    Oh deary, paracetamol gives me nothing but stomach ache, so I stay away from it. However OTC co codemol, is pretty good - perhaps give that a try?? Have you tried reflexology? that is good for pain relief. I find it's good for settling me down and banishing away some of the pain I am experiencing.

    Yea people say Counselling is good, I personally don't rate it. From my experience I honestly can't tell you how it's help me apart from cry like a **** in front of someone I didn't know. But having a good friend, ie like you've got your bf. is a good person to have around, to help you. Although they might not be counselling in such a manner, it is a good source to have, someone to talk to and etc.

    Are you taking any vitamins??? . . . .
    I might do. My parents are a bit funny about letting me take stronger painkillers but they can see I need it so I'll ask about it I have tried, but nothing seems to help. I have an appointment with a rheumatologist soon which might help hopefully

    I get so uncomfortable with new people I don't think I'd be able to open up at all. The real problem is that when I do need my boyfriend he isn't always there because it's a LDR and we see each other once a month. But it's amazing how much he's helped just through phone calls

    I have done in the past but they don't have any effect on me whatsoever. If I'm ill with a virus or something I take them but I don't think they help me on a day to day thing

    Thank you for your help *hugs*

    The co codemol are OTC, so although a tad stronger, they aren't loadsss stronger. They are one's which you dissolve which I have found a great help. Defo look into it, as it might help you.

    The only person I have moaned, cried to is my mum because she lives with me on a day to day basis, she knows what i'm going through. So when pain gets too much, I whinge and cry to her. Although she can't physically do anything, she can sympathise and comfort (ok that sounds so childish, but hopefully you understand what I mean).

    Vitamins I use to take as and when I could be bothered and remembered. But reading up on this virus, and etc vitamins are apparently pretty good in building up the immune system. So going to talk to my Dr tomorrow and see what he suggests, and go from there. I am determined to beat this, as it's v debilitating and depressing. So will do everything I can to try and beat and get better.

    You''re welcome *hugs*

    Without a noticeable fever, yes. If they've done a blood test and found you have glandula fever, that's what you have.
    UPDATE: Just got back from the Dr. Dr told me my FBC is fine, the gynae examination and tests I had done are fine, other things bloods I had done are fine, apart from the liver, which is still giving a slight high reading. I also had an ultrasound last week, which is fine. Dr said to me the test they did for Glandular fever indicates that at some point I have had Glandular fever, however it's not current. So I now don't know what to do/think! :/ I had another blood test done today to look at my liver again, to see what it's doing. I have also been given some gastro tablets (for the chest) to see if the pain I am enduring is gas related, as that is something that runs in the family.

    All I know is a feel like ****e still, tired, got chest pain still (since November), and my appetite is rubbish! :/

    Oh no, hope you get a firm diagnosis soon. It's so horrible being in the dark.

    I didn't get chest pain when I had glandular fever.

    I reckon the virus (EBV) is what is causing me the problem. I have no recollection nor does my mum of me ever having Glandular fever! I'm taking a stab in the dark it's that, and the chest pain is related to it. Because it's all connected, started at about the same time. But I'm still being referred to the Cardiologist and Gastric specialist to see what's going on.

    Had bad news today, my Grandma passed away. However because I am not fit, I can not travel to Jamaica. So I will be here in the UK, on my own, whilst my family (mum, dad and bro) go down to help the rest of the fam. bury her ). Absolutely gutted.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandmothers passing away. I imagine it must be quite a difficult time for you right now. I went through the same thing in August. My Grandmother passed away. We were so close and my siblings, cousins and I had all grown up around her, it was so sad to lose her. She had been suffering from cancer for a few years and it was only a matter of time.
    I cried for weeks but then I came to realise that at least now she's in a safe place, to remember all the good memories and also celebrate her life rather than dwelling on the loss.

    I hope you get through this difficult time and just be thankful for the life your Grandmother had. You can always PM me if ever you need to talk to someone.
