Hello, I'm 35 years old and female. I got a cold about six weeks ago and generally declined from there with fatigue and weakness. I thought I had just a regular cold so I took a couple of days off work, then went back to work and tried to work through it. I was getting more and more fatigued but kept trying to do basic things like going to the store. Eventually I couldn't do it anymore and I ended up in bed and haven't gotten back up in about four weeks except to go to appointments in a wheelchair. Just a few weeks ago I was working full-time and liked to go hiking and go to the gym. I also am generally healthy and like to eat whole foods and keep a healthy lifestyle. I've been doing my best to take it as easy as possible. Considering I can't walk, there isn't much I can do. Even sitting up for too long exhausts me and puts me back at square one. So I just lay here day after day. When I do that I slowly make progress, but each time then I try to do something, like have a conversation with a friend for too long and I get wiped out and then I'm exhausted again. I've been so weak there were a few times I thought I might lose consciousness but the doctors won't admit me to the hospital because I was in the ER once and my vitals were alright. Oh, and my CBC was normal and MRI of head and neck were normal. I do not have HIV nor an active case of EBV, I was tested for both. I have been tested for Gullain-Barre as well, and the test results showed that I do not have that, either. Thyroid and liver are normal. Nerve conduction studies were normal. I want to start on one of the protocols immediately, as soon as possible, but there is more than one protocol and I have no idea which one to start with. Can anybody make any recommendations? I know there is the Pall Protocol and the Titelbaum protocol. My main problem is weakness and I get muscle fatigue really badly when I try to walk which ends up in pain in my thighs. If I use my legs to even do leg lifts three or four times then the next day my legs feel dead and I can't move them at all. This is so weird. I swear I was perfectly normal a matter of a few weeks ago. Thank you for all your support and information. This has been really hard and it's not easy to keep my optimism up. Thank you.
