I was diagnosed with severe CFS in 2006. 4years after symptoms began to manifest themselves.
I had a head injury after a fall from a horse in 2002. At the time I was diagnosed with soft tissue damage around the top of my spine.
This was followed by an insect bite 6weeks later whilst on trip USA...this caused a fever and infection in my leg(site of bite) and I was on antibiotics for 6months but I never recovered and went down hill from then on.
In 2010 I had a Mitochondrial Function Test.... It showed very poor mitochondria function
In early 2016 I was diagnosed with Hypopituitarism and specifically Severe Adult Growth Hormone Deficency caused by severe head injury(in 2002).
The Pituitary Specialist that I saw said that it is well known that people who present with CFS symptoms following head injury can have Pituitary Damage due to TBI(Traumatic Brain Injury) and the symptoms can take months or even years to develop.
Would anyone like to share what they think may have triggered their CFS/ME?
