Please help me figure out the cause of my year of symptoms (added post)

Okay so this started about the beginning of the year. And its gotten much worse. My symptoms are. Dizziness, nausea, cramps, hot flashes, cold flashes, lightheadedness, knees hurt, headaches almost daily, fatigue, tremors, weakness, and blurred vision. I have been to many doctors who can't figure it out. My vitamin d is low, my Ana is high but they don't have a lead on that, and my endocrine is off but he said he can't pin point anything, my endocrine is 25 but then was normal the second time, my Ana goes low to high, and I'm at my limit, I can't focus on anything and I constantly feel like I'm in a dream. Can anyone give me a lead because I'm losing my mind, I have days like today where I'm dizzy weak, hot and cold flashes like you wouldn't believe it's unbearable, I get those in episodes but all the symptoms are daily and get worse in episodes. Please help. ( I'm literally posting this everywhere in desperate need for help)

Hi, what you describe could be so many things. CFS is a diagnosis of exclusion so everything else has to be ruled out before you end up here. The testing should be extensive. Having said that, keep looking for an answer. Different specialists, doctors you believe are really listening to you.

There is no easy or quick answer or you would have already found it. Having said that, it's not all in your head. We've all been there at some point. I urge you to keep looking but look after yourself in the meantime. For fatigue - look into CBT, GET, pacing. Try to eat as best you can and try to figure out what helps or hurts. My thoughts go out to you!

You need to be taking supplements to raise your Vitamin D3 levels. You need magnesium also. Possibly Vitamin B12 too.

I had your symptoms. My ekg, blood pressure, ct scan were all normal.
I Tested anemic, iron deficient, Vitamin D deficient. My symptoms are improving after 13 weeks of taking over the counter supplements.
