Hi, I am new to the message board and have posted once before. My question is I have been diagnosed in Phoenix in 2000 with CFS. Positive ebv and cmv. Also, I was dx with narcolespy and hypothroidism. I have worked for 20 years and last August moved to Tucson and husband was deployed I did not get a job right away because we were buying a house. (another move I handle) Husband was deployed 3 days after the first move, so I was left with the unpacking. Anyway my question, I had a flair up in July - swollen glands, sore throat, headache etc. The doctor I see is a 1 year intearn and I sometimes have to see another dr.. I sleep for at least 16- 20 hours a day. When I went to see him I asked if he would support a SSID claim and he said that the cfs was in 2000 and I would need to go to other dr to support the claim. Even though I was dx with narcolepsy my sleep studied were not a true reading for narcolepsy. I would fall asleep within 2 minutes when I had the multiple sleep latent tests. They made me take them twice because the 1st time I was on Zoloft and the doctor said it may interfere with reading and to stop taking and get retested. So I will be seeing a pulmonary dr in November and pyschist and an endo dr. After this he may support my DX of Chronic fatigue. Would you change doctors? I never though I would be applying for SSID so I did not get copies of my records. How long will SSI want records from? How long leagally do doctors have to keep records? When I 18 I had a simple umbilical hernia repair and the doctor left metal stitches inside that made me get gangrene which I carried in my system for a year. And had 5 more Surgeries to clean out the infection. Please advise on some of my questions.
