Hello there, my names Jane and I live in North West England. I've been reading the board for a couple of months and have got some great info from you all. Here's a bit about my health problems - I became very ill in 1996, ended up in hospital with a ruptured spleen, they found out I had glandular fever. Carried on working despite my illness, had alot of ups and downs over the years but had a very supportive boss, then went to college for 2 years so I could plan my workload and coped ok. But for about a year now things have been getting worse - constant fatigue, sore thoat, swollen glands, achy everywhere, pain in spleen area,neck and shoulders, foggy brain, and more recently, since finishing college and not being able to work, depression. My GP has diagnosed depression and put me on Cipramil, but I know its much more than that.She doesnt seem to want to discuss the possibility of CFS and Im doubting that I am really as ill as i think. Any ideas on what I should do next? Thanks by the way for such a great site.
