    I wonder if that is a safe drug that could be easily trialled on ME patients.

    aids has many similarities with me/cfs, which i think most folk know. when i first got ill my doctor insisted that i have an hiv test due to a loss in weight. i knew it would be clear but the nurse said that i should bring a friend when i returned as what she saw in my mouth was exactly the same as she saw in hiv+ and chemo patients. a nurse understood my illness better than most doctors.

    there has been at least one documented recovery from hiv+ i read of a few years ago. ive always felt that it can be cured, in a similar way to me/cfs, by mending the gut wall. meds, though, can't cure chronic conditions imo.
