I am currently going thorugh investigation for CFS. I have had Post Viral Fatigue since October 2016. I did manage to return to work in January but have been off again since March when my symptoms worsened. I think this is something that has been affecting me for years though as I was off work for 3 months over christmas 2015 with Vertigo and the same the Christmas before that. Also, whenever I get sick or catch a bug, that other people seem to bounce back from in a matter of days, I can be off for weeks recovering. I live in Scotland and asked my Dr if I could be referred to Dr Wilkes at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh as I was advised to do this by a local CFS/ME group. My Dr looked into this and said if wasn't possible as all my blood results had come back normal. She has referred me to the Astley Anslie and I am waiting on an appointment to attend the CFS/ME support clinic there. I heard there is a fatigue clinic at the Western General, does anyone know about this and how you get referred to it? I feel like I am floating in no mans land, between Post Viral Fatigue and possible CFS. Its been 8 months since the onset of symptoms this time and I feel no further forward in understanding what is happening to my body. I just wondered how you all got diagnosed and what your experiences were?
