I had CFS about 12-15 years ago and it stayed with me for about a year and a half back then. Fortunately, it went away although I have had a few spells -- days or two throughout the years when I felt like I had it back. Nothing chronic though. In January of this year, I had some type of virus that affected my throat and I couldn't speak for 3 days (no fever was present). I had a really stressful January completing evaluations for my employees in addition to my normal job and also planning a 50th wedding anniversary party for my in-laws. Since January, I have had a return of many of my former CFS symptoms and some new ones too - red/dry patches on my face, excess mucus, muscle weakness and feeling totally worn out. I was wondering if anyone has had a relapse such as this?
