Both my wife (58) and son (23) were struck down with a mystery illness causing extreme fatigue, headaches, breathlessness, sight problems, depression muscle pains tingling and digestive problems. My son had this for over 3 years and was bed bound and my wife for six months both getting worse.
The NHS couldnt find the cause and put it down to psychological problems which my wife and son knew it wasnt.
Following many good reviews on this forum and thinking it looked lupus like we sought the advice of Dr Kaul of the London Lupus centre who diagnosed ME in both cases. He prescribed Hydrocloroquine and suggested rest and exercise in both cases.
Its now a month on and the results are starting to show. My son is taking a interest in his personal appearance, is starting to drum and now thinks he has a future.
My wife is back to reading, helping around the house and helping me walk our dogs as she used to.
Whilst there is some way to go we are convinced we are on the right path. Thank you to all those who sent messages of support and advice.
My special thanks to Dr Kaul who was excellent who provided my family a way out of what looked like a very deep hole.
