I have EBV and HHV6. I went to the LLMD for the first time on Friday. It was hard for her to draw defininte conclusions based on the fact that all I had was basic bloodwork with me, as well as Quest Lyme test showing two bands. She obviously did a full workup but it isn't back yet. Hopefully she'll know the whole picture in a week or so and we'll have more to go on. She was trying to explain to me (if I understood it correctly) that EBV and HHV6 can play off Lyme and vice versa and you can't just treat Lyme when you have those also going on, you have to kill off everything at once. She said my EBV and HHV6 numbers have skyrocketed over the past year. The way I understood it (and I could be very wrong with my interpretation) is that the Lyme plays off of the EBV/HHV6 and thrives when that is present. I tried taking Vatrex back in January and remember feeling crummy on it. They switched me to Amantadine. This new doctor (LLMD, now I am pursuing Lyme) feels that Amantadine does not attack EBV or HHV6 and I need to be on Valtrex to kill those viruses off. So today is day two of Valtrex and I am so sick. I've barely moved off of the couch, my stomach hurts and I have a cap-like headache. I remember feeling more tired on Valtrex and the cap-like headache in January when I took it. I know this isn't just a twist in the Lyme because before this medicine I was getting up and dressed everyday and doing a little bit each day. I was never laying on the couch, especially not sleeping on/off. That is all I have done all weekend. Will my body adjust to the Valtrex or is this just the way it is? Thank you.
