Anyone Diagnosed with CFS after Pregnancy?

Hi All,

I hope someone may be able to help me.

I am currently undergoing numerous blood tests for really severe fatigue. Prior to giving birth to my son two years ago I was a picture of health, as soon as I was pregnant I developed severe sinus problems, allergies and rhinitis. My sinus issues have never gone away and I have slowly crashed and burned with fatigue two years later. Currently I am signed off work due to severe fatigue and lack of concentration/coordination. Everything is pointing towards CFS/M.E as I am showing numerous symptoms, however, I then feel like I'm imagining it as I used to be so 'on it'. I just wondered if any other mums have been diagnosed with CFS/M.E post birth and how long it took them to get diagnosed?

Were you @gottaslowdown ? Everything points to it's what's wrong with me, problems started 5 years ago post-birth!

I meant I was wondering too. I know people who this happened to.

If you read through lots of ME/CFS stuff online, you'll find that triggers were often a virus, trauma, pregnancy, operation etc. They're still researching what exactly happens to trigger the CFS state and what exactly it is. I.e. How to re-set the body back to healthy. I hope people don't have to wait too long for the answers. It destroys lives.

Sorry whogivesafeck to hear that. flowers Have a look at Dr Myhill online. She talks lots of sense about how to start healing the body. Doesn't work for everyone, but seems to have a high success rate. Good luck!

What else have they tested? Wouldn't be surprised if they've missed something.

Vitamin D, B12, folate, full thyroid panel, full iron panel, cortisol etc etc?

I had everything tested last year - only thing it showed was slight vitamin d deficiency and slightly elevated liver values (with no obvious cause). Everything else fine.
