These are my symptoms that have bee going on for at least a couple of years.
Months on end with complete lethargy...all I want to do is lie down, not particularly sleep, just rest. I feel this because I feel drained physically and mentally. May have the odd few days where I seem to be picking up then crash..feel the same again.
Poor concentration...brain fog
Blurry vision on and off
I have fibromyalgia ( 10 years)
Muscle aches but especially joint pains
Acid/bile reflux - always full of wind
Difficulty swallowing sometimes
Difficulty breathing every day comes in bouts..worse for exercise.
I feel slow, in mind and movement, like my battery is about to give up!!
Get confused easily if a lot is going on around me..makes me irritable
Feeling dizzy like near to fainting that passes .
Low mood but docs have never suggested anti depressants
Had three viruses back to back just before doc suggested I had cfs
Had heart checked..ok. I collapsed on the treadmill though.
Normal blood tests including throid - all ok
Am in menopause
Lung function apparently ok ( my biggest surpirse!)
Always 98/99% oxygen levels when its been tested
Blood pressure reasonable.
Chiropractor says I have several back problems ( spinal)
Its this utter feeling in a fog thing, distant, always exhausted especially if I move around too much. I am only slight in build so its not a weight issue.
Sometimes and like out of the blue, I will get sudden bursts where I feel like dong a lot..talk a lot, move around a lot etc...I havent got bipolar!
Every doc I see just seems to think I am an acid reflux case full stop. I cant seem to get through to them how my life has changed so much. I have never been lazy and have brought up 4 children. Dont want HRT treatment and it hasnt been suggested.
I dont know what to do or think next. I keep hitting brick walls.
