Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) from Shingles?

Hi and welcome to my blog, which is about how I ended up being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). It explaining how I believe I ended up with this condition, how it has affected me and how I am trying to deal with it at the moment.

My initial blog posts give you the history of how I believe I ended up being finally diagnosed with CFS. If you read the numbered posts that you see in the Blog Archive list to the right starting from number 1 "What is this all about?" then you will read my story below in the correct sequence.

I hope you find this blog interesting and will give some feedback if you believe you have CFS from the same cause as mine and perhaps indicate if and what treatment or strategies etc are helping you to recover or deal with your CFS.

4. My plan?

My plan for mid 2002 was to spend a few weeks through the summer recharging my batteries and hopefully all would be well. During this time and probably because I was checking on my general health, I became aware of a bump in my groin area and it was confirmed that I had a hernia. So as I was not working it seemed logical to get it done as soon as possible and I also wondered if in some way this might have been part of my current health problem at that time.

My hernia operation went okay, the only problem was a slight concern about my blood pressure being a bit low during the operation and shortly afterwards. My recovery from the operation went basically as it should have done, but I was still feeling low and as if running on empty.

During November of 2002 I thought I was going to come down with a cold but all that happened was that I started having a stuffed up sinus and Tinnitus start on the right side of my head, both of which did not go away. By the end of 2002 I was starting to feel a bit worse.

The plan had obviously not worked as my batteries had not been recharged.

Go to Part5. A process of elimination, although I didn’t know it at the time!
