Chronic Fatigue research by Dr. Lerner

Recommended Posts

Here are some links to information about the research done by Dr. A. Martin Lerner on chronic fatigue as possibly caused by viruses resulting in heart damage.





I am interested in getting thoughts, reactions, or more knowledge on this topic from posters here. Also, please post if you have been Dr. Lerner's patient

I think it is definitely very interesting. My mother was diagnosed 13 years ago at the age of 57 with chronic fatigue syndrome after being very ill with strep and mono (and tested positive for EBV, etc.) that she had a very hard time recovering from even with multiple antibiotics, etc. Of course back then, worse than now, it was such a new thing and so much more poorly misunderstood that she was definitely mistreated as a patient. She did find a counselor who helped her understand her diagnosis (because the counselor suffered from it herself and had done a lot of research on it) but mostly unfortunately, she was treated by the medical community mostly like a mental patient and like it was depression and anxiety. I think the research and links were interesting and thanks for posting them.

Here's another link I saw on Lerner ....


But the research is from a few years back. The most recent study I see is in 2002. Here's the link on MedLine:


"This study was designed to determine safety and efficacy of a 6-month trial of valacyclovir in single-virus Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) persistent infection."

Something worth noting since I always test positive for EBV. I'll follow up with my cardiologist.
