    Welcome to our board. Talk to your parents and get them to take you to a CFS specialist. It is much, much easier to get this thing into remission when you are young before it goes on for years. While you are sick, you are very vulnerable to infections of opportunity and you need to be tested for all kinds of chronic infection. You may have chronic active EBV or even have Lymes Disease. Trust me, it is very important to get a handle on this now. Your youth and relatively short time of illness (I know, I know, it seems like forever to you) are on your side for a recovery, but you need help. Without it, you may not recover. See a good doc ASAP.

    BTW, I think Glandular Fever is a term docs use when they know something is wrong but they don't know what.

    Love, Mikie
