I am a 37 yo male. 4 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with viral encephalitis. I have had episodes every several months where I am extremely fatigued, weak, emotional, joints hurt, gout, etc... I am sometimes in the bed or the house for days at a time and cannot shake it. I was diagnosed last year with chronic fatigue or post viral syndrome. I recently had an episode that lasted for several months. My nurse practicioner started me on mobic a few days ago and for the first time in months I saw marked improvement in every area...emotions, energy, joint pain and all. I cannot figure out the connection between the mobic and the improvement in symptoms other than the joint pain. Any ideas?
