The Pridgen Protocol: A Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Resource Center

Herpes simplex virus protocol threatens to upend understanding and treatment of Fibromyalgia

  1. Cort
    Dr. Skip Pridgen, a surgeon in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, believes that a herpes simplex virus - 1 (HSV-1) infection that affects the nerves across the body is causing fibromyalgia (FM) and chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).

    Pridgen created a novel treatment protocol that targeting HSV-1 using an antiviral (Famvir), a anti-inflammatory (Celebrex) and, at times, an antidepressant. He mustered the finances for a successful Phase II trial and has the go-ahead from the FDA for a phase III trial once the finances are secured. That trial will hopefully begin in 2018.

    I so very much appreciate Cort reporting in such detail about the Pridgen Protocol. If I hadn't seen these blogs, I may not have even heard of it.
