Hi Shy Guy, looks like we have a lot in common. I too had mono pretty bad when I was about 13 - 14. I also goat West Nile about 6 years ago. Never seemed to recover, kept having what I called 'relapses', until my Dr. told me a couple months ago I had Fibro. Don't know when it went from WN to Fibro, but here I am.
I was able to turn things around a couple years ago - for a couple of years. Then this summer it got pretty bad, ended up going to the Dr. and that is when I got diagnosed. Here is what I noticed for me.
A couple years ago I started taking liquid stabilized ion and noni juice. This summer I quit taking the ion and within a month or two I was in pretty bad shape. Started taking it again and within a few weeks, I was doing OK again.
Now I am not great, but am much better. I also have read on the difference between being acidic and alkaline. inflammation and disease need an acidic environment, so if you can try to eat more alkaline that might help. The last thing is, the fibro forum on this site is a bit more active than the CF. You might want to jump over there and get some more support.
