well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, BUT, you may be in for a long ride......I was infected a year ago (Aug 12, 2007) and I am STILL having the sore throat, painful joints and muscle tissues, frequent headaches and of course, INSOMNIA!!!I was diagnosed and of course, I always said I would get better and get back to work as a mail carrier for the US Postal Service. Well, I have filed for disability from Social Security, as I can no longer do my job (extreme fatigue) and at least once a week I sleep for 12-13 hours a night (after an afternoon nap), so my body has become somewhat unpredictable. I take vicodin (or oxycodone if the vicodin stops working) for extreme pain-I was told that I have fibromyalgia and that the virus from the WNV caused the fibromyalgia-something about the virus and the immune system, etc etc.-I wish you the best of luck-some people still have issues after years of WNV-
