... ue. I haven't seen very many doctors about it and although I have almost all of the symptoms of CFS, I think there's something else wrong. I am going to see an endocronologist this week and was wondering if anyone else had any luck seeing them or any specialist? ... (5 replies)
... he said he knew because it was how I acted !!!! So now I am seeing a endocronologist and she is having to wean me off of the cortisol hoping to wake the glands up. If this doesn't work I may have to be on these meds the rest of my life. ... (6 replies)
... Lala, there's a test called the ACTH test my endocronologist did. IT tests your cortisol levels. That's how I know. Not going to do the Dr T thing right now, still giving this Dr. a chance to figure things out. ... (24 replies)

... st week. It's not at a level of 4.5 or 4.7...I'm waiting for them to send me the results, but this is what the doctor told me over the phone. This doctor was a Endocronologist and she said that I really need to see a Rheumatologist. Has anyone seen a Rheumatologist for this? ... (1 replies)

... Thank you. I'll keep it in mind and see about having the test sent out to CA just to be on the safe side. (5 replies)

... Debra, Like you, I had classic CFS symptoms ... still do, but I now understand these are symptoms of Lyme. I, too, was tested for Lyme early on by specialists, but at the wrong labs (there are only a few that really understand how to test for Lyme.) For years I scoffed at any suggestion I could possibly have Lyme, but at the urging of someone on the Lyme board here finally... (5 replies)

... I'm glad they finally found your Lymes, Peregrines, and that you're getting the treatment you need. For me, that wasn't the case. I have been tested for everything one can think of by a top rheumatologist and Lymes is not in the picture. Besides, in my neck of the country, we're more likely to get West Nile virus from mosquitos than Lymes or, since we spray our subdivision... (5 replies)

... I would consider checking for Lymes Disease as well, but it can only be done reliably at certain labs. IgeneX (in California) is one of the best and docs can draw and send to them. I wouldn't even bother using Quest, Lab Corp, etc. as they continually show false negatives. The reason I suggest this is because of the great number of people wih CFS who are now finding out...

... Ask your endo if they will do a TRH test - not a TSH test- to check your thyroid. Also since you have CFS, see if they will test your conversion ability. By that I mean your ability to turn T4 the inactive thyroid hormone into T3 the active thyroid hormone. also ask them to do a Reverse T3 test and ask if they have ever treated a CFS patient or patients and if so, how many...

... Yes would need to see an endocronologist. My Dad has been urging me to see one for months since endocrine problems run in my family. Apparently the typical old thyroid test is not sensitive enough to pick up slight nuances that can still cause problems in some people. My neurologist actually ran some blood tests for me that are more in depth so I am hoping... (2 replies)
... hey folks I'm a 23 y/o male and for a few years now--probably abou 3-- i have had a constant fatigue...more on the level of sluggishness or lethargy. This last november, though, i started having spells of fatigue for a week or so that are really intense. I get too tired to want to eat, my muscles feel weak and sort of burn, but not too badly. I'm pretty miserable in... (4 replies)
... Hi Melody19, I started to get fatigued early last year and by Sept 01 I was unable to stand. I only managed to haul myself to the bathroom, brush my teeth and fall back in bed again - the whole day, everyday. Thankfully, my husband was very supportive and understanding, nevertheless, it affected my daily life as I could no longer go in to work regularly and the extreme fatigue... (1 replies)
