about six weeks ago, i came down with what i though was a cold virus, but it never went away. there is no fever, no coughing, no runny nose, and my appetite is good; instead, just a general malaise, lethargy, and that "i don't feel so good" feeling. i had night sweats the first two weeks. then the achiness started coming in waves: i would feel 75% normal for a while, then wham--back on the couch. i have no energy to do anything. i had two-days about a week ago where i felt somewhat normal and thought, at last, i was on the mend; and then awoke with a terrible headache and the achy lethargy totally back. getting blood tests tomorrow. i've done everything imaginable: detox baths, saunas; steam bath; garlic; gallons of tea, honey, and lemon; mushrooms pills (tauted to boost immunity); chinese elixers; elderberry concotions; probiotics; and every other "natural" hooey remedy imaginable. now the waves of achiness have been replaced by a steady weakness and lethargy and mild sore throat. i can get about, go to a movie, but anything too mildly exerting (an "outing" that involves too much walking)--will leave me achy and drained. i'm 66 yrs old, but very healthy and athletic. i'm supposed to go on a one-week ski vacation in two weeks, and now must cancel to get a refund as i have no confidence that i will get better. i know of no one who has this, and my doc says no one has been coming in with a "6-week and continuing" virus. it's getting me worried, and i'm beginning to feel like this is my life.
