I was dxed with Chronic/Acute EBV back in 1988(?). At the time, I was told that my levels of the EBV would not allow me to continue to work. Since I was a single mother of two at the time, that just couldn't be!
I did a lot of research reading- back then it was through libraries!!- and discovered that 99 % of the U.S. population carries this virus. Just a large majority of them never become symptomatic.
From what I have read on any connection to LD, is that when a person has a chronic viral issue, the body is much more likely to contract something like LD, or at least at that point, become symptomatic. I think it can work the other way around as well -
if one has LD (even if you are not symptomatic), then that person has a much higher chance of becoming symptomatic with viral infections.
It's all about
the stress load on our bodies.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
