, too much info is hard to follow, so I'll close for now and wish you all peace and endurance to continue finding the good in this journey, uvm
