I'm so anxious and stressed, trying to get unexplained horrible post viral fatigue examined and diagnosed. Also hoping for some pain treatment. Wish me luck everyone!

Shyia, praying that your physician will hear you, and then discuss all options with you. Hope you leave feeling heard and hopeful !

Thank hou for the well wishes everyone, unfortunately the appointment did not go as planned. My doctor was uninterested in treating what is currently wrong with me, just what I originally came to see her for two years ago. She did give me a trial pack of a stimulant med, but did not order any tests, or make any suggestions (other than exercise a lot and sleep better, ugh). I think I will be looking for an immunologist or infectious disease specialist, but I'm going to start by consulting with my pcp and getting a copy of my medical records sent to me from all my doctors for my disability case.
