    Many thanks justin - gosh how it all ties up - encephalitis, cardio problems, post polio type problems all part of my own grizzly picture. And also never doubted ME was viral from onset 11 years ago.

    How about that. Dr. Lassner in Germany is looking at cardioviruses and CFS and, of course. Dr. Chia has found enteroviruses in spades.

    It is likely that all forms of encephalitis, and probably meningitis as well, can induce ME, or a different disease with very similar symptoms. Lipkin has proposed that there is a subclass he calls Atypical ME in which there is a stable cytokine profile and this includes encephalitis survivors.
