Re: Question about the diagnosis
My symptoms were like yours, coming and going, until they finally just kicked my butt. But, I agree with Peregrine - different strokes (or symptom presentations) for different folks. One expert said, CFIDS comes in "different flavors."
Get that thyroid checked, though! Could make a world of difference to have that treated even if you still do have CFIDS.
Oh - and BTW - yes, the symptoms you list are classic for CFIDS. For curiosity's sake you could ask for your Epstein Barr levels (all four of them) to be checked, but many docs won't do it because it's not diagnostic of anything. Doesn't give you any information as to how to be treated.
