Karen, I went through the rigmarole of registering just so I could reply to you. And you actually posted in 2012 ~ every time I read something helpful on these forums, it's from years ago and I always wonder what the update is.I also had a well-paying, soul-sucking job which I finally had to leave a month ago. I'm a workaholic, never thought it would come to this and, honestly, I thought I would bounce right back after leaving. I haven't. Now I just have no distraction from the hell (CFS+IBS). You do give me some hope, though, that I might feel better in a few months. That is just what I need as I started to feel so hopeless and yesterday had my first ever panic attack (wouldn't wish that on ANYONE).I have had every test done under the sun, thousands of dollars in medical bills and have resigned myself to just what you said: probiotics, B-complex, epsom salt baths and massages. For IBS, I am taking benefiber and colace, but nothing helps ~ I have drenching night sweats and every time there is slight movement or pressure in my bowel, my blood pressure drops, I get nauseous and I have to lie on the floor to keep from passing out. This on top of CFS!My doctors are the same way. I'm not sure what I am going to do financially. Can I ask how old you are and what city you live in? Thanks for the post!

I'm having exertional malaise that sounds an awful lot like CFS - the funny thing is that it is near as I can tell exactly the same as the malaise I feel when having an IBS diet trigger. Has anyone else experienced this?
