I have been doing very well lately on my lyme Abx regime. So well that i did 5 hours work in a friend's garden. Unfortunately i crashed for the next two days and then developed a virus that lasted for a week. Now two weeks later i still haven't recovered my pre-virus level of health. I feel as poor as i did 12 months ago. My energy is poor again, my cognition is el crappo and i'm even getting some POTs -like dizziness back.. Does this happens to others? Maybe the timing of my PEM with virus was a fluke? Would this be a good time to get HSV-1 or HHV-6 antibodies checked to see if these have been activated? (At the same time i got a whitlow infection in my finger which i have heard can develop from HSV-1 or HSV-2). Could IgG, IgM testing possibly indicate which of these is a factor in my four years of illness? I'm not keen to hit my body with yet another illness concept and the accompanying poison, but like everyone else i keep searching, searching to beat this plague.
