Is it rush of blood to the head or a virus

Hi there, I'm hoping someone might be able to help me. Over the past two weeks I've had really bad body aches all over 'flu-like,' which have now dissappeared leaving me feel fatigued and tired. I could go to work over that period, and was very active, and I intend to go to work tomorrow. It isn't debillitating, but very noticeable. I understand my body might be fighting off a virus of some kind, which could be anything, on the other hand is it true that depression/schizophrenia can bring this on. I haven't been diagnosed with either but I feel I've had symptoms of the like for the past 5 years or so. I can remember that around about a week before 'flu-like' symptoms arrived I began to regain some of my original brain power so to speak, thought patterns, awareness etc. I was also under a lot of pressure at work, stress and anxiety where all too common. Would this be likely to have triggered my body aches and subsequent fatigue. I would appreciate any help, from anyone who familiar with cfs. I'm having my blood screened on wed which should put the virus query to bed, but in the mean time I would really like someone to shine some light on this matter for me.

Re: Is it rush of blood to the head or a virus

When my symptoms of HHV-6 and HHV-7 mononucleosis started, the most noticable changes, in addition to night sweats, strong morning headaches, and body aches, were a type of 'brain fog' and sort of displaced feeling, and the feeling that my short term memory was impaired. This was a different feeling than any other I had experienced as the result of being sick with say, a flu. I think a virus is definitely a possible explanation, among many.

Re: Is it rush of blood to the head or a virus

Guillen Barre, fibromyalgia, mono, and others can cause chronic fatigue. I have fibro, and common symptom was profound CFS, IBS, body-wide flu symptoms, foggy brain, bladder problems, anxiety, on and on. Once I was properly diagnosed and received the correct treatment, my health improved a great deal It's hard when you are going through something like this and the doctors don't have an answer. This can make your mind go a little wonkers. Keep pursuing the course until you have your answer. You might want to check in with a rheumatologist.
