Two years ago I had a very bad viral infection in my throat. Could not speak, fever, swollen throat. The worst of it lasted over 2 weeks and after that gradually felt better after a month or so. After this started with numbness/pain in left arm. Dr. thought pinched nerve, had cervical MRI, showed a lesion on spinal cord. Had lots of tests to rule out MS etc. No one ever sure why the lesion and followup MRIs were not any worse so they didnt think MS. As time went by I experienced more weakness, fatigue, muscle spasms and pain all over. Eventually went to a rheumatologist who suggested I had some type of chronic fatigue. He stated early on he didnt think I had fibro. Have been treated for over 6 months now for CFS. From reading the boards here, it sounds like alot of you who have CFS also get sick alot. Since I had that virus over 2 years ago, I have not had so much as a cold! Anyone else like this or heard of this before?
