Hmmm, I had actue EBV/Mono 3 years ago. Hospitalized. Spleen and liver infected severely - haven't been the same since. Get pain in that upper right quadrent of abdomen just below the rib cage - sometimes burning, sometimes muscle spasm type pain. It 'acts' up....at times it hurts if I have to urinate, yet they say my kidneys seem fime, just my liver is having problems. Doctors are stumped.....
So, keep up the search and find answers. Acute EBV is nothing to scoff at and it takes a long time to recover from, longer when you have complications (like organ involvement.) Fever, achy joints, prone to additional infections could be a result of being sick and lower resistance to fight them off.
Have your health problems started/or complicated after having your mono 3 years ago ?
I know EBV is very common infection and the virus remains present and suppressed by your immunity for lifetime in your body after the initial contamination.I heard that immune-suppressive therapy may reactivate EBV and cause mono like symptoms again. Was this your case? However, I am not on any immuno-suppresives and never been. But for me seems that 2 years ago had been my first EBV infection in my life;( Like I'd been living in incubator;)), but it's not true because I'd even served in the army for year;(
