Hey everyone,
I am a 21 year old female. I have been unwell now for almost a year. Doctors have not yet been able to diagnose my condition, which is very frustrating! My problems began with with a swollen calf in just one of my legs. Along with the swelling came discomfort, I can only describe it as a dull aching pain which felt as though its coming from the bone. Slowly after this happened I began feeling many other symptoms. I am constantly exhausted, hot sweats (which make me light headed), all over aches and pains, pins and needles, dizziness, sore throat (with ulcerated tonsils)...the list goes on! The fatigue is what I could only describe as overwhelming and persistent. I am currently absent from work due to my health problems. No matter how much rest I take I constantly feel unwell. I can sleep and sleep and wake up still tired! I have had various tests taken on my leg, these being x-rays, ultra sounds, MRI scan yet the results are normal. I have also had many blood tests taken which also come back as being normal. The only thing that has proven to be positive is Glandular Fever, which the doctor told me will always show positive after you have had an attack of the illness. The doctors don't believe this is whats causing my symptoms as it is coming up for a year and my symptoms have progressively gotton worse. The doctors wanted to test the swollen leg for any abnormalities before looking in to the other symptoms which I have described above. I have a meeting with my doctor again in a few days, he is going to gather some information regarding CFS for me to take a look at.

I would really like to know what you all think of my symptoms as I am not quite sure if these are infact related to CFS. Any help would be very much appreciated. I am looking for any advice possible.

Thanks for reading!
