CFS Heads Up

Here's something I found out the hard way; people with chronic Epstein-Barr virus, like many who have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, are much more likely than other people are to have allergic reactions to amoxicillin and related drugs.
Yes, I know the new studies show the disease may be caused by a retrovirus, but that doesn't change the fact that most people with CFIDS have or had one of the viruses known to cross the blood-brain barrier, and Epstein-Barr is one of them.
