Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with CFS/ME almost a year ago so I'm still learning how to live with this horrible illness! I was managing to work 25 hours a week before November but then I had surgery to remove an ovarian cyst and I've gone down hill since then, I haven't been able to go back to work as a nursery nurse and I spend 99% of my time laying on my sofa in pain and exhausted.
Has anyone else had CFS/ME and then had it made worse by surgery, trauma, stress or another illness?
Also do other people have good and bad days? Some days i can't get off my sofa and I feel dreadful, I suffer badly with pain in my legs, feet, back and arms. Some days I can manage to get up and go for a short walk or pop to the supermarket! It's so strange how it differs so much from time to time, however when I do have a good day and do something I really pay for it the day or two after 😞
