Hi lovelies I am hhaving a winge!! So fed up. Im still waiting to be diagnosed ive got an appointment with a cfs specialist in January. The last few weeks haven't been so bad but this week ive had a viral infection in my lymph nodes and its knocked me for six. I've been really tired and the brain fog and forgetting words is awful. Words I use every day have escaped me this week! Ive just come home from work because it was so noisy I couldn't concentrate and feel really fatigued. The noise was really getting to me and i felt a bit sick and panicky..is this normal? My dr is no help I ask him if this is part of cfs and he says maybe maybe not! ! Arghhhh. Some one pls help xx

I feel the same frustration. I went for an assessment at the CFS clinic near me yesterday (been waiting for soooo long so it was such a relief to finally see them)! Whilst they were lovely (Occupational Therapist and Psychologist) and they asked lots of questions to get a good idea about my daily struggle, I really didn't feel like there was much they could do for me! They said they couldn't diagnose me themselves because they don't have a medical Dr on their team - they would have to write to my GP with their advice and she would have to diagnose me herself! But apparently most GPs 'ignore the letter from CFS clinics'!! Helpful.
They also said that because I suffer from depression as well, they might not even be able to disgnose me with CFS as a lot of the symptoms could be caused by the depression.
I feel very deflated and kinf od like I've hit a brick wall.
Not much help to you I'm afraid, but at least you know you're not alone! I hope you feel better soon.
But I had this weird virus 2 weeks ago sore throat , nausea like billious , stomach pains and pains in back and shoulder , and felt odd anxious. When I got better found several friends had same symptoms ... Horrid little bug .. Lasted a few days .
Hope you feel better soon ...
And my hubby had a doctor at CFS / m.e clinic so got diagnosed ... Hope yours goes well ...xx
