    Hi! I am new here. I have been researching on the internet, trying to find what is wrong with me. I have been to various doctors and have been getting nowhere really. While researching I came across your messageboard. It looks like a great place. Anyway, I think I may be on to something as to what is wrong with me. I seem to have a lot of symptoms of CFS, but not all. Also, I have some different symptoms that CFS patients do not have. Sorry for rambling. I came across a disorder that sounds so much like what I have and am going to look into it. It is related to CFS (now I am getting to the point of my post!) and I thought some of you might find it interesting. It is called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.

    Hope this helps someone!

    Cindy,

    Hi! Thank you for the welcome. Welcome to you, too! I was so excited to come across the information on Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. I have been feeling so confused as to what is going on with me. I at least have some direction now. I hope the information helps you. I will be looking into this site's search engine now!

    ..is one of the symptoms attributable to the weak adrenals we have. It responds well to drinking plenty of water with a little salt in it, and taking supplements to boost the adrenals like B complex and extra vitamin B5, vitamin C, DHEA or pregnenolone and glandular extract. In extreme cases, a short term of Cortef may be needed. Of course, children should not take DHEA.

    LayingLow,

    I am sorry you are all having to deal with these things. I am glad you were each at least able to receive a correct diagnosis, hopefully that helps a little. I have most of the symptoms you listed, but until I am diagnosed I still wonder if I have really found what is wrong with me. Thank you for sharing your experience.
