    I would appreciate any prayers regarding my treatment with the Famvir. It has put me into complete remission in the past and I am back on it. So far, I am really Herxing a lot but am hopeful that when the Herxing is over, I will once again go into remission. I need to get back to work.

    Thanks to everyone.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi Mikie, I hope this medicaton will work for you again, we all need something to look forward to with these diseases that get us down so much. Prayers going up for you to our Great Physician, who without Him, we cannot do anything...

    In Christ

    Don't have a clue what this famvir is, but prayers already out and up and sideways. Hope it works. It's so weird how some days the pain isn't bad, then others it's excrutiating. Sometimes I feel like we're getting zapped. Good luck with this. Jo Ellen

    I don't have shingles or genital Herpes. I do get a cold sore every once in a blue moon. We found out by accident that I have some kind of Herpes-family virus reactivation because when I was given Famvir preventively for facial surgery, I had a big Herx effect and then went into a complete remission until I quit the drug. My specialist suspects EBV reactivation, but other possibilities are CMV or HHV6. I don't really care what it is if I can get it under control. So far, I am still feeling lousy and Herxing, thus the request for prayer.

    Thank you everyone for your kindness and prayers.

    Love, Mikie

    Dear Mikie,

    I am not familiar with the medication you are talking about or with what Herxing means. But I do know that a call for prayer is a call in need. You have my prayers. May God strengthen you and restore you. You have been a comfort to so many others, May the Lord comfort you now in your time of need.

    Herxing is just what happens when you kill off a lot of pathogens in the body. It makes you sick until they are all excreted. This can be a short time or longer depending on the pathogen and the health of the immune system.

    Thanks so much for your prayers.

    Love, Mikie
