For those who don’t know I have been suffering from CFS for a little over 14 months now. I have had 3 colds/ flu’s (including onset) since I have gotten sick. Flu # 1 was at the beginning of January 2002 and was the onset of CFS which took 2 weeks to get rid of. Flu # 2 was 1 month later (beginning of Feb.) and lasted 1 and a half weeks. It was a bit more severe (fever of 103 F). Cold # 3 was at the beginning of January 2003 and was nothing more than a sore throat, runny nose, and sneezing. Nothing too major and it only lasted about 8 or 9 days. Also, I tried amantadine 100mg capsules once a day for 1 week, then Upped it to twice daily for a second week, with no improvement whatsoever. Taking into account that I had no problem conquering colds/ flu’s( knock on wood) and amantadine did not help, wouldn’t it seem that I have a fairly healthy/ strong immune system, despite the fact that I have CFS (fatigue, fog, poor concentration). Please post you opinions. I would greatly appreciate it!!! Thanx People!
