Shingles or Not?

Posted by Rhonda on January 10, 2017 at 10:04am 5 Comments

Have had what I thought was shingles for the past week.  After a week of the skin sensations such as tingling, shooting pain from my right shoulder blade around to right front chest area I went to the doctor.  Told him I thought I had shingles.  He looked at the very small and few breakouts and he said he didn't think so. I explained that I was taking 800mg a day of Acyclovir suppressant therapy for MM and maybe I just didn't break out in a big way or it was still early.  He said this is not…

Hi All,

I'm from Melbourne Australia and I'm a 42 year old female. Two years ago I had my first bout of what I thought was a really bad flu, which I couldn't get out of bed for a few weeks.

Living with Mollaret's for 28 years

I have been suffering from Mollaret’s Syndrome for twenty-eight years.  My first episode appeared three months after giving birth to my daughter.  I have been hospitalized so many times over the years that I have lost count.  Luckily, the last two times I became ill this year, I was able to manage the pain at home.

It has been a journey.  I went to the Mayo Clinic in 1992, and no one there was able to diagnose what I had.  It wasn’t until 2004 that it was diagnosed in Des Moines, Iowa…


An MM doc in my small town!!

Posted by Catherine Reynolds on August 17, 2016 at 8:39am 1 Comment

Attention all members near NC: an Infectious Diseases doctor recently moved from Winston-Salem to Salisbury (about 45 min north of Charlotte). He has and has had MM patients. He understood and believed everything I told him about my experiences since 1990. He was so nice, thorough, patient and he made me feel so relieved and vindicated for all those years of "you don't have HSV meningo-encephalitis, you'd be dead" - that from the late Dr. STephen Strauss, HSV guru at NIH, 1992. Years of being… Continue
