Sometimes I notice that my mood and brain functioning seem elevated, improved in certain ways when I am at a certain point of getting or having a cold or other viral outbreak. If I take an antiviral like amantadine or valtrex my brain functioning and mood plummet and from the V I get more neuro pain. I have sjogrens autoimmune diagnosis. If I could capture that certain point of elevated viral titers and harness it I think I would be a happy camper, certainly not cured during that point but just like how I feel more engaged with life. any others notice this or any theories on why this might be?
