Re: im sooo desperate for advice on post viral fatigue
Are you taking any form of supplements to assist? PVFS can be as debilitating as CFS. I suffered for a year with PVFS / CFS and I still have the after effects now, but I think with a positive attitude and good nutrition and exercise it does help.
I was at rock bottom or at least felt at rock bottom at times, I cried and ached and just felt sometimes I couldn't go on, but after a while it gradually felt a bit better, it took a long time and lots of ginseng and multivitamins, I took glutamine powder and made sure I had a really healthy diet, although at times I wondered if it was actually working.
I don't know what the real answer is.. I was put on medication which seemed to make things worse. I think the passage of time is a great healer, I don't believe that prescription medicine helps alot with this condition.
Its been 18months since I was first diagnosed with it and I would say i'm 90-95% better. I've had to adjust my life, which has been hard being young and a mum and working full time, i've had to make allowances for the days when I do feel really tired and fed up.
