You mentioned CMV herpes causing colitis, once when I was on Valtrex cuz I tested positive for Epstein Bar, Herpes 1 and 2 (even though I never had a "outbreak") only cold sores. I convinced my doc to give it to me because I thought maybe I had herpes zoster or something in my colon. about 4 days of taking it I started having normal stool, then my script ran out. A couple days past then I started it up again, when I got a new script, and the results were not the same, back to UC.
My doc is prescribing me more valtrex and I'm going to try it once again.
I'm having night sweats and my right eye gets all filled with eye junk when I wake in the morning, which I've had this before like my body is fighting an infection.
I just haven't read or heard alot of CMV causing herpes and since it would Valtrex would be a vialble solution right?
Last week I went camping and I felt a cold sore coming on my lip, bigger than life! I drive home to get my valtrex and within a hour you couldn't even tell where the cold sore was coming up, what do you make of that?
Thanks for you help. At my wits end. Lyme's disease, the antibiotics aren't working. UC my hair is falling out from the mesmeline, so I'm getting on a good multi vitamin.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild") Ulceritive colitis. Confirmed Lymes Disease on 12/8/09 , major doses of antbiotics non stop for 5 months helped alot. Now taking Klarie Labs Interphase Plus and Undyclex for yeast and pathogens, fiber (3 teaspoons a day) probiotics and charcoal tabs when die off is too much. My story is too long to write, trust me I know how you feel. Don't give up, be your own advocate and find the root of the cause.
