Hello @imsaed, I would like to add my welcome to Connect along with @lacy2 and others. From what I've read, post viral syndrome refers to a sense of tiredness and weakness that lingers after a person has fought off a viral infection. It can arise even after common infections, such as the flu. Is this what you were diagnosed with at Mayo?

Thank you John, I was never overly fatigued but did have some pneumonia in the bottom of my left lung which resolved pretty quickly once identified and treated with a “Z-pack”. Mayo diagnosed with PVS as a catch all if they can’t figure it out. The neurologist were all less than useful, disappointing for Mayo. Just gave me benzodiazepines and sent me home. Post viral neuropathy makes a lot more sense. Thank you for sharing and will keep reading threads here. God bless you all.
