I am a mom of 4 kids. My oldest is almost 12yo. I'm on here to help my dd. She is sick. Drs don't know why. They can't find anything wrong with her. Her symptoms are, in order of severity: severe fatigue headache sore throat achey She has missed 17 days of school and has been sick since the end of Sept. Her headache never goes away and I can't even wake her up in the mornings. All of her tests have come back negative and in perfect range. She just got a CT scan on Friday and we have another Dr appt on this coming Friday. This all started with a cold that never went away. Of course the first test was strep--negative, then bloodwork--mono, EBV, etc. She just had all of these tested for last Jan too. She did this same thing 9 mo ago. She was positive for EBV---but not active. So she has the virus in her system. I'm not sure of her levels this time around. Does any of this sound like CFS? I think the Dr is thinking more of depression than anything now. We have a family hx of a variety of mental stuff. But with her---the only mental thing she has is panic attacks---twice/year. It's really worrying me because this is not her personality at all!! She is a fun, bubbly, giggly girl! She misses her friends, misses youth group, and has been on the swim team since 8yo!! She just missed her first swim meet of the year this weekend. She WANTS to do these things, but she says her body won't let her.
