I’ve posted a couple of topics recently as a relatively new member (3 months in). While many of my symptoms seem to be improving, and have improved vastly since the first month, I’ve noticed new symptoms setting in past few days and want to get some input from others.
My main symptoms are primarily neurological (insomnia, anxiety, and stress tolerance), although I am currently now experiencing some reduced libido and reduction in erection quality and more difficult to get an erection as well, although not impossible.
Until now when I get good sleep, I feel relatively normal, meaning I can enjoy the things I usually do. I have a passion for playing games and enjoy playing with my kids and watching certain shows. However, past few days this has seemed to go away, I don’t get enjoyment from much of anything or have any drive to do these things I used to love. I still feel it almost come back for very brief periods and I feel fleeting enjoyment in some other things as I go about my day, but for the most part I’ve lost it. I’ve basically lost connection to the things that previously defined me. I’m a bit of a zombie right now just going through the motions.
Is this depression or some other symptom? Is this common among PFS patients? I don’t feel particularly sad or anything, although I can still feel sad. Cried at a funeral the other day. What is this? Does it commonly go away over time? I know 3 months is early and things are still very up and down for me. Just a few days ago, I wanted to play games.
Just trying to figure out what’s going on and hope to get some feedback from others that have experienced and recovered from this particular symptom. I’m pretty scared to peruse the forum now as my stress tolerance can’t take the negative posts, I’m looking for some positive stories/notes here if at all possible for this symptom.
