Hi @Fogbound, how you're doing now?

I've one of those people having it permanent. I'm not really a proponent of inflammation as cause. It seems to be more of the opposite. After taking immune pushing meds like interferons, it seems these symptoms ceased away.

And they don't come again as long some level of interferon is available.
