    Name:
    Linda
    Diagnosis:
    • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    • Another form of Orthostatic Intolerance
    Approximate Date of Illness Began:
    1980-1990
    Symptoms:
    Fever, pain, irritable bowel (IBS), insomnia (trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep), cognitive dysfunction and the weakness and dizziness that come from neurally mediated hypotension
    Antiviral or Immune Modulators That Made a Difference for You:
    IFN-a (Alpha interferon)
    Present State of Health:
    • Fully recovered - no restrictions at all
    Words of Advice:
    What surprised me the most about my recovery was that, within three months or so, I became able to rest again. I hadn't realized until then that, since I've had CFS, I've never really rested. Relaxing is a deliciously pleasurable sensation that I haven't felt since 1983.

    I don't have to worry about overdoing it because my body tells me when it's time to take a break, and I enjoy the resting. To tell you the truth, for the last few months I have thoroughly enjoyed being a total couch potato for days on end sometimes. Doing nothing actually feels good now! For the first time since I got sick, I can actually be lazy.

    And, the most important thing, I no longer respond to exertion with pain and fever. When I get tired, I just rest and feel re-energized within an hour or so. Boy, I never thought that would happen again!
