    Ok about 7 years ago my life changed. I starting having gastro(stomach problems), I developed severe anxiety, fatigue,brain fog and just did not feel like myself at all. I had just about evey test possible and everything has always come back fine. But then my HHV IGg came back 1:1280. The hematologist actually said that was extremely high but there was nothing that could be done.

    I got one doctor to give me Valcyte but after reading about the potential some effects decided not to take it. I now have fan ire and am deciding whether or not to take it. I'm sure having titers this high has to be doing something to my body. My biggest problem impacting my life is anxiety, cognition and gastro problems. Could these titers could this? Thanks

    I wouldn't hesitate to take the meds. Right now I have a reaction to all antivirals so I can't take any but I wouldn't hesitate, especially Famvir (is that what you meant?)

    You have to weigh how bad you feel, with how they can help you.

    A lot of people get relief from your top 3 symptoms by eliminating their food intolerances. Common intolerances are gluten dairy corn soy and chemicals but you can have others or multiple.

    Digestive enzymes may help too. Or probiotics.

    Imho the paleo diet, cordain or wahls version is the best option for eliminating the most common triggers. I'd make the change at a slow but steady pace. No need to stress out about it. :)

    Hi there. If this was in response to my comment, I just wanted to be clear that I was referring to making a diet change not your anxiety. Diet changes can be overwhelming. Been there. Done that.

    Theanine is good for anxiety. Hope you get this worked out. Tc .. x
