Hi have had "M.E" for 4/5 years. Diagnosed by health professional to have all the necessary symptoms. Symptoms........fatigue/weakness, swollen lymph nodes in throat, heavy head, struggled with noise, couldn't do simple tasks like change a bed, relied on husband for most things, mentally slow, foggy, not bed ridden but struggled with everyday life and stopped all the things I had previously enjoyed. Illness started at the age of 35 and I'm now 40. I decided to pay for a food allergy test even though I showed no signs of stomach, bowel, bloating or allergy issues. Result - highly intolerant to COWS MILK. I have been free of cows milk now for 6 months and for the first time in 5 years I'm back to normal which feels like a miracle as I'd resigned myself to a life a of misery and frustration. My nutritionalist advised she has many people with M.E symptoms which turn out to be a severe food intolerance. I don't want to give any false hope but I just had to share this information as I think there may be other people with the same issue and I wish I had found out sooner but I wasn't going to give up and rely on medical professionals with such an unknown illness I had to explore all avenues myself.
