    I have also posted over at the MECFS Forums and I found the question asked about whether or not this could be a reactivation or reinfection was interesting, so I have added in some other citations for reference.

    Here is the link to the discussion on MECFS Forums http://www.mecfsforums.com/index.php/topic,18875.0.html
    and
    if you are not interested in linking directly to that thread. Here is what I wrote.

    I haven't studied HIV research, and I might be wrong about this, but I've heard that HIV hides in 'reservoirs' in the body (e.g. perhaps lymph tissue?) even when undetectable in the blood. I've heard that eradicating HIV from the reservoirs is the key to a cure. But my knowledge about this is superficial, at best, and I might be regurgitating nonsense.
