    Yes, a period of mega off the charts stress, and the Hep B vaccine. I recognized illness onset after the second jab with the Hep B, but didn't put it together...after the third jab I was down for the count. I had no acute infections at the time of onset. From here it was a gradual progressive slide with severity. I went from mild-moderate-severe over the next 10 years. I have done many up's and down's, but never a full remission.

    Wait, did he say frequency? That sounds like he believes that XMRV is a real virus and potentially widespread.

    Maybe we are reading too much into this, but it does seem like he at least believes the virus exists.

    Hi everyone, this virus has been sequenced, cloned, replicated and transmitted to animals. It exists, there is no doubt. That understanding does not commit him to find it in CFS however, though I think he will. Bye, Alex

    Dr Shepherd at the ME Association in the UK has said that even UK Virologists believe that XMRV exists - they really want to study it.

    The questions they do have however are: 1. does it actually cause disease in humans? or more specifically from our point of view, 2. does it cause ME/CFS?
