Hi,

CFS is not just about being tired. This is a debilitating illness that affects almost every bodily system. Do you also feel fluey? If so, for how long? CFS usually starts with a fluey feeling that lasts 6 to 9 months.

Could you be anemic? Have you had your thyroid checked? Either of these things could certainly cause the tired feeling you are having. I would check these things out first.

All the best.

Re: Feeling drugged

You should first see your GP but dont be discouraged if they dont take you seriously...then you may need to see: a sleep specialist (you could have a sleep disorder), an immunologist, psychiatrist etc...important to have a full battery of blood tests. a big one: have you had your thyroid and iron levels tested? if not, just request that. also, are you on any prescription drugs?
that being said, ive had the blood tests and they revealed nothing...its very frustrating but there are ppl willing to help if you seek them out. I am now about to start light therapy (see my post in depression) ill let u know how it goes

Re: Feeling drugged

I know what you're taking about. You described my symptoms exactly. I'm also feeling dizzy much of the time.

So... Does anybody know what's going on?

Re: Feeling drugged

Do you snore? If so, ask to have a sleep study to look for sleep apnea. It can happen in a person of any weight although it is more common with a person who is either heavy or has a large neck size.

Re: Feeling drugged

Psychoscream:

Do you have adrenal fatigue? How is your doctor treating you? Just curious. I'm having a lot of symptoms of adrenal fatigue---the feeling like I'm walking around in a dream all of the time is horrendous with me.

Re: Feeling drugged

Yeah, I definitely think I've got it. It's been ongoing, but the stresses of the last 5 years sort of "broke the camel's back". That's when I started getting a low pulse, dizziness, feeling like I was in a dream...

I've started using progesterone cream on my arms, twice a day, and I think it's helping. B vitamins are also necessary for the adrenal glands, and I heard that they are necessary to make progesterone cream work. Vitamin C is also helpful.

Something interesting... There was a doctor who was able to maintain patients with Addison's disease on salt alone. This was years ago, before hormone replacement therapy was available. So now I'm putting about 1/8 tsp. salt in each glass of water I drink. It tastes wonderful, actually. They say if it tastes good then you've probably got adrenal fatigue. (Regular water actually makes me feel a little sick.)

I'm also putting a 1:1 mixture of flax and sunflower oil in my food. People with adrenal fatigue need more oil in their diets (except for deep-fried foods). The adrenal glands need oil to make important hormones for the body.

My thyroid also seems to be low. I'm putting a small drop from a special iodine tincture on my arm every day. Iodine deficiency means the thyroid gland can't work right. The extra iodine is definitely helping my pulse and energy level.

EDIT: You can probably tell... My doctor isn't doing anything for me. She is ignoring my symptoms.

Re: Feeling drugged

You know... The book "Adrenal Fatigue", by James L. Wilson, has been really helpful for me. This is what I've been reading lately. Lots of people know about it. It's a good, informative book with lots of helpful info and strategies.

Re: Feeling drugged

Psychoscream,

Your instincts are good. There is a protocol called salt/c in which they are used in combination (salt and vitamin C) up to 15, 16 grams each a day for Lymes and CFS which is now thought to be a symptom of Lymes. I am on it myself. If interested, I'm sure you could find info. as it is being used quit widely.

Re: Feeling drugged

If you're interested in learning about the book you can browse Amazon.com for some reviews, or go to [url]www.adrenalfatigue.org[/url] for some free info.

EDIT: Anti-Social, it's remotely possible that your problem could be too much magnesium in your blood. That can be caused by over-absorption or kidney problems. Have your doctor give you a blood test to check your serum magnesium levels.

I saw a different doctor and told her my symptoms. Well, she actually took me seriously. Monday I get my blood drawn, and the lab is going to check my liver and kidneys, thyroid, my nutritional state, and my serum magnesium levels.

Re: Feeling drugged

All the tests came back normal. I am living in hell, and nobody can find a reason.

Anti Social, I wish you luck. That's about all I can do.
