Weak and shaky - Chronic Fatigue??

For the last nearly three months, I have been absolutely wiped out and very shaky through my whole body. Quite often it feels as though my legs are like jelly and it takes a lot of energy to move around. I had Covid back in 2020 and still have ongoing issues with my heart and sense of smell but the muscle weakness and shakiness started three days after I had the booster vaccine. I’m assuming it possibly triggered something that was maybe building in my body.
I’ve been seen by a neurologist who assures me it isn’t neurological, an endocrinologist who has done some further blood tests and am waiting for an appointment with an gastroenterologist because I also have digestive issues, which started around the same time as the shakes.
I led a very active live until a few months ago but am now exhausted all the time and the shaky feeling means that it’s hard to do anything as it just takes so much energy.
All my initial blood tests were absolutely fine, nothing even remotely borderline. I’ve not been able to work for a month now and feel a bit sorry for myself. Does this sound like it could be CFS? I’ll go back to the GP once I have all the other appointments sorted but would just be interested in hearing from anyone else that has the shakes.

@Lou0607 yes every day I get aching and pains everywhere, weak and shaky, chronic fatigue.


user1497873278 · 02/03/2022 10:03

Coolusername do you have any periods of feeling normal/better


Lou0607 · 02/03/2022 10:56

@coolusernam Is there anything that helps with the shaky feeling? I know when I wake up in the morning that I’m going to feel that way as my muscles are already tired and heavy. Everything is such an effort!

I'm sorry I forgot to check this thread until now.
Muscles that just don't want to cooperate. Weird, shaky, weak. No answers though.
