Patient discussion about fatigue syndrome

Q. I think i might have chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia. how can i tell the difference? So far, the doctors have not been able to diagnose anything and have basically been putting me on random medications just to relieve the symptoms. Symptoms I have: Fatigue (sleeping thirteen hours +) exhaustion pain in my knees, ankles, and weirdly my elbows. Headaches, congestion. I’ve been really nauseous occasionally and ended up having to go to the ER because of it.

A. Here is a site that might help you. You can type in the symptoms one at a time and it’ll give you optional illnesses that correlates with the symptoms:

Q. Has anyone tried natural hormones for hypo-thyroidism or fibromyalgia? I am on the low normal range for hypo-thyroidism (do not take meds for) and was diagnosed years ago with fibromyalgia. I take Ultram for the pain which also helps my fatigue factor but I still feel so sluggish sometimes and just want to sleep. I'm on an anti-depressant as it is. I've been hearing more about natural hormone therapy for these conditions and was wondering if anyone out there has tried this.

A. i have cfids and fibro as well as had my thyroid removed (parathyroid still in place). There really is no substitute for Synthroid that is as effective. There is with cfids and fibro. sensitivity to medications so the dosage normally given would not be the same usually lower dosages or 1/4 to 1/2 tabs. i have started on D-ribose, enada, COQ10, PB 8, Fish Oil with Omegas and primrose oil and B12 compounded shots in addition to other medications to treat medical issues that come along with the diseases. The first are homeopathic and are metabolized at a greater rate than synthetic meds which are often not processed correctly and may build up in your system. It is good to find a specialist [true specialist] or immunologist to help you with the medications and symptomologies that occur. Each person's system is different yet the way that it recognizes medications, food and such is similar and unique to the illnesses.
