Hello all. I have a question. I apparently have an active infection of HHV-6 in my blood, with 951 copies/ml found. Typically a healthy person would have under 200. I am acutely ill and have been for several weeks.
My insurance won't cover anti viral medication, and it's extremely pricey - in the tens of thousands for the dose/time my doctor wants to put me on it.
A few questions... Can I overcome an acute infection of HHV-6 at my age (female in her 30's) without getting Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? I have been taking a lot of supplements including raw garlic, echinacea, CoQ10 etc and notice some improvement lately. Can I knock this thing out or am I doomed? I've been bedridden for about 5 weeks, but just started taking a few steps this week with the help of supplements.
Please help guide me, I don't know what to do! I've never been so sick in my life.
