HI all, I am new to this message board and have read some of the replies and it does ease my mind to know that there is 'this place" to come to find things out. I have had symptoms of EBV which never subsided and have been tested for everything from MS, to Lupus, to cancer and finally referred for possible psychiatric treatment. I then was lucky enough to have a caring and attentive primary MD who referred me to a CFS specialist who has diagnosed me with CFS and is still testing for Lyme disease. this has been going on for 2 years of my life. I am highly sensitive to any type of medication (even aspirin) so have chosen to try a more holistic route for helping my symptoms. my biggest problems have been with 'brain fog', forgetfulness and short term memory problems. That truly drives me nuts. i have tried Lexapro and another medication (used for narcelepsy, but was seemingly helping others with CFS) and couldn't handle either of them -- as i said, i am highly sensitive to medications--so now i have consulted a herbalist and have been taking wheatgrass juice daily in addition to my stringent vitamin, herb and supplemental diet. It has helped but I am still at a loss over my 'brain-effects'. Does anyone out there have a similar story or can tell me of any non-perscription solutions to the memory problems??? I cannot have St. John's Wort or similar type stuff as it reacts to me as well (highly sensitive). If it helps anyone-- I have a juicer and about 40-50% of my diet includes natural juices and the wheatgrass juice. this has given me more energy at times and i feel has helped me, I also take EFAs in addition and I can last through the day without too much fatigue. I am still tired all the time but not nearly as bad as i once was.
