    My mom has had those symptoms for 40 years and all we can attribute it to is Fibro/CFS

    My best to you.

    Hey. I responded to one of your posts about how I was bedridden the first 3 months of my illness. I do have had a really sick feeling, just as you described. No one knew what it was. I finally went to a new doctor (like you, all the others were baffled and said I needed an antidepressant or a psychiatrist). I finally saw a doctor who practices integrative medicine. I was tested for mycoplama and it was positive. I am not saying that is what you have, but it is worth a shot. Ask to be tested for it. Mine was really high. I wasn't tested even when I was hospitalized last September at the beginning of my illness after losing so much weight from nausea and no appetite. My doctor put me on an antibiotic, minocycline. I have been on it for about 6 weeks. I think you have to stay on it at least 6 months. The sick all over feeling that I had for months is finally getting better after being on the antibiotic. I hope you have some luck. There are other things to be tested for that some people have mentioned on this site like EBV and others that I am not sure of the name. You need to try to find a doctor that knows something about this disorder. I was so frustrated until I found one in February. Good luck and God bless.

    I have Cfs and Fms......and I feel really sick all the time too....as if I were being poisoned is the best way I can describe it. I am also very light headed alot...and unbelievably fatigued. I feel better than I did, though, as I was confined to bed for months, before I started seeing a D.O., who specializes in these disorders, and uses integrated medicine. Many of the meds and supps have helped me, at least get out of bed, and be able to do a little bit.
