Firstly I’d like to say thankyou for the stories you have all shared on this site which have helped so many people get through the days, weeks, months and years.
Recently i too have read your stories as I too didn’t know where to turn.
I am a fit an active person who is always on the go and have lived a healthy lifestyle.
About 12 weeks ago, I had a ear/throat infection that cleared up within two weeks while taking antibiotics. About 6 weeks ago, I suddenly felt tired during a gym workout.
I went home and rested for the remainder of the day thinking I was just tired however I woke up in the morning exhausted and with a little to no appetite. I had muscle aches and was just fatigued.
I rested the next day too and since I was not getting better I went to the doctor the following day.
After numerous tests (bloods/ecg/xrays) blood tests showed I recently had glandular fever. (Possibly about 12 weeks ago when I was sick) and was advised to rest rest rest.
Since then I have very slowly had a little bit of energy to do the normal domestic duties around home and walk for 20min twice a day.
In the last week I managed to return to work on light duties however today I crashed...like I am back to square one! I just want to cry and it feels like I am not getting better.
i look at the changes in my body and it just upsets me...the weight I’ve lost is shocking and I don’t know what to do.
over this time I’ve experienced anxiety which was scary and relied on your stories to get me through and advise me on how to cope...and .it worked so I saythankyou.
i guess if anyone has a glandular fever success story, it be great to hear it.
I’m hoping this isn’t chronic fatigue syndrome as I’m scared it is as I don’t know how I’d financially support myself. I’d like to go back to work as I enjoy it.
thankyou for reading my post.
