I have been ill for the last nine months since being diagnosed with Glandular Fever. Originally, I was told I would recover within six months, and foolishly I continued working fulltime even after my diagnosis. Eventually, I lost my job, and thus my dream of being a graphic designer, due to my illness. Since my diagnosis, my health has deteriorated rather than improved. I live with chronic fatigue, painful pins and needles / prickly feeling all over my body, headaches, muscular pain, swollen glands, and sore throat. I am in constant pain. Recently, I did another mono-spot test which came back negative, and I have been diagnosed with Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome. In my efforts to find answers as to why I have failed to recover, I discovered in my online searching that there is a strong link between Glandular Fever and CFS/ME. I was wondering if there's a possibility the virus has led to me developing a chronic illness? And how might I go about getting diagnosised? My GP is currently refusing to entertain a rediagnosis, and inisists that my primary diagnosis is still Glandular Fever / Post Viral Fatigue. I'm terrified and I Don know what to do.
