Ex boyfriend is experiencing some of the same symptoms that I have experienced.

  Do any of you have any idea as to why my ex has experienced a loss of appetite, sore body, fatigue, terrible sinus infections, swollen legs, and trouble breathing?

Most of those symptoms are common symptoms associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Case studies have shown that severe Nutcracker Syndrome (Renal Vein Compression) can cause Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Many people with Nutcracker Syndrome also have been diagnosed with May-Thurner Syndrome (Iliac Vein Compression) which can cause swollen legs and difficulty breathing. I have this condition and was having many of the same problems myself including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Both of these conditions are considered rare but they are actually very common just rarely diagnosed as many doctors have never heard of either of these. They might even explain the symptoms that you’re having as well. I would recommend joining a Nutcracker Syndrome group on Facebook. Very few doctors understand these conditions so members of these groups can be very helpful in getting them either ruled in or out. Hope this might help!

Hello~I know this was posted a few months ago, but, I am wondering how he is feeling?  Johnny had a very good response, if things haven't cleared up, then seeing a GP for some blood work is in order.
