I have been feeling down and sick for almost 6 months now. Initially I was diagnosed with an active Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) infection. I was not 100% certain on how they interpret the tests for this virus but my doctor seemed to say that my tests implied a newly acquired EBV infection (which is somewhat rare apparently for someone who is 40 since over 95% of people have been exposed to EBV by that age I was told). I have felt feverish in my head and neck ever since this started but never have actually had a measurable high temperature. The feverish feeling diminished over time as did the swollen glands in the neck and under the arms.
I have read that EBV infection is called glandular fever in other countries and this seemed to be a perfect description for what I have experienced. I also heard that the symptoms can last 6 months or more.
Has anyone else had this sort of situation/symptoms? I'm just trying to see if anyone has any ideas for how to feel better. I have had numerous other tests run to eliminate other problems such as STDs and cancer but all they can find is EBV... :(
