I have been feeling poorly now for about 18 months. I went to the doctor in June 16 as was feeling more tired than I've felt before and generally run down during the previous winter. I've had lots of tests done and was diagnosed coeliac. I've been gluten free since Aug 16 and the doctors said I would feel much better. Well I don't and I'm feeling worse as each week goes by. I saw the GP again the other week and I have a large swollen lymph node in neck which is not tender. He mentioned cfs and I said that I didn't think I had it because the only criteria I meet is the exhaustion. I am seeing him again at the end of this month. Has anyone else been diagnosed with cfs and just suffering exhaustion? I don't have muscle pain or twitches, I do get an achy lower back. I don't get sore throats or lots of headaches. But I am suffering from daily exhaustion which is so out of character for me. I feel like I constantly have the flu. Some days are better than others but I haven't felt 'great' in nearly 2 years. The only other thing to mention is I have low lymphocytes on blood results. I feel so desperate to get my health and life back on track but feel like the docs aren't taking me seriously.
