I am at my wit's end over here and don't know what to do or where to turn. I am trying to figure out what the heck is wrong with me and how to get answers and feel better. I'll give my history and symptoms and I hope that someone might have some information or a direction for me to go in. 1.5 years ago I got a "sinus" infection. I got them 4-5x a year, nothing unusual, or so I thought. My biggest problem was the horrid sore throat. I took antibiotics and it went away. Within days off of the antibiotics, it came right back. I went back on antibiotics. It went away. I went off antibiotics and it came right back within days. This pattern continued. I went to a second opinion ENT, then to a third. I went to an infectious disease doctor, she said that I just had a bad sinus infection and put me on two very strong antibiotics for one month. On antibiotics, I felt great. Once I went off, the throat hit with a vengence. I was tired, definitely more tired than usual, but not too exhausted to ever get out of bed. I have two young boys, the youngest will likely get an AHDH diagnosis so I just figured the exhaustion was from never stopping for a milisecond. My mind doesn't work right anymore, again, I always attributed it to the fact that I live on edge every single day with a very difficult toddler. I also went for allergy testing, all negative. I then sought a fourth ENT opinion (still thinking a sinus problem) to a highly reputable doctor in NYC one year ago, and he immediately looked at my bloodwork, listened to my story and told me "this is Epstein-Barr, this is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" I then went to a CFS specialist who confirmed CFS (and Fibro?) and said my EBV and HHV6 titers were very high. I have been on Amantadine and Carnitine, with no improvement. I am now on sleeping pills as I do not sleep well. I have intermittant tingling and numbness in my hands, feet, knees and nose. I do not have any pain to speak of, except my throat. In my heart, I believe my throat flares truly are *infections* and not CFS/EBV throat pain because they ALWAYS respond to antibiotics within 24-48 hours. I've done about 17 rounds of antibiotics in the past 1.5 years. I can't live on them and I can see they are losing their effect already. I've recently started with a weird breathing wheezy thing. I am also dizzy frequently. I went to a chiropractor and when he tried to work on me I winced in pain. He said I shouldn't have pain by just touching me in the areas he did but I would literally jump off of the table. Even when my kids try to come climb to be near me I worry about them hurting me. I don't have any pain just sitting here, but when someone touches me, that elicits unusual pain. If you have gotten this far, THANK YOU! If this sounds remotely like Lyme and not CFS/EBV and you have a great Lyme doctor in NJ/near NYC that may be able to help me, can you please provide me with the name. I am only 36 years old and have two young children to care for and feel like a failure on a daily basis over here because I can't balance everything because I never feel good. Thank you all so much for your help.
