    New symptom started since a week.

    If I sit for a while my feet and calves start paining real bad and kind of burning and calves get very rigid and tight.

    Anyone else experienced this ?

    Burning feet can be a symptom of pantothenic acid deficiency. Pantothenic acid is one of the B vitamins and is crucial for adrenal health. If you google "pantothenic acid burning feet" you can get more info.

    I did have a pantothenic acid deficiency several years ago. The bottoms of my feet felt like they were burning, and I only found out what was going when I happened to read about this in an old book by Adelle Davis (one of our first nutrition experts!)

    There are other causes but this is what helped me. I started taking extra pantothenic acid (500 or 1000 mg.) in addition to a good B vitamin complex.

    Lidoderm patches are anesthetic patches you can get from your doctor, made my life so much better.

    I developed neuropathy after many years with CFS. I finally was able to convince my doc to try me on long term antiviral treatment because my EBV antibody titres were very high - she prescribed valtrex. After several months on it I realized my neuropathy was gone. I'm sure there are many causes of neuropathy though so doubtful that will work for all burning feet issues. I don't know if I've ever known a doctor to prescribe an antiviral for neuropathy or for anyone to connect EBV or any viral condition to neuropathy but they might want to look into that.

    Very interesting point.

    An interesting thing happened. Before all this saga started my WBC count used to always be around 8000 and after this started it rose to 10,500 and stayed there for the past 2 years. The doctors here kept saying no its still within limit and there is nothing wrong and I was quite sure there is.

    Anna Manayan of Immune Matrix in USA was the only doctor who told me to get an EBV test done, which I did and which came out positive. Since the past 3 months I have been on Lauricidin , which is a natural antiviral made of monoaularin. Yesterday I got my blood tests done again and after 2 years the count has come down to 8,800 !!!! I am going to continue taking Lauricidin- It does many good things in imo.

    Katwiim, on what dose of Valtrex were you on and did you have to exercise any special precautions while on it ?

    Let us know how it goes with your friend. So many people on this board have adrenal issues, I think that pantothenic acid deficiency is more than likely quite widespread.
