I was in a flare since the middle of august. I have CFS or CFIDS and hepatitis C (the hepatitis C is not active, just chronic, my liver is healthy). This was the longest I have ever been down since 6 yrs ago. I was comtemplating disability. I even had new symptoms, painful muscles and joints, pain in my back, neck. I couldnt even walk down the street without being in terrible pain. Motrin wasnt even taking the edge off. My doctor put me on strong antioxidants, herbal antivirals, and IV vitamin C treatments. I was better in a week! I have been going to the gym this week and working out. I am so happy! Just wanted to share.
