Smile I have Espstein Barr/Chronic Fatigue....

Hi,

I am new to this message board, but wanted to just say that I have had Epstein Barr/Chronic Fatigue now for about 2 yrs. I've had it come and go, but this time, it's for 4 months! I had blood work done in April and the rate or number they gave me (level) was 3.8. I started sleeping even more and just had more blood tests done last week. It's not at a level of 4.5 or 4.7...I'm waiting for them to send me the results, but this is what the doctor told me over the phone. This doctor was a Endocronologist and she said that I really need to see a Rheumatologist. Has anyone seen a Rheumatologist for this? I am like everyone else on here, I sleep non-stop and it really has disrupted my life. The only way I can stay awake most days is to have some kind of stimulant, like a diet pill that hipes you up. I have gained about 30 lbs. in several months from not having any exercise and that makes the depression from this even worse.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much,
Paula

Re: I have Espstein Barr/Chronic Fatigue....

Hi there! I'm seeing a rheumatologist. I think they know about fibromyalgia, and like that diagnosis better than chronic fatigue syndrome.
My rheumatologist has given me a prescription for gabapentin. I don;t care what he calls my illness, as long as I get some relief. The gabapentin has helped me more than anything so far.'So if he wants to call ir fibromyalgia, fine!
Let us know how it goes!
