Anyone heard of post virus syndrome?

  1. Mar 22, 2009 #1
    Just wondering if anyone has heard of or has experienced what is sometimes called "Post Virus (or Post Viral) Syndrome"?
    From the descriptions I've read, it seems I may have a milder case and I'm wondering if anyone can relate to this. Both my family doc and a neurologist say the muscle pain and minor twitches are likely due to the after effects of a mild virus I had, which initially caused dizziness by allowing fluid to build up behind my eardrum.
    Most of the other reports of it I've read are much more severe than my case. Most of those people report having a flu shot a few weeks before the onset (I did not).
    Has anyone heard of it?
