If I remember rightly, moderators moved this publicly-viewable thread to a private members-only area as a precaution against attracting pharma spammers to the forum. But it sounds like you were able to make a use of the info on this thread even when you were a non-member. I will speak to the mods, and see what they feel about making it public again.
Sounds like antivirals allowed you to make a near full recovery. That's great! Have you written up your recovery story anywhere online? I'd love to link to it. I am collecting ME/CFS recovery and improvement stories in this thread. In that thread there are several stories of improvements and recoveries from various antivirals.
If you write up your story, you might like to indicate where you were before antiviral treatment on ME/CFS scale of: very severe, severe, moderate, mild, remission, and where you ended up afterwards (presumably remission).
Also, if you know from blood tests which viruses you had as active infections, that's interesting info too. The criteria that ME/CFS doctors use for diagnosing active infection is summarized in this mini ME/CFS roadmap.
I might write a comprehensive timeframe... I'm just so tired though....
All the s*** that happened to me.
I lost my house. All the years I was sick (most of 4 years).
Good news to a lot of folks out there is there are a lot of antivirals and medications that can help you.
Honestly, to all the folks out there, if EBV is the main cause of your problems stick to Zidovudine or
People with MS just have to take Zidovudine, and not even regularly likely for complete remission. People with Sjogren's syndrome https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/10515640/
I also have a hunch that people with rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, certain bowel diseases, and other auto immune diseases would experience remission.
People with breast cancer or glioblastomas could probably take celecoxib and valganciclovir and at least slow the two diseases significantly.
I got educated through all this and I discovered dutasteride. I have the hair I did when I was 17-18 again.
Here's me wishing everyone on here an eventual recovery.
