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.

Spent 5 days in hospital on DHE treatment.

The next treatment I tried was a 5 day course of DHE (intravenous dihydroergotamine) which meant I stayed in hospital for the 5 days and was given the DHE drug 3 times a day with anti-sickness medication given 30 minutes for before the DHE as this drug can make you feel sick. The DHE drug took about 60 minutes to be given intravenously.

Unfortunately this treatment also did not help to reduce my migraine headache, in fact my headaches have been a little worse since the treatment.
