    The fact that I contracted chicken pox 3 TIMES! as a child, definitely has me scratching my head.
    I contracted the measles as well(once)..
    I also have higher levels of Epstein Barr Virus without any recollection of mono.
    Anyone else have chickenpox multiple times?

    My brother had chicken pox twice, not myself though.

    I did have the flu shot after 2000, would go home and crash all night long, 12 hours of sleep or so, and also had treatment for my acne via accutane. Wonder if these things somehow contributed to me getting CFIDS?

    My ME may be post measles, so I will have to look into this further. However there is no as yet identified evidence in me of focal or multifocal brain lesions.

    Oh, I almost forgot,

    I had Scabies as well or was the incredibly "itching rash" which was all over my body actually Lyme?
