Re: Mono / Ebv for the second time -really bad! Anyone else have it more than once?

DW had all but the CMV ... she had fibromyalgia ... went on an expen$ive antiviral she had to order from India to keep the number of dollar signs in an affordable price range.

It was called famciclovir (brand name Virovir).

I had a "mono mimic" in the early '80s before a whole lot of viruses could be directly tested for. Probably HHV6. Was sick for years ... night sweats and what-have-you.

Doctors who are known to understand and help with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia would be the ones to see ... maybe "Lyme literate" doctors as a second choice ... problem could be rickettsial. Or it could be a million other things.

Maybe you can find someone who can test with the Greenechip.

Don't give up until you get relief.

I believe there is a doctor Teitelbaum who has books about chronic fatigue, etc that may be helpful.
