Two weeks ago I was surprisingly diagnosed with shingles. I followed the doctors orders and took antiviral medication for a week. However, they played havoc with my bowels. Whilst I appreciate that I’m still in the recovery stage. I’m so tired it’s almost bone deep. I’m exhausted all of the time, I struggle to get out of my bed in the morning and I can fall asleep anywhere. I still have pain in my arm akin to carpel tunnel syndrome and my jaw is sore to the point that I struggle to open my mouth. I’m worried that I may end up with chronic fatigue syndrome and because of my loss of appetite I’m going to end up losing weight far too quickly. I know that I need to pull myself out of my emotional slump and try to perk up. I also need to feel more human and not rely on caffeine to keep me going. If there is anyone that can advise me on this I would very much appreciate it.
