Post Mono and CFS
Well, since Jan of 2006, I've been searching all over going from doctor to doctor, trying all kinds of remedies, reading tons of books and trying a hand full of medications. I've finally being put through the ringer, my infectious disease doctor told me that my levels for having mono in the past were very high (High Ab for EBV). My wife had Mono in 2005 (around August) I started feeling tired around this time, but didn't put 2 and 2 together. I thought it was just stress. After I finally couldn't lift weights anymore and my neck started really hurting, I saw a doctor.
She checked me for Mono and it came back with nothing. I still dont' know what happened. Did the lab mess up? Did it just not show in the blood? Well... either way, it is what it is and this is me. It sucks. I was so healthy, running every other day, lifting weights, practicing martial arts. I would give anything to have that back.
Has anyone tried any types of meds that help them? I've tried Provigil, Cortef, Armour, AndroGel, and God only knows how many herbs and supplements.
I'm sure I'll get the few questions about the standards (have you checked this) so I'll go ahead and put these down
Yes, I've had....
Tried multiple types of anti-depressants
Checked for Lyme (Twice)
Seen 3 different Endo's
Multiplet blood workups for just about everything under the sun
Mold testing in my home.
I know that I felt better when I relax and took a break from lifting when this started getting bad. I think the stress kicked in because I didn't know what this was and made things worse.
