I was diagonised a few years ago. I was very tired, sore throat, and felt like I had a fever with muscle aches I went to my family doctor who treated me for a sinus infection. After not getting better they did blood work and told me I had MONO. This never got better, I was falling asleep at work. Had a hard time getting up out of a chair because of pain. I had lots of memory issues. The sent me to a specialist who sent gave me B 12 injections and ADP. I started to get a little better. I still have a hard time waking up and fall asleep at work. I now take Aderial only when needed. My family doctor put me on Cymbalta which has been wonderful. This has helped with depression caused from the symptons but also the muscle ache and pains. I guess you could say I am in remission but everytime I get a sore throat and no other cold or allergy issues I am concerned that my health suffer. The unfortunate problem is the price of Cymbalta. My insurance changed this year and have to pay the full price which is $440 a month. My doctor gave me a couple of month as samples but if anyone knows of a program for discount on this medicine. I dont wish this disease on anyone, most people do not understand even family. If I get this thing back I dont know if I could handle it. Good luck to everyoen.View Thread

So I was diagnosed with CFS roughly 2 years ago. I am now 23 years old and have been dealing with it for 4 or 5 years now. Is it possible to just have the fatigue with no other symptoms? I have no pain or disease to cause it. Are there any tests, other than blood work, that anyone could recommend for me to get to start ruling things out?
