CFS: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
CFIDS: Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome
ME: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
All different names for the same thing.
I’ve written about how my depression would lift with rest. Depression is a very common attribute of CFIDS. What if some of my depression was caused by CFS/CFIDS/ME?
One source states that “Some medications including benzodiazapines, beta-blockers, sedatives, antidepressants, and excessive use of antibiotics can cause fatigue.”
So you get myalgic encephalomyelitis, get depressed, and take antidepressants, which make it worse, and there you go on the not-so-merry-go-round.
Have any of you been diagnosed with a fatigue illness? Taken drugs? Had reactions to them? Please either comment here or notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any experience with fatigue/depression/drugs.
