Chronic Fatigue Message Board

Chronic Fatigue Board Index

Hi, I was diagnosed with post viral syndrome 3 years ago, which was then changed to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome after the dr couldn't come up with anything else. I feel that it was probably building up about 2 years before but I pushed through it each time I got sick until I finally collapsed and had a 2 week stay in hospital. Since then I have taken it more seriously.

I have been to various doctors, been given antidepressants, given the label of having major depression - who wouldn't be feeling depressed if their whole life was turned upside down, had to stop working, sell their house! I have tried different diets or more correctly, ways of eating and nutrition, meditation, massage, naturopathy, acupuncture.

I have recently found many sites that have been very insightful and helpful insomuch as making me realise I am not alone and I am not an idiot. They call this disease Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME, which when you research it, is a lot better name than Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be anything in Australia

Contrary to the medical profession's diagnosis, I am not depressed, I am a happy positive person but I have an illness that affects my brain, muscles, joints, immune, nervous and digestive system, and I don't know where take the next step to getting help.

Can anyone let me know if there are any doctors in Australia, preferably in NSW who specialise in this area. I would appreciate any information relevant
