: If anyone has this similar problem, please address me. I just had my thyroid checked, which doc says is normal(hmmm....) but I am soooo dizzy ALL the time, I have intermittent numbness primarily on my right side, leg mostly. I have IBS symptoms, cold all the time, and the doc gave me paxil, which I am not enthused to take. She says I am just having anxiety attacks! I have been under TREMENDOUS stress this whole 13 months, and now I am sliding downhill. Does this sound like CFS or an undiagnosed thyroid problem? Please help!!!! I just want to cry! Thank you!

Sara, Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you. I am writing to say that I am experiencing the same problem. Mine has been going on for the past 6 months. I have had a MRI, CAT and extensive blood work. The neurologist I went to told me that I was fine. He told me I was experiencing anxiety attacks and that all I needed was medication and a therapist. I am experiencing a lot of the same symptoms as you are, made worse by the fact that my doctor thought I was crazy (I wanted to tell him that he was the cause of my anxiety). I finally found a doctor that listened to me. He ran more tests and found that I had Epstein Bar. I still really don't know what that means, but I know I am not crazy. Hang in there, you are not alone.
