Seeing Dr John Chia in early November, What Questions Should I Ask?

Dr Chia has mentioned that he treats some patients successfully with Valacyclovir when the suspected cause of the CFS is VZV.

For those patients, could amenamevir (recently approved in Japan) provide additional benefits compared to Valacyclovir or Famciclovir? Does he plan to use/try amenamevir for VZV-suspected CFS?

Threat about amenamevir is here:

How long did you have to wait for an appointment with D.r Chia? It was suggested that I see him.
