It may be that your body has some deficiency in adenosine (due to some 
genetic factor?), the precursor to adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP).  This 
would explain the effectiveness of taking adenisine orally (giving your 
body a source of the precursor) and the uneefectiveness of the other 
tried treatments (you cant accelerate ATP synthesis if there is no 

Just my 2 cents
