Re: do i have cfs

Hi, I have just been diagonised with CFS. My doctors have been brilliant and done every possible blood test they could carry out - all of which came back clear. I had a virus 8 weeks ago but have been left really tired, sore arms and sore legs. I really struggle as I have three young kids. Do you have good days and bad days. What really helps me is aromatherapy massage and I take a tonic twice a day. Hope this helps.

Re: do i have cfs

hi, everyday seems to be about the same really allthough i have seen a little improvement this week ive tried to do a bit more this week other than just resting. what has your doctor told you about the timescale of recovery, my doctors have said its more likely to resolve itself within a few months with pacing and rest. Its just so scary not knowing when you will feel you again. did you have a real bad virus? i was so very ill with the virus for a good 4 weeks.

Iím not trying to contradict what you have been told, but I think you need to wait and see.
Iíve only recently been diagnosed and its taken me 4 years of tests to arrive here, its been a long painful and tiresome 4 years, anyhow hopefully youíll pick up soon and forget this awful illness, Iím sure you can imagine how depressed others are after years of feeling this way.
Oh and, nice to see another from Lancashire!
