    I'm due to start a 6 day daily IV course of Ganciclovir on Monday. I wondered if anyone else has had it and how you've got on?

    I've had a major flare up, with painful glands everywhere, extremely exhausted, migraines, night sweats and hot flushes. I've previously (years ago) tested with High EBV, but have not had a viral panel done since this flare (trying to save money and put any funds toward treatment.). The 6 days of IV ganciclovir will be followed by oral Valtrex.

    I also have previously tested positive for Lyme, Ehrlichia and probable Bartonella. Not yet treated as I react badly to antibiotics and wanted my system as strong as it could be before I did (had been getting on very well prior to this bad flare.)

    Any thoughts/ feedback would be very much appreciated :eek:)

    Have you actually heard of anyone getting any better using this treatment? I hear of so many people trying different treatments, however, I don't hear of too many people actually ever getting better. Just something to think about.
