Re: Sick AGAIN!
i also wonder the same thing. i put on weight much easier myself now, though i cant directly link it with CFS, it could easily just be age. Last few sets of bloodtests i had all came back normal for thyroid, only my white blood cell count is always high. though what you say your doctor said, sounds interesting. i made a post on here regarding my glands though nobody has replied yet. I will ask about this on my next trip to doctors, i would definately say mono/CFS effects something in your neck. i know my lymph nodes are abnormally large and painfull, i think this is connected more with the immune system though, after drinking alchohol it hurts much worse. However thyroid disorders often produce the same symptoms as CFS - fatigue/malaise/etc. i read that sometimes eating wheat and dairy products flares up CFS. If you are drinking soup, i'd suggest making friends with the sofa and leaving the dreadmill for a while!!
I gave in trying to explain why i go to bed at 10 on school nights. Its far better waiting until an exam results day and seeing that you've done better than totally healthy people, who put in 100%, wen you've had to put in 200% just not to fall asleep in class!
