I've been struggling with what I believe to be CFS for many years. Prior to it getting so bad I could no longer work, I had a high pressure job (here in the US) in advertising as a graphic designer. I worked long hours, sometimes around the clock. I wore myself out.
Now, years later, my exhaustion seems to be getting even more severe. Last week my daughter and I went to do my monthly food shopping. After about an hour, I "hit the wall" so hard I almost bounced. I felt as though I was about to pass out, and at the same time had pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back that was almost unbearable. I found a place to sit down, which helped, then my daughter steered us to a healthy restaurant and we had salads (with protein).
I'm taking supplements, eating clean and organic (no grain or processed foods), avoiding caffeine, and resting constantly. Nothing helps. My doc is sympathetic but little help. Has anyone dealt with this sort of thing?
