Maybe Dr. Lerner was right in saying that Valtrex needs to be taken 4x/day for maximum effect?
Did your ME/CFS improve in any way after taking Valtrex for your shingles? Or did this antiviral have no effect on ME/CFS symptoms?
I imagine there must be some cases where ME/CFS patients get shingles, but this VZV reactivation does not play a part in their ME/CFS. So the antivirals may help the shingles, but do not improve the ME/CFS.
But we know there are also cases like the ones Dr Chia detects, where VZV reactivation is causing both shingles and apparently also causing ME/CFS. In these cases the antivirals improve both conditions.
