You may want to check the list of symptoms on the very top of my webpage HERE
. Do you have these same symptoms?
I was hit with these symptoms after contracting a nasty respiratory virus — a virus that was diagnosed from its symptoms as very likely to be an enterovirus
(enteroviruses are very strongly linked to ME/CFS).
I noticed you said that your infection spread to the mucous membranes of the rectum via saliva on your finger, when you made contact with your rectum.
Well, a very similar thing happen to me with my virus: I already had the chronic sore throat (= a chronic mucous membrane infection) caused by my virus for two years or so, when I happened to touch the urethral opening at the end of my penis, while there was some saliva on my finger. Well, within 24 hours, all the mucous membranes of my urethral tube suddenly became infected and inflamed, and even now, many years later, they are still inflamed, albeit now mildly. I had my virus for over two years in the mucous membranes of my mouth, throat, sinuses, stomach, intestines, but then as soon as some of my saliva landed on the mucous membranes of my urethra, wham, the infection was instantly transferred to the urethra.
So my virus seems to have very strong affinity for infecting the mucous membranes of the body. I make sure now that I never touch my eyes or rectum with saliva on my fingers.
Quite a few people who caught my virus also developed IBS.
You say your daughter is starting to lose her spark: well, the virus I caught seems to affect the mind quite strongly in some people, and many suffer from emotional flatness and anhedonia after they catch this virus, and then become people who have lost their sparkle.
So.... might you and your family have this virus?
