Hi all, i found this forum and really felt i could maybe find the answers i am seeking here as well as maybe find people who are going through the same thing. Firstly i am a 27 year old male who has some odd symptoms but having read around i feel confident that i do have CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), the only problem is that no doctor has diagnosed me with anything and for that reason i am left to basically support myself financially, i feel at a loss. I am simply seeking confirmation through others that i am right in my assumption this is indeed CFS. I believe this all happened because of a trauma i had for 6-9 months back in 2012, this trauma built up so much that i believe my body reacted to it.. this all started one evening when i sat down eating my dinner and i suddenly was overcome by this really strange weakness all over my body, my head felt weird and at one point I was scared my body was shutting down. Later one of my arms started shaking like crazy.. and my legs were also shaking, my legs almost impossible to stand on, my legs were like jelly and ice cold! The biggest concern was that lifting my arms and legs was very difficult like they were being weighed down by something invisible, I would say that it feels similar to having flu constantly in the way it makes your muscles weak, that is the best way i can describe it. Writing essay papers was harder as my arms constantly got tired and fatigued from being in a raised or tensed position and brushing my teeth. I have to ask if people feel the intense muscle fatigue in their bicep muscles like i do? My arms would simply drop dead with a weird type of paralyzing fatigue. I have been like this for the past 3 and half years and that amount of time keeps growing. I am scared i may have this forever as there is no sign it is going away.. this has ruined my chance of continuing my degree and living life to the fullest. Its really ruined my social life to boot and all other prospects such as wanting to settle down, get a job and get my own place, for now i am living with my parents and feel like such a burden on them at times. I sometimes wonder how i am going to support myself in the future if i cant even do physical work. Of course i have come to accept it now.. and yet i still have no official diagnosis for this problem from ANY doctor out there (how can this be?).. Walking long distances like i used to is no longer possible.. then there are other symptoms such as memory problems, crunchy muscles/joints, breathlessness, palpitations etc. I went for a head MRI some months back and my head MRI came back fine which is a good sign.. It was then i found out i had low cortisol.. i feel this has some relation to the issue. Does anyone know if CFS ever truly goes away or if there is some proven thing to help it? With that said.. Does this sound like CFS? Thanks for reading.
