In this time frame, I start feeling very "flulike", often my wrists throb with pain, and I get this really weird (hard to describe) "heaviness" in my head feeling.
I feel like there's weight in my head- like a magnet almost and I also feel like I'm in a fog.
Does anyone else do this?
CFS/CFIDS maybe the cause for or because of the Adrenal Gland Dysfunction, with all there is a Compromised Immune System that allows previously dormant viruses ie: EBV, CMV. HHV6, the Mycoplasma family like Mycoplasma Pneumonia and others to become chronic active ones. Usually, the immune system keeps these viruses at bay.
Your symptoms sound very much like one of my co-worker's and friend. She has active EBV along with the dx of FMS/or CFS runs a slight temp, brain fog, cognitive thinking problems and bodyaches.
For me, my active virues are CMV, HHV6, Mycoplasma Pneumonia, and Yeast overgrowth, EBV was listed as dormant but chronic (the doctor explained to me that it could activate at anytime along with another type of Pneumonia.) I experienced flulike symptoms, brain fog, cognitive thinking problems, CNS symptoms, joint and muscle pain, IBS, along with a host of others.
I'm the other way re: temp 97.7 and bp 112-114, this was the norm for me. And as I became sicker, each time my temp became lower as low as 96.2 and my bp 80/50-100/50, along with the symptoms in going in major flare-up mode!
With treatment for adrenal dysfunction; boosting the mitochondria; thyroid dysfunction; and the immune system. Along with attacking the viruses, and yeast infection. My symptoms have diminished, now my temp is 98.2 and bp above 120/80. I feel great, tho, still have to beware of over doing it, tho
here's an FYI: I was told most people on earth if they have the Infectious Disease panel shows EBV, most are dormant. Its those, like us, who have either active Mono or have developed CFS/CFIDS. I have also heard that CFS/CFIDS patients have a sliding scale for symptoms and each are different based on the underlying issues. Some maybe dealing with fevers, others extremely low temps, each of us can have varying symptoms depending on where we're effected. uvm
