I have just realised I have and diagnosis confirms ME/CFS / (maybe Fybro) - I am 29 and have never worked anything less than full time - I think I have suffered with ME for at least 3 yrs, the last 6 mths have got worse and the last month much worse. My back is so painful everyday with knots and sore points all over, spasms, pins and needles down my right leg and arm, kind of dead leg feeling (does anyone else have this feeling - I dont know if it is a trapt nerve or something, but dr doesnt seem concerned) - but why does it keep coming back over the last 2 weeks???. Chronic fatigue throughout days and weeks, all different times, depression is now trying to kick in (I am prone to mild) and anxiety (prone to that too.), I have mild digestion issues, IBS symptoms, some abdominal pain, thrush every single month, etc... I have such a responsible job with no possibility of going part time apparantly and I am so worried about what to do - dr just signed me off for a week to try re-coup, but cant even take the whole week off due to work. My partner is understanding to a point, but I dont think he realises what I am saying when I say im scared about the hours I am expected to do - I am so on and off with symptoms, but most symptoms are there most of the time.......he says can you afford to drop in wage etc - we have a joint mortagage and bills like anyone else........I am so worried and dont know which way to turn!
