I wanted to introduce myself. This is my first post. I have been reading your posts for a while... maybe a few weeks... I don't remember... brain fog hehe, and have found them incredibly informative and helpful but I still feel like I have so many questions so I thought I would start asking some but wanted to let you know who I am first. I am a 48 year old female from Grand Junction, Colorado. About a year and a half ago I got the flu and it just never seemed to go away. I was first diagnosed with west nile virus but when it turned out not to be that I was told that I might have FM. I went to an internest for a second opinion because I was having a hard time accepting that diagnosis because I have an elevated sed rate that was basically being ignored. I have hypopnea, which is like sleep apnea for the last 8 years and he basically added oxygen to my cpap and sent me on my way saying thats it. My doc put me on vicadin and a muscle rexlaxer to help with the pain. I was also diagnosed with depression in 1989 and have actively worked on that issue since then with very poor results, being called a drug resistant depressive. I cant tell you how many people I have told I am the happiest depressive I've ever known. But after reading info on these message borard I am wondering if I haven't had CFS for most of my life and have just been working on the wrong primary issue. (I did have mono as a child). I also have type 2 diabetes. So that is totally enough about me... tell me about you. Thanks for the time and thanks in advance for all the questions I will be posting in the near future.
