User :   Hi, my 16 year old daughter has been poorly for the last 9 months, she was previously very active, going dancing every night after school, however she suffers from chronic fatigue, and can Hardly walk further than 100 yards and at a very very slow pace, she also suffers from joint and muscle pain, nausea feeling, tiredness, headaches and light headed and dizziness. After 6 months she was diagnosed with M.E. After attening a private clinic last week and talking to others with M.E. We are not convinced that this is what she is suffering from. We believe that her problem may be to do with the Adrenal Gland, what should we do next and what tests should we insist on being done. She was tested once for Adrenal problems, but thus consisted of one blood test in the morning, however we have read that tests should be done regularly through a 24 hour period and also consist of saliva tests also.
She desperately wants to return to a normal life and return to school which she has been unable to attend for about 7 Months.
Please help!
