Another bonus from the surgery was the Famvir I had to take to prevent a cold sore before, during, or just after the surgery. I started Herxing yesterday and am Herxing big time today. This is lasting longer than the Doxy Herx and instead of the burning in my torso like with the Doxy, I am chilling in the torso. I do not believe this is a Doxy Herx because of this difference and the duration. I've been on the Doxy so long that I no longer have such massive killoffs and, therefore, the Herxes last 24 hours, max. This is the second day of the Herx and it has been quite severe. This is very important to me because I now believe I have been sick from a chronic Herpes-family virus. My current specialist does not treat chronic viral infections, but I plan to get him to change his mind or refer me to an infectious diseases specialist. I do not believe we can heal when there are chronic stealth infections in our bodies. Unfortunately, we are ripe for infections of opportunity. I just got back from having my sutures removed and the doc said everything looks good. In a week, I can do more strenuous exercises. I can now wear makeup to cover the bruising and redness from the laser. My biggest bonus, being in remission from both the FMS and CFIDS is still with me. I do not expect it will continue indefinitely unless I can find out about the virus and get treatment. Right now, except for the Herxing, it's like I've never been sick. YAHOOOOOOOOO!!!
