 post viral chronic fatigue

I came down with an upper respiratory tract infection 6 weeks ago and    
have been unable to shake it. I've been getting acupuncture once or twice  
per week, combined with cups and moxabustion, and taking echinacea and a
Chinese cough medicine called 'African sea-cocnut {*filter*}liquid'. Both the
doctor and the acupuncturist call it 'post viral chronic fatigue.'

The doctor has tested for Ross River & Barmah fevers (I'm in Australia)    
pertussis and mycoplasma. I still have heaviness and tightness in the chest,  
body aches, abnormally low levels of energy, and tire easily
(e.g., had to lie down for an hour and a half after going to a museum
exhibit!) I'm only able to  work about six hours per day, and that with

Any advice on dealing with this?
