Saw my doctor today and couldn't leave the office without asking her what she thought about the XMRV retrovirus. She handed me a copy of the NIH News on the discovery and told me that she thought it would be either the cause of CFS or a strong link. She said either way it didn't matter as there would be treatment for us. She also treats HIV and said there are many antivirals used for HIV that could also be used for CFS. She felt the research was very strong and that as soon as the test is available to the public they will start testing for XMRV in her office. I told her I would be the first one in line. On another note, I have not been feeling good and have alot of numbness, fever, pain, rashes and skin very hot to the touch. She said my tests show that my EBV is still active and not improving so she is putting me on an injection of "Glycyron plus" to be given weekly along with my glutithione/ATP injection. It is described as Glycyrrhizin-a potent anti-viral and immune builder. In addition, they have cysteine, an immune builder and are also useful in detoxification. They also have L-Glycine, a crucial amino acid in cellular health. These are useful in patients with CFS and Fibro, auto-immune problems and chronic infections. I am excited about trying this but not happy about another needle. I will put a post up in the antiviral section to see if anyone else has tried this. I am so happy my doc will be testing people for XMRV and I don't have to figure out how to get tested.
