Chronic Fatigue Message Board

Chronic Fatigue Board Index

I'm really hoping that anyone can throw some light on this?
I had a bad viral infection, and just didn't really recover. It's been diagnosed as chronic fatigue/post viral fatigue. As I understand it this is likely to be caused by the immune system getting overwhelmed and functioning at a very low level. Which makes sense, I was operating at a high level before the virus and wasn't resting, I was probably overloading my body.

So I thought that taking something that helps the immune system would be of benefit. So I've tried echinacea, and more recently a multivitamin specifically designed with key vitamins for the immune system.

But I've reacted badly to both - both have brought on fever, bad aches and pains, headache, just like I am getting a bad cold. I've had to stop taking it after 2-3 days because the side effects get so bad, and the side effects just go once I stop taking the supplement. Thing is in some way I feel it's helping, my energy was good although I was also suffering.

Why is this? Is it boosting the immune system so the immune system is starting to battle all the crap in my system, or is it doing some harm?
Any thoughts please let me now!
