Might want to check out the forum phoenix rising. It's about people who have chronic fatigue syndrome or myalgic encephalitis. Basically, there are a group of post-viral syndromes that cause fatigue and other symptoms. The way I understand it, the adrenal glands and the HPA axis in general are heavily involved. IAbout a year ago I became ill for about 2 weeks, felt like a flu just worse - whole body aches, cold to the bone, sore throat and inflamed glands etc. Even after blood tests from the hospital they couldn’t tell me what it was and even though I tested negative for it, they said it was probably glandular fever as a lot of people test negative and still have It.
Now, for as long as I can remember after that I’m constantly tired. I do a very physical job and climb some evenings but even when I take time off, I feel just as fatigued.
Any ideas? Is it worth getting looked at privately?
