Hi there, a good few years ago now I came down with a horrible illness while on holiday in Turkey, I honestly thought I was at deaths door. Prior to this I had always been healthy and active, rarely in the house! Not long after I recovered and got back home I noticed I was very fatigued, had various enlarged lymph nodes tender to the touch in various parts of my body, often felt sick, chest pains, joint pains and many other symptoms to boot. Went off to the docs and their first worry was lymphoma, so was signed off work for 2 months while they investigated this. Many tests later and it was determined it wasn't likely to be lymphoma but I still had all these symptoms? My doctor then mentioned CFS/M.E to me and that it was a likely culprit..however I've never been formally diagnosed? Right now I'm going through a very bad patch, I'm in horrific pain and feel too tired to get out of bed most days along with struggling to concentrate at work and struggling to string sentances together. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to push for a formal diagnosis? I'm sick to my back teeth of doctors appointments with no real result
