Treating Low Blood Volume and Decreased Heart Function in CFS

I found Dr. Teitelbaum's website http://www.endfatigue.com/ and I have one word for it: AWESOME!!! It is packed full of so much great info. I took his free screening test and it came back:
ASSESSMENT 1. FatiguePain - Fibromyalgia by ACR Symptom Criteria 2. Probable Contributing or Associated Factors Suboptimal Adrenal FunctionSuspected Hypothyroidism-(Commonly even seen with "normal" labs)Candida/Fungal overgrowthEstrogen Deficiency 3. Suspected Contributing or Associated Factors Possible NMH (Neurally Mediated Hypotension)Chronic SinusitisInsomnia/Disordered sleepEssential Fatty acid deficiencyRule out Testosterone DeficiencyRule out bowel infections(Parasites, Clostridium Difficile, &/or Bacterial[SIBO])Low DHEA Other Diagnosis/Information Migraine Headaches(2002)
(This was just the very beginning of the report.) I was blown away at how accurate it was and how it confirmed a lot of my suspicions of what has been going on with me. He then listed a long report of vitamins, supplements and medications that might help. I have already done a lot of his recommendations so I know I'm on the right track! I might buy some of his supplements to see how I feel on them. I'm taking a lot of vitamins already but I'm sure there are some I'm missing!
Amazing! I do have low BP, and this totally makes sense. I somehow feel that the different parts of my body are not getting the oxygen and water they need. Then the pain and discomfort makes me breathe shallower, and it's a downward spiral. I feel the best after a yoga workout when I've gotten the oxygen to circulate to all areas.
