    The ginko helped somewhat with the fog, maybe a 3. But I'm in a relapse right now, so neither seems to be helping right now. Definately worth a try. God Bless.

    Tried Ginko, but had to discontinue due to hypertension. It also made me very anxious.
    B12 Injections immediately made me feel better... a 4 or 5, when I initially started to use. Now after weeks of use, I would say a 3. I am going for another Drs. appt. Tuesday, and will ask about introducing B complex injections, too. I am thinking this may help---a boost of sorts.

    I started taking gingko two years ago when I read that it can help dizziness (which was my main symptom of CFS at that time). I had to stop taking it for a week prior to balance testing and the dizzies came back with a vengeance - so I know it works for me and just keep on with it.
    A word of advice though - if you are going to take it, buy it from an online pharmacy...you can get much higher concentrations for MUCH cheaper than in a high street chemists. (I am UK though - if you are USA I don't know...) but still worth doing a price check.
    Good luck - hope it helps you too,
    hugs
