I was diagnosed in 2001 with fybromyalgia. I then had Coxsackie virus too. I had 2 seizures the past 36 months, and 18 months ago they have picked up the Ebstein Barr virus, Salmonella and Well felix.

I have severe joint pains, abdominal swelling, and total fatigue. Every second month I am in hospital for cortison, polygam, and antibiotics.

Every time we do bloodtest I accumulate virusses. My glands are swollen, (armpits, neck etc.)

I currently have the Ebstein barr virus, cytomegalo virus, chlamyda pneumonia and mycoplasma virusses active.

Please advise

  • Have they tested you for Lyme Disease and all the co infections like Babesiosis,Ehrlichiosis, Borrillia, Bartonella and more.The Westeren Blot test is abt the best test for this. Cortizone may have weaked your immume system more, thus allowing the bacteria to multiply. Are treating the mycoplasma virus, with strong Abx? Here is a good site to look into lymenet.org theres lots of info and helpful people. Hope you can feel better soon. ~~Jersey Lymie

  • "Inherited Immunodeficiencies: Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID)Alternative Names: CVIDDefinitionCommon variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is an immune system disorder which typically affects males and females in the third or fourth decade of life. However, it may also be seen in children. It is characterized by low levels of antibodies (another name for immunoglobulins) in the blood stream and an increased susceptibility to infections.The diagnosis of common variable immunodeficiency is suspected when the patient has low levels of antibodies in the blood stream, a poor immune response to vaccines, and a history of recurrent infections. Patients with CVID develop recurrent infections of the sinuses, ears, nose and lungs. They may also develop enlarged lymph nodes (palpable glands in the neck and groin) or an enlarged spleen. Infections of the gastrointestinal tract may also occur. Individuals with CVID have an increased incidence of malignant lymphomas and autoimmune disorders such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and autoimmune hemolytic anemia.Influencing FactorsPattern of InheritanceGenetic factors do play a part in the development of common variable immunodeficiency. However, there is no single gene mutation (mistake) that can be identified. Environmental factors may also influence the development of CVID.Treatment StrategiesTreatment for common variable immunodeficiency includes monthly infusions of gammaglobulin (IVIG) and oral antibiotics to prevent infections. Prognosis is variable and may depend on the severity of lung disease prior to diagnosis and the occurrence of autoimmune disease or malignancy. Patients are encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle, which includes good nutrition and regular exercise. " Hope this helps.
