I've had CFS for, well, a very long time (20+yrs) and it's certainly not getting any better. The past 4 years have been a huge relapse and without doubt the worst I've ever been. Whilst I completely agree that ME/CFS is a thing in its own right, I'm just still not ready to just accept that this is it and so still looking for other possible answers/causative factors.
In May after some blood tests I started on an optimum B12 protocol with assistance from a very knowledgeable B12d group, some improvement has been made with some symptoms, but the exhaustion never budges.
My mother has long had a theory that she has a thyroid issue as she has many of the same symptoms but drs have always told her she's in range and all fine, and similarly when I've had mine tested periodically they've said the same.
The B12 has opened my eyes to what 'normal' means on a blood test and so I'm back to reviewing the thyroid again because I'm not convinced that it isn't a problem. I attach a copy of my most recent results and the symptom checker from the Thyroid website so you can see where I am.
Any feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks for reading
