other similar conditions are lymes decease, chronic fatigue syndrome, ebstein barr virus, and lupus. Get a doctor knowledgeable in these deceases and get tested. Also note that you can have a negative test when the condition is positive in many of these conditions. I have lymes, cfs, and fibromyalgia. Learning about the deceases is my best defense in learning what I can and cannot do. Plus letting your family understand the condition helps. Good luck and God bless.
