Hi everyone, hope your all doing ok.
About 3 or 4 weeks ago I had a bout of tonsilitis which was treated with 10 days of antibiotics. However, ever since finishing the antibiotics I feel dreadful. On and off I been feeling nauseous and had indigestion and just generally felt a bit dodgy.
However, now I have the WORST fatigue I have ever experienced. To the point I actually just have to lie in bed. I also have some vision issues, nothing too severe, just a delay in focussing, very mild dizziness and very tired and heavy eyes. My parents are visiting at the moment and they have had to take charge of looking after my two small kids as I’m completely useless. I called my MS nurse today as am worried I’m having a relapse. She said she doesn’t think so and she thinks I’m still recovering from the tonsilitis and the fatigue is just exacerbating my symptoms. I find it so difficult to believe what they tell you as it’s so scary!
Im now absolutely paranoid that I have ME or chronic fatigue syndrome or something. Generally I’ve been doing ok for the last 3 years with my MS so these symptoms have freaked me out a bit.
Has anyone else suffered with this type of fatigue before and how long did it last? My parents have to leave at the weekend and I’m concerned I’ll not be able to look after the kids
Any advice greatly appreciated. Love to all xx
