Nobody knows. But it's clear there's more than one. I find it odd that I had such a good reaction to taking high dose thiamine. As it has no effect on the immune system and I've never had good reactions to anti virals that a metabolic issue might make sense. As I struggled with energy production even as a teenager. I was always the kid who tired easily and felt sleepy a lot.
One theory of my Getting Way Worse...a series of gastro events that seemed in- explicable in 2018. I went from mild to moderately bad- over a few months- post severe stress and two bouts of: near death "stomach flu" that- maybe is no the flu. Or maybe a new virus, not Eppstein-snuck in. I seem to think I'm carrying something that can flare.
But reading that NO3 could have gotten real high during one or both of these events, that could have created a form of: further trapped.
So this trap- well keep working on that theory please, as I think there could really be something to it.
Maybe my decades of mild, I was slightly trapped, or intermittently trapped and then- Ok again. But now: there seems to be NO Ok Again.
I do wonder how Joshua's herpesveredie paper compares or incorporates metabolic trap into its hypothesis as it's very much mitochondria centric. Which is why I think it might only be one subset. With metabolic trap being another subset.
