Hey everyone I am a 37 year old man, about 2.5 years ago I got sick with the flu 3 times in 3 weeks during the summer and never recovered from the last. My symptoms are dizziness, fog, many sensations worst being burning/cold, visual probs, stuffy nose/ears, complete exsaustion, very bad leg pain, flushing, flu like feeling and sinus problems. Oh how could I forget about the gastro problems and the peeing 4 times one day and 15 times the next. My first dx was anxiety, which I have suffered most of my life, then they thought it was inner ear. Later, after ear testing, it was changed to CFIDS, a month later changed to CFIDS/Fibro. The latest dx is lyme, even though I never tested positive for it. However I did test positive to babesia and treatment for lyme started the next day. I have tested positive to EBV, CMV, HHV-6, ANA, high cholesterol, ENG showed dizziness due to central and perifferal and babesia, a co-infection to lyme. I have been infusing antibiotics for 6 months and have not felt any differant so I still consider myself to have CFIDS. Hopefully there are some success stories here to help give me some hope to getting my life back and I know I can be helpfull to those that are new to CFIDS.
