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.

Dark Chocolate helps CFS!

It has been a while since my last post as I have been spending most of my time working on my website business idea that I briefly mentioned in my “15. Not a cure but things are getting better.” post.

I also had a cold and my sinuses stuffiness problem returned after my cold had gone, so I started taking the very low dose of Nortriptyline again for a while and this appeared to help dry out the sinuses again.

So basically not much has change on my CFS health front.

I have tried to do some more research on CFS and my theory that Shingles is the cause for my CFS, but I still need to do more research on this topic. One thing I came across that I think I will be trying is a report titled “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Symptoms Reduced By Dark Chocolate Consumption” ! The report suggest that dark chocolate which means chocolate with a high cocoa content and without any milk in it, may have an impact on levels of serotonin in the brain.

I will let you know how this test goes, but whatever the outcome it sounds like a good excuse to have some chocolate all be it dark chocolate.
