A Little Poisoning Along the Road to ME/CFS
Looking at my symptoms, many of which are far less these days and some are gone, it would be easy to figure that I'd just been dealing with some heavy-duty menopausal issues.
Discuss the article on the Forums.

Is it a new disease or its CFS ?

    In a website it was given,that chinese doctor found staph aures ,in lots of his patients having similar symptoms like omar... will try to post the link. Even I am trying to test for it . Meanwhile i tested for IgE ,and this antibody was elevated for me. And,omar what are your current symptoms ?? .I found out almost any virus/bugs can cause CFS...if body fails to gain immunity ,for that at onset people need to eat healthy....lots of fruits/green veg and no alcohol/nonveg...... I am from india,and my situation improved but not 100% ...... i would like to know about IgE test done by others and EBV, mycoplasma , and drug resistant staph aures.

    The Coagulase Negative toxin-producing Staph associated with CFS has been a topic of research at Newcastle Uni, Australia over many years. The trouble is you need a lab with a special interest in this bug as many will dismiss it, not noting it's significance.

    Am trying to be careful as much i can, i don't use any one stuff like glasses and other food equipment !

    I saw some symptoms on my dad like rashes on the chest and some tongue issue with mom and brother but i hope its from something else as they thankfully they don't have any problems up to now, i pray every day for that and i cant live with guilt !

    Other patients who were not that careful in my group infected their families but the symptoms are not the same with everyone !

    Send me your Skype on my Inbox and we can discuss much more

    Thats our main difference from CFS patients,their symptoms dont spread so easily. This virus/bacteriacan spread by casual contact . And i guess severity of symptoms depends on the amount of virus/bacteria.......but its transmission is very strong and lot of people getting it will think it as some irrelevant symptoms...... I also try to be carefull not to spread it,but nobody believes me.......i dont use skype...iam in facebook,twitter,Gmail.

    As per Han from china the following recurring symptoms found in almost all patients. I too have most of them.
    bad sore throat --yes, never can be healed, appeared very soon after infected
    nose problem--we don't have, so far as I know

    lung/chest pain--yes, appeared after 5-6 months
    stomach--desire to omit and lose apetite--appeared very soon after infected,but will disappear later
    intestines produced gas (flatulence), bowel rumbles and bowel bloating--yes, all the infected have this, but some of them will suffer continously, some not. appeared very soon after infected
    mental state changes --different people with different degree
    fatigue and sleepiness --all the infected experience this soon after being infected, some will recover, some will never
    pins and needles or skin crawling sensation--all the infected share this, they can be seen very obviously when exposed to sunshine or hot water. Will disappear as time goes on, but it will take a long time.
    loss of taste and smell--some yes, some no.
    my gums--all suffer this, but some may heal as time goes on
    tongue coating--all suffer this, almost cannot be removed forever
    vision began to deteriorate-some yes, some no
    parchment-like wrinkling of the skin -some yes, in serious case
    weak legs (and loose hips), and joint looseness--not obviously, but will face standing difficulty
    spasm in the muscles--some yes, some no
    immune system weakening-sure, the CD4 and CD8 indicates
    incubation period --soon will feel don't well, but three or five days later, real nightmare begins.

    aseptic (viral) meningitis--not really diagnosed
    alcohol tolerance becomes decreased--yes, very obvious
    a chronic, persistent and active infection--yes, biggest difference from HIV

    My answer is no even after few years. Everybody get some of the above recurring symptoms rest of their life. Most complicated is nerves damage related deceases. No body knows about long term complications . We might get Cancer/AIDS/CFS. Any way if I get some info I will definitely post here

    I can't say anything. It varies from person to person , the type of virus and co infection. Since how long you are infected? and your joints are making sound (crepitus)?

    Dear Omar, Overstreesed
    I believe I have the same pathogen as you and I like you have tested for many things but still unable to find the answer, after many research and thinking I know how we can identify this virus. When you were sick, this is called the acute phase of a viral infection where the blood is full of viral particles, ie the viremia phase.

    Testing for virus in chronic phase, ie after acute phase is very difficult because the amount of virus in the blood is low.

    Hence I would like to know if you had your blood freezed or taken for analysis during the time you were in acute phase? If we can get blood from someone who is newly infected who is in acute phase (freeze it with nitrogen) then its easy to identify the virus.

    Blood from acute phase need to be analysed using next generation sequencing. Thats how they were able to identify the new corona virus, and new sars virus very quickly. Before this technique, we needed years and decades to identify new pathogens, now it is quite easy.

    I would like to know who else besides you omar and overstressed would fit in the same category as having china like virus? I do not trust the china authorities, they cover up many problems like sars at the start.

    Let me know, I believe we can help each other.
