Am 46, think I have been fighting cfs for many yeats but just treated for depression, cfs never mentioned by any gp, Im constantly tired, breathless, everyday chores are a major effort, now been told my spine is very arthritic and i need two new hips and am tons of painkillers including oramorph and diazepam as well as the anti-depressants, it's all spiralling downwards and I'm convinced orthopaedic surgeon thinks all the pain is in my head I'm just a silly peri-menopausal woman feeling sorry for herself. It's cost me my job and ruined my life and puts a huge strain on my relationship with my partner and every single day is a constant struggle, going to bed is a relief. I don't know anyone else who feels like this that I can talk to and I feel ashamed to tell anyone that I'm convinced I have it. I just need to know where I can go to help instead of just drugs
