I started the Valtrex-FFC protocal for my EBV. I noticed I got sick with a cold a week later then got better only to get sick with a slight cold but bad sore throat a week following. My sore throat seems to be good one day then bad the next. The sides are killing me the worst though. I don't know if I might be allergic to the valtrex, ir I am hexing or if I should go to my dr. b/c the sore throat won't go away. I know he will give me an antibiotic. I guess for those of you that have gone through this how do you know if you are hexing or just sick? I can stick it out if I am hexing. I just don't want to miss anything and my dr. will just put me on a drug. I don't have a fever, stuffed nose or decreased energy level.
