I turn to these forums after a series of unhelpful visits to the doctor. Since about November (it is now April) I have struggled with low energy levels and fatigue. I have been to the doctors numerous times but all blood tests etc show that I am extremely healthy. Before I was sick I exercised atleast 4 times a week, I still eat and drink very well, and I also make sure to sleep as well as possible every night.
Other symptoms- I have recently been diagnosed with IBS, but i'm taking probiotics and those seem to be helping lots. I have had headaches on and off, but only for 2 days have I had bad headaches. I have had stiff neck/neck pain on and off too, and that is beggining to annoy me.
I keep feeling like I am getting better, for example, the last time I went to the doctor was under two weeks ago, after a relapse of sorts. He said he thought it was just a virus stickng around a long time and I should be better in a week. I started to feel better and was feeling really positive etc and then for some reason in the last few days I have started to feel crap again and have spent most of the time in bed.
The fatigue isnt 100% dehabilitating but it is making my life a lot worse than it should be. Unviersity work is nearlly impossible, I've stopped playing football which I love, and my social life is really suffering.
So.. my question to you lovely people...
Is it chronic fatigue syndrome?? I haven't really had any musclar aches or anything, and the fatigue isnt so bad that I can't function. But it has been happening for months, and it seems to relapse as soon as i think im getting better!! what could it be?? It's really making my life suck..
