I wonder if anyone on this forum can help. I've been back and forth to the doc reporting persistent fatigue and other symptoms which relate to CFS for a few years now (dizziness, IBS type symptoms, aching muscles, unrefreshing sleep, can't handle much exercise, having to reduce amount I am doing etc, taking sick days for sheer exhaustion). I have been prescribed medication for anxiety already a while ago, and recently had a load of blood tests. These came back normal so my doc said it must be psychological and told me to read some books on mindfulness, etc.
This has all left me feeling pretty much like I'm hitting yet another brick wall. No doc has ever mentioned looking into CFS. And no doc has commented on the fact that a few years ago I had vital meningitis (even though I feel maybe this could be connected).
I wonder if anyone on here has any views on whether the doc should consider CFS, and whether I can ask for some kind of referral?
Thanks in advance, Lou
