Hello everyone,
I am a 26 year old female and when I was 17 I had a very long bought with mono. I was sick for 6 months. After that I felt so much better. Then when I was 20 I felt very ill with mono like symptoms (you can only get mono once) well anyway it turned out that I was pregnant. My fatigue got so bad that I ended up having to quit my job. I went to the doctor and they told me I was so tired because I was pregnant. Well after I had my 1st daughter the fatigue didn't go away. Then the doctors told me I was just depressed and sleep deprived from my baby. I knew that was not the problem, it was a different kind of tired. My brain seems to be foggy and I hurt, my stomach is awful, my hips hurt, I have heart palpitations, I have tremors in my neck that won't go away, my thighs feel like they are on fire, I have lost 12 lbs in the past 3 months but I eat normal, I feel 2 times last week, well you get the picture.
Anyway, in march of 2004 I had my 2nd daughter, and all the way through that pregnancy I felt great, hardly any fatigue, and even afterward I felt great. Now all of these things are back again.
Is CFIDS a real thing? Or are doctors to lazy to find out what is really wrong? My mother had Multiple Sclerosis and it has alot of the same symptoms that I am having...why shouldn't they test for that...then at least there is some thing they can do to help. I myself am a little sceptical of this , my husband thinks it is a crock. I don't know what to think.
I can't even enjoy going out and doing things with my family. What are my daughters going to think of me? I love my girls more than anything, but I feel like such a awful mom because I have no energy.
I guess I am just looking for some suggestions or words of wisdom.
anything would be great.
Thanks :confused:

Your story is interesting to me...You were sick before you were pregnant, you got pregnant and felt much better, but sometime after the pregnancy you started feeling ill again. You know, there is a physician researching this phenomenon by the name of Dr. Samuel Yue, M.D. He has noticed that several woman with Fibro/CFS report the same findings. Supposidly, he has been able to pinpoint it to a hormone that is present in much higher amounts in pregnant women than non-pregnant women called Relaxin. Dr. Yue claims by supplementing with this hormone, you can reverse nearly all symtpoms of Fibro/CFS. There is an oral formulation of this product available called Vitalaxin that you may want to look into. I cannot tell you if he is on to something or if his theories hold any water, but maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to try it.
