[QUOTE=Jitterygal]I hope some of you don't mind listing your symptoms. I have been previously diagnosed with anxiety and have been taking Paxil for it, and am doing pretty well. But I was also positive for the Epstein Barr virus. I started out with a cold a year ago in Feb and just never felt like I got over it. I had chest tightness (not panic-like, more like congestion) and a sinus-like headache off and on for months...I also had weakness in the legs and arms. I finally got to feeling better, but now it's happening again, though not nearly as bad as the first time. I guess I am just curious about this disease. Also, what kind of doctor do you go to? I know my GP wouldn't diagnose it!!! Thanks for any help you can give. :) :)[/QUOTE]

Jitterygal,
this is how I feel, I did just post this to another similr thread.

One day im fine and working 40 hours a week the next day I have a flu like nothing I have ever experianced. Basically this flu has lasted two years, well two on 6/24 at 9:45 am. Thats right, I know exactally when I died right down to the minute, a lot of people with CFIDS do. Fatigue is not even close to what I feel, complete exaustion is. Every part of my body is effected. As far as sleep, I dont. I call it half sleep, I never get a deep sleep. When I wake my legs ache in pain, joints and muscles. I feel cold all the time and burning as well yet except for that first week never run a fever, it rarly gets over 97! The sensations are numerous and debilitating. What started as tingling moved to buzzing and is know vibrating. My lowered blood pressure has resulted in 24/7 lightheaded and dizziness. My ears and nose are stuffed and has been since the beginning. My eyes are very screwed up, they dont track right and are light sensetive. My brain feels very foggy, I cant concentrate and forget where I am at, like being in a dream. When the weather is bad all of these symptoms increase and so does my urine output, around 13-14 times a day. I just recently found out this is quite common in CFIDS. Theres more but im tired of complaining about it.

You could very well have CFIDS and it frequently causes anxity. I did take paxil for several months and it really only helped my headaches, I guess.

I guess for a diagnosis of CFIDS you should see a ID Dr. a GP should be able to diagnose it. Many dont like to diagnose it because it is so broad, it is caused by so many things. They are still not certain if CFIDS does not cause a reactivation of herpes viruses or if the herpes viruses cause the CFIDS. They are slow in figuring it out because it is not killing us.

The worst thing about it is that no one has an answer. Just like Merimac said before me, alergies could be the cause. Why is it that some people have allergies and others dont? What is it that trigger a person to get allergies? There is obviosly some sort of weakness or problem that causes an allergy. It is diggin deep just not deep enough.

It is hard to get an answer on this board and there are not many regulars here. I think that is because no one has an answer. I can see you want answers, we all do.
