So far all seems pretty good. I went for 2 mile runs twice this week. I came back feeling alrite and was not incapacitated by the runs. Not bad considering that it is the winter months that I usually have to stop all physical activities and hibernate if I want to avoid a relapse. So basically since November I have been improving and rather quickly. In many ways the improvements have been very noticeable. I have been able to do physical activities even before the valtrex or the valcyte. I credit this to my diet i put myself on. It was just that everytime I did excercise I would then be passed out on my bed for a few days. It was scary. This is the first time that I think that I am able to get some amount of fitness back. Some questions still bother me:- If, like i think, I have been recovering even before the Valcyte, why is it that only the highest dose of Valcyte works for me ? The lower doses did nothing. Same for Valtrex. Once I go off the Valcyte, what then ? A relapse ??? So this isnt even a recovery at all, just some bizzard cosmic joke of a temporary succor. And I'm the punch line. So not funny. I am also bothered by sneezes and a not-too-clear throat which I hope to put down to just winter blues and infections. Otherwise if I test neg for the ebv the next time round and if I am still sneezing, then there could probably be another virus or bug somewhere inside me. I was supposed to go for more tests for a whole bunch of viruses and bacteria but I put it off for awhile just becos I was so sick and tired of being stuck with needles and I wanted to see if ebv was it. I know the chances are pretty low given that anyone with cfs is probably coinfected with something else too.
