Hello, I am new to this message board, but very happy to find you! It seems a lot of people have similar symptomps as me. Although, my symptomps are varying, recently I have: -headache -mind fog -slight fever (37.1 C) -short of breath -tiredness/fatigue -blurring eyes -muscle pains (started again in the last three days) Some strange things I recognized: - my coffee consumption raised - my weight went up (in quite short period of time) - sometimes getting impatient (totally different as before) - hypertensive - not focused - caring less about my environment (flat, office, etc) I have been having these problems for 2.5 years now (I am 30 yo.). I visited doctors from the very beginning, but mostly without any result. All the big examinations: - CT (whole body) - MRI - more than 200 hundred blood tests - x-ray of sinuses - x-ray of lung - ultrasound of liver, spleen - sample of spinal fluid (actually, I do not know the english name of it) - EEG - ECG are negative. During the blood tests, three things were found: - Epstein-Barr antitests (indicating an EBV infection, but the correct time could not be defined) - (continously) elevated liver values (ASAT, ALAT) - previous infection of toxoplasma virus One doctor believes that EBV infection may led to mononucleosis. Although, he can not offer any treatment. All the other doctors believe that I have headache and mind-fog becasue of stress and/or "subconcious" depression. Just for the fact, I am not a depressious person and always try to look at the bright side. First of all, I would like to get diagnosed. Is this CFS or not? Is my immune system down? And so on. Could you recommend some articles about what tests are used to identify CFS (I know it can not be done for sure)? What tests are used for immune system? I read about a kind of yeast test... Secondly, what treatments ar recommended to easy my symptomps. Also read about, Cavemen diets as a good try. Anyone who experienced this? Last but not least, how can I find a specialist in a specific country. Is there a list of MDs in this specific area? Actually, I live in Finland. I do appreciate all of you giving hand! Cheers, Andras PS: I will feel better! WebMaster: Quite a nice message board! Keep up your good work!
