Hi there all,
I'm a 23 Year old male, I've been very healthy and well until the past few months.
Back story: At first we thought it was a tooth that was infected, so it was removed. Months later the same symptoms of feverish, and cold like symptoms, tireless and lethargic stood with me for weeks on end. Until last week, doctors did bloods and were unsure what was going on, I was starting to fall behind on looking after myself bed ridden and not telling my family I wasn't keeping up with eating and drinking.... and I ended up in the Emergency department dehydrated and in large amounts of pain.
Over the course of 5 days they could see the issues I was having, but they could see anything wrong with my bloods, until I was finally diagnosed by the Hospital and my GP with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Yes, I have read up online about what is it how it works, but I want to get help from real people on how they deal with it in their own way.
This past week I feel it's been the worst it even has (knowing that I've now got it) I've been having so much back pain, joint pain, cold like symptoms but all over an hour - hour basis.
Since I've just got out of hospital I've done very minor things, so sometimes I won't feel anything until the end of the day. Or I'm woken in the middle of the night to pain. Other times I'm completely fine until the next morning. It seems to be all over that place and I have read it can do that.
Some reason in my mind I'm hoping I don't have it, because the last two days I haven't had much symptoms but I'm sure when I'm about to go and do something really physical I'm going to hit down hard..
So I have a few questions, I'm hoping some people could help me answer... from someone who has this syndrome.
- How do you personally deal with pain management?
- Have you had constant symptoms of Chronic fatigue syndrome since you've been diagnosed?
- Have you all of a sudden got Anxiety from this condition?
- How do you deal with Chronic Fatigue and work? Would you randomly have to go home from work because you can't deal with the symptoms?
- Have you ever overcome Chronic Fatigue syndrome for good?
I'm probably not making sense, sorry in advanced, please don't attack me if so, I'm just trying to look for some sort of hope I can't really think straight right now, I've let this get me down in the dumps... I'm seeing another doctor soon I'm afraid I forgot what the name of the doctor is called. I just feel like giving up sometimes. Regardless. Please let me know of anything else you'd like to comment, I really need to speak to people who have this condition.
