Sue,
I know you wrote this a while ago... so perhaps you've found some answers by now. I am new to this forum, so I can't offer much help, but I just saw that you were taking antivirals for your condition. Does your Dr. accept CFS as a real disorder? if not, then you need to find a Dr. that does. I've been counseled to not give up until I find one that has real experience with this. Otherwise an inexperienced Dr. can be prescribing antibiotics ad other meds on a regular basis not understanding how they can mess up your body ie.. destroy good bacteria, etc. I have a close friend that had chronic bladder infections and they just kept drugging her up with antibiotics. She'd end up with horrible yeast / candida / digestion issues - which were all related to ANTIBIOTICS. These were increasing her already bad health issues - and then they'd give her more antibiotics - it was a vicious cycle. She got terribly ill...

There's all kinds of info on the forum about the types of doctors to look for. I wish I could offer more help than that. I know it's very unnerving.

Have you been able to get some help?

Tracy,

thanks for your post:). i have been seeing a CFS specialist in MI for a year now. his name is dr. a. martin lerner and he is the world's most experienced doctor with antiviral therapy for CFS. he had CFS himself for 8 years but has since recovered.

i have improved a tiny bit, but because i have been sick almost 17 years now, i think it will take a very long time to get better, IF it ever happens!

please feel free to email me!

love
sue

Hi Sue, it is nice to meet you. I have never heard of using antivirals for curing CFS. But, then, I am fairly new to the diagnosis of CFS. Do you have any info on this proceedure & why it is suppose to work with CFS? At this time, I don't believe there is anything that can cure it & it is not a virus. So, please forgive me my skepticism. I would be interested in reading something on this. As Tracy said, taking antibiotics for extended periods can be harmful in themselves but I do know that with Lyme, this is the protacol. So I am on the fence here. Hugs, Denise

Denise.....first, please tell me how you got CFS. was it triggered by a flu-like illness (such as mono)??

if it was, you have a good chance of recovery with antivirals.

Sue, Hi again.  My CFS came after living for years in an extreme stress situation.  It was almost like my body was saying "please rest"  & I couldn't.  I can't remember any virus but I was so fogged at the time I didn't much listen to my body, just pushed through whatever I needed to.  I am glad you are seeing some improvement & I hope it continues.  Hugs, Denise

Hi Sue,

If you have Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) then one would think that antivirals would help. My physician, (Dr. Jenefer Huntoon) uses very strong plant enzymes to attack the virus. You can't take them if you have a sensitive stomach condition such as heartburn. They have helped me greatly and you don't have to be on them for life. Enclosed is a link describing the approach.

Chronic Fatigue; Epstein-Barr Virus; IBS; Food allergies to milk, wheat, sugar

I have been helped the most with therapeutic enzymes and botanicals prescribed by Dr. Jenefer Huntoon and relaxing music and the practice of yoga
