    Does anyone know if L. Salivarius is contraindicated in CFS? There's a poster here who's mentioned in a few threads that he believes L. Salivarius triggered a permanent worsening of his symptoms, though the probiotic he was taking contained severe L strains.

    I'm trying this at the moment: http://www.customprobiotics.com/d-lactate-free-probiotics.html

    It's only been one day and I feel awful -- far more fatigued than usual. I just hope I didn't waste $100 :-/

    The probiotic I linked is purportedly histamine-free/degrading. That doesn't answer my question about L. Salivarius, however ..

    MCAS is often co-morbid w CFS, so anything that causes increased histamine would be contra-indicated.

    It may be contra-indicated for other reasons, but the MCAS issue is all I've got
