My doctor just started my on HIV meds (Descovy, to be exact) for my CFS. It has only been 6 days, no change yet, but I will be sure to post about it if I see any benefit or decline from this treatment.
Interesting. Actually, my CFS literate doctor is prescribing the Descovy on the basis that it acts against HERV's (human endogenous retroviruses). He believes that HERV's could be responsible for my CFS.
I just had an appointment with my doctor yesterday and he too would like to try me on Descovy on the basis that EBV (and cytokines) can activate HERVs, specifically HERV-W. I suspect we have the same doctor.
I was going to post a summary of my doctors appointment, but it seems, by searching PR, that there's a lot of info on retroviruses and CFS.
