I have cfids/fibro and lyme (chronic). I have almost constantly swollen lymph glands and now I cannot get rid of herpes that affects my tongue and mouth. I cannot take anymore antibx after 3+ years of IVs/orals and intense allergies to molds and foods. I wonder if anyone else has problems with herpes and is there anything besides lysine that might help? I am so sleepy all the time on valtrex. I am waiting to get back on IV gamma globulin soon as I have severe deficiency since becoming ill 7 years ago. Also I was bitten by a spider a little over a week ago with 2 bite marks on my leg and it was blue, hard and swollen..now I'm wondering if spiders can carry some form of infectious disease or if it might have been another tick bite.
