I've been diagnosed with ME/CFS within the last 6 months and the trouble is I compare myself to a friend who also has ME, our symptoms can vary ,which then I think well I don't have that or I'm no way as bad as that so it can't be ME!
I have a part time job working in a farm shop, with some lifting also on my feet all the time,so I keep putting it down to my job as to why my body aches and the burning/stabbing Pain in my shoulders is sometimes unbearable . I don't have a problem with sleeping,I could sleep on a bed of nails when a waves of tiredness/fatigue comes over me . I Will have a sleep most days and still want to go to bed by 8.
The other week I had my first "relapse " so the internet suggested. For 3-5 days I had Full on flu like symptoms , terrible back ache etc ....but even still I'm now thinking it was just a virus ! To be honest I don't really know what I'm trying to say or ask. Just keep thinking it's my job for the reason I feel like i do. I had a couple of weeks of from work and I was responsible ok , gone back to work first day back the burning pain is back as well as the aches!!! Am I the only one going mad and in denial !!!! Sorry for ranting on.
