CFS, antibiotic treatment?
Thanks for the good advice.
At the moment, I'm on large doses of oral penicillin and I'm able to function more or less normally. Interestingly, the more frightening symptoms (vertigo, extreme fatigue, insane leg weakness, numb face, cognitive changes) seem to resolve very quickly with antibiotics.
The numbness in my arms is still there.... I imagine it has sometime to do with peripheral nerve damage, however.
I suppose there is the possibility of Lyme disease (recently in Central Europe), either that or it's a neurological reaction to strep. Who knows?
I've read extensive research on CFS being caused by unresolved bacterial/viral infections. I'm curious as to whether many people with CFS would respond to antibiotics/anti-herpes drugs (for EBV, CMV, HV6). Or even if CFS is caused by undiagnosed Lyme disease?
