Along with my other symptoms is feeling visually spaced out part of chronic fatigue?

Everyday along with having no energy, tiredness, brain fog and light sensitivity i deal with some weird vision its hard to describe. Kind of feels like im drunk all the time with hazy dimmed vision. Like my brain is having a hard time processing what im looking at.

Ive had blood tests MRIs x rays and according to doctors im healthy but the struggle im dealing with is really hard to cope with everyday lifestyle.

Also i was reading up on gut fermentation syndrome and would make sense on alot of what im going through as my bowels are a big problem to me with symptoms that chop and change.

I am currently on no medication, ive changed my diet to clean eating for over a year now and have cut out gluten and dairy but not much improvement.

My last consultation was with a neurologists who ran a list of tests with nothing that appeared out of the ordinary.

    Dylan,

    It sounds most likely like ME/CFS to me.  That being said, there are things that have helped me..  You mentioned stomach problems.  Getting my stomach problems under control made a huge difference for me.  Be glad to give some advice on that if you would like.

    , Clive mentioned B12.  Getting on B12 shots really helped me.

    Best Wishes.

    CFS is diagnosed by exclusion so further tests will need to be run to rule them out before a positive diagnosis can be confirmed. It seems that lots have tests have been run. I've heard about people who have had "normal" results only to be later diagnosed with something and make a full recovery. I

    Do you have any results that you are happy to paste?

      I have been tested for pretty much everything, and have even had second opinions and have sourced out other doctors.

      Sleep study was fine,

      All blood tests such as hepatitis, hiv, autoimmune diseases, celiac disease, blood sugars ect.

      Seen ear nose and throat specialists a gastrologist a neurologists.

      Naturopaths accupuncturist.

      I haven't been tested for lyme disease but dont have any joint or any pain at all.

      So i have no known condition

    I already wear glasses, but when I went to get new ones, they said my vision wasn't much different.

    Well, I went to get new glasses because my vision was getting fuzzy. When I asked them about it, they said I was getting older...lol

    I have noticed a blurring in my vision for a few years now. Only recently realised it could be another symptom of CFS.

    (I thought their computerized system was faulty.)

    But, I have noticed sometimes it is worse than other times. Just another bizarre symptom...

    The exhaustion, brain fog & light sensitivity are classic CFS symptoms.

    Hi hi Dylan

    I know hat you are you talking about .Some days I feel much the same. So yes I would say it is yes it is yet another joy of CFS/ME.

    Sounds

    Ike you also have irritable bowel syndrome. I have that too.. I am intolerant to gluten/wheat and dairy. Was confirmed with elimination diet. It hasn'tever made any difference to my cfs/me. Helps a bit with the bowel problems. But I still have a lot of discomfort and troubles .

    . I hope you can feel a bit better soon.try to do some relaxation in a darkened room. Reiki is good to help you relax . Take care

    Another thing, have you had your vitamin D checked? Most of the population apparently have low levels, but we are even more at risk and how low levels. So many effects from low vitamin D levels.
