... HI- not a male but yes I have CFS and FM. It is not uncommon according to the specialist at the CFS clinic I go to for people to develop both. Just curious did the area that burned feel cold to the touch? Also I had a bout of high-blood pressure for a little while and it did not change my CFS diagnosis (someone mentioned that would rule out CFS) but I do regularly have a... (18 replies)
... Hi. I have alot of the same symptoms you do. I am male and have been going through Chronic fatigue since February of 2004. It started with a car crash where a volunteer fireman speeding to a call with a blue light on hit a patch of ice and slide into us at about 70 miles per hour. Thank god the car we were in was an old heavy car. Right after that a flu type virus popped up... (18 replies)
... Sorry to hear of your troubles, and glad to hear you've found a good doc. It's interesting that you've developed high blood pressure. Paul Cheney, MD, says that high bp essentially rules out a diagnosis of CFS--people with CFS have low bp. (18 replies)

... Thank you for the response. I did the saliva test and said I was Stage 2 of Adrenal Fatigue. Everything started about 2 years ago when I got a viral infection below my ear going down to my neck. About a week later I started developing a horrible parathesias in my neck, arms and back. Terrible burning. I was in constant pain with this for about 9 months and developed severe... (18 replies)

... Yeah, tell me about it. I worked out for a few days got done have a normal routine. Felt horrible for days. My muscles (DOMS) were driving me nutz. I'm still trying to stretch out my chest and that was a week ago. The Cortef didn't do squat for me. I went up to 30mgs and didn't feel any better. (4 replies)

... avy metal testing this past week. Guess he'll look at that first. I've been kind of hanging around the Addison's forum since I think alot of my problems are from addrenal insufficiency. I am taking 20 mgs of Cortef and it does seem to help alot. Realize now that I'm not going to be able to lift weights for a long time. ... (4 replies)
... I have been recently diagnosed with CFS. I found a wonderful doctor (after wasting years). She called today and said I have Epstein Bar. She also suspects adreanal fatigue - which we did a salava test for - waiting for results. Also is testing for iodine deficiency (urine test...waiting for results). She is starting me two supplements - Transfer Factor, and Beta 1-3... (18 replies)
... Hi, Have you have your thyroid checked? Alot of people will develop thyroid problems after being in car crashes, I think the jerking of the neck area. Left untreated you will develop adrenal fatigue as well. The proper thyroid tests are Tsh, Free T3, Free T4, Anti-TPO and TgAb. I wasn't in a car crash but I became hypo after suddenly losing my father to cancer and... (18 replies)
... It could be because your body didn't need more Test at this time. Increasing Test will give you a boost, but if it's not needed, it will shut down production at the testes. Be very sure you're going through testosterone deficiency or any type of hormone imbalance before playing with HRT (hormone replacement therapy). Did your blood work show low Test? Are you having the... (18 replies)
... Hi Lightner! Thanks for your reply. :) I'm working on getting my thyroid problem hashed out. Was on 3/4 grain of Armour to try to shrink the nodule, but even that small amount made me have hyper symptoms. My dr and I both suspect adrenal fatigue. Just did the saliva test this weekend and will be sending it in today. The dr I'm currently seeing (and who dx'd the CFS)... (18 replies)
... What type of doctor are you seeing? A specialist? An endocrinologist??? Make sure you are seeing someone real knowledgable and that you feel really understands and listens to you. I found getting my thyroid in order first really helped me figure out which were overlapping symptoms and what was the CFS/ME or FM. FYI, with treatment of my hypothyroidism with levoxyl (I stay...

... Tawnyjade- I think your right, it seems like I am always hearing someone with minor aches and pains or fatigue saying they have ME or FM and I wish the doctors would further classify it, since there are people like me out there that can't work anymore or keep up the house and I'm only 34. It just seems like when I tell people that is the reason for sleeping so much, pacing,... (18 replies)
... Was just dx'd with CFS today and the dr suspects adrenal fatigue as well as heavy metal toxicity. All this on top of a thyroid nodule the size of a lemon. Fun, huh? He sent me home with a saliva test kit, a urine DMPS mercury chelation test kit (apparently this will test the amount of mercury in my tissues), and a list of blood tests. Since this all just happened... (18 replies)
... Hi Summer; Yes I Have Started The Weekly Testosterone Injections. Been About 4 Weeks Now On It. Initially I Was Feeling Alot Better, But Over The Last Week, The Fatigue And Foggy Head Has Come Back. I Absolutely Have Had No Energy The Last Week And Feel Terrible. I Have A Followup Appt. With My Doctor For Next Week, But Called Today And Asked If He Can See Me Asap. I'm... (18 replies)
... I was told the same thing, and it affects women more because of all of our hormones, I am waiting to go on the bioidentical hormones to see if they help. What do you do about yours? (18 replies)
... I have both ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. It seems like Fibromyalgia is very common now. A lot of people I know say they have it. I guess I am guilty of the same thing that frustrates me about these "invisible" diseases. Most of these people sure don't seem to be affected. A couple of them, I know really are in pain, though. I've been wondering if the doctors over here have... (18 replies)
... Can someone describe how the saliva test is done? I am going to a new doc next week and want to ask about this, but I've heard they have to take samples throughout the day, and that's why most doctors don't like to even bother. Is this true? (18 replies)
... I can tell you that I too have been diagnosed with both. I've had Blood, urine and saliva tests done. The saliva test showed that I had severe adrenal fatigue. I found a doctor who was willing to treat me with Cortef and Armour. This did NOTHING for me. I've also tired all kinds of natural remedies with it as well. I finally found that I had Mono. Mono was the... (18 replies)
... I think that most people who have CFS and related problems also have adrenal fatigue. The only real measure though of the adrenals is through a saliva test, which most docs won't prescribe. (18 replies)
