ME patients have chronic viral infections that suppress immunity and high cytokines to start. So if someone doesn't do the nutrition the reaction to the 2nd vaccine could kill them. This is what happens to frail old people.
There are a lot of people on PR that are getting covid vaccines. It will be interesting to see how they do. I would hold off unless someone is 60+ or is around a lot of covid. ME patients could get into a lot of trouble here. The risk to benefit is against it.
You, like so many misunderstand what causes CFS and it is not linked to viruses! Viruses do not suppress immunity it is the underlying cause which suppresses immunity and alters the immune response which can result in virus activation. Cytokines are often abnormal but no tests have shown consistent results. Inflammation is present but that is also not the cause although it does contribute to the energy problems.
Everyone missed that research, the cause is a pathogenic infection of the digestive system! I have known this since January 2014 and right to the point of infection which is considerably closer than the very broad "guess" that the researcher documented.
I'm not getting the vaccine. I'm 43 and not in any high risk groups for deadly covid reactions such as obesity or breathing disorders. My view on it is that they can't even diagnose what is wrong with me, so they don't know how what is wrong with me interacts with this vaccine.
You are at high risk simply by the fact that you have an inflammatory disease! You will have low levels of antioxidant Glutathione seeing as all your glutathione goes towards detoxification. The human body has priorities, the biggest of which is detox and elimination. Your elimination is probably being restricted by the all too common constipation which is one symptom of the low availability of nutrients (acetylcholine) in CFS. Choline is also used for liver detox.
I have had COVID-19 twice, 3 months apart the first time a doctor wanted to send an ambulance because of the breathing problems that I was experiencing. I refused the ambulance and treated it with herbs that I had purchased in preparation as documented in Stephen Harrod Buhner's free COVID-19 pdf's . After starting them my breathing problems quickly disappeared. I have never had any problems with breathing and never suffered with Asthma. The lungs are quickly damaged if it is allowed to progress and if you get into that situation it can get extremely dangerous. I would never go into hospital for COVID-19 because the outcome is so frequently poor and no one can use herbs while in hospital. The 2nd time I had less symptoms but they were broadly similar with some but significantly reduced chest discomfort. The first time I had discomfort which moved around my chest whereas the 2nd time it was more minor but recognisable after the first occurrence of COVID-19.
Therefore do not be sure that you do not need it or something to protect you. I have not had the vaccine despite being offered it.
