Hey Harleyrider,
I first saw this a few months ago, and have been waiting for more info & studies to be done. What I've read suggests that XMRV might be what causes the chronic form of Epstien-Barr Virus, which I have.

I'm hoping that more on this retro-virus will become available soon!!!

Thanks for posting this!!!! :)
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

This is a virus that doctor's are thinking causes Chronic Fatique Syndrome.

Here is a better link to that page:

Studies and research are being done for this retro-virus, and hope soon we will know more.
When I know more I will share, was asked to be part of the research. So excited about this.
