    I recently contracted a really bad dose of gastro for 5 days. On the sixth I woke up feeling cured and have been feeling great for a week. I have no symptoms at all and feel like my old self. It feels like a miracle, and I only hope it lasts. Any ideas anybody ?, G

    As a student mentor I was involved with several ME and CFS cases at the local university. One young man, who had become ill following EBV, struggled on with his studies but was clearly still very unwell with limited physical and mental stamina.

    Then he went down with shingles and we became concerned because this can make ME and CFS patients worse for some time. He took his anti virals, recovered from shingles, and went into remission.

    We felt at the time this virus triggered a good immmune response and then afterwards it returned to normal. In these DDs parts of our immune systems can stay switched on.

    So yes this can happen.
