Do you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and POIS? My 21 year experience with sudden onset of both, and the learning that ensued leads me to believe in a common link.  There is tremendous overlap in symptoms, effective treatments, metabolic issues, and geneti

Yes. Onset at same time.
Yes.  Onset of POIS before CFS.

How many here also have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and POIS?
« on: March 15, 2012, 10:26:17 PM »
Want to see the overlap in this forum of POIS and CFS.
Simultaneous onset of CFS and POIS since Feb 1993. Married since 1989.

Helped by Immunocal (I explained how to take in previous posts).  Some relief on day one and day two.  It affects neurotransmitters.

Is that a clinical diagnosis for CFS or just symptoms of?

I had both CFS (clinical diagnosis) and POIS. I had all the usual POIS symptoms from the age of 16-35. Fortunately, both the CFS and POIS symptoms slowly improved over the years, i'm only experience the systems at around 20% intensity these days.

Hi Lithium!

 Did you mention you have CFS?  Do you feel tired all the time?  That's exactly what I feel. CFS usually involves fever so do you have that?
 I tend to feel cold all the time but sweat a lot (ever since my POIS started). Do you have similar symptoms?

My mom was clinically diagnosed with CFS. She was bedridden for about a year when I was in kindergarten. I've never asked doctors about whether or not I might have it too. I definitely see some similarities between POIS and CFS though.

PS. mmrraba, voting is disabled on this thread. did you do that intentionally? just thought i'd double check  :)
Experienced POIS since 2002.
My symptoms include: brain fog, depression, physical and mental fatigue, memory problems, social anxiety, concentration problems, myalgia, inflammation.

I think that being a state of constant POIS over most of these last 7 years possibly could have caused my body to be in a permanent state that is nearly identical to chronic fatigue syndrome. I can't really tell though because I haven't had the willpower lately to abstain longer than a few days.

I wouldn't have said so until I started taking D-Ribose and realised I had no energy and was getting next to no physical exercise because POIS (whatever it is) was making me tired. Some of the symptoms were identical to a girl I know who was diagnosed with CFS earlier this year.

There is something going on with the age of 35.
