Looking for help. I am 39 (almost 40 :p) and had a diagnosis of Mono in Dec 2013. I assumed that was my primary infection as I have never been that sick in my life! In Dec 2015 i became ill with the same exact symptoms. My PCP thought i had a reactivation of the EBV and sent for lab work. Results were as follows:
EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab, Igg >600.0 (0.0-17.9)
EBV Ab Vca, Igg >600.0 (0.0-17.9)
EBV Early Antigen Abm Igg 25.4 (0.0-8.9)
EBV Ab Vca, Ign 44.4 (0.0-35.9)
I was told this was a reactivation. Rest, fluids ect. My PCP never physically examined me or ordered any followup labs.
3 weeks ago I got what I thought was the flu. I was the only person in my household that got sick. Ended up in Urgent Care this week with fatigue , horrible aches and chills. All blood work was negative, normal CBC, Comp. No signs/symtpoms of sinus infection, pneumonia ect. Flu swab was negative. I called my PCP and the said EBV again.
Results came back today and I was told mono again. I am very concerned. 3x in 3 years?? I have been otherwise healthy. My PCP is not the least bit concerned. Thoughts? I should add I have a family hx of MS, Thyroid issues (all my labs are always normal, did have a bx of nodule though)
I have felt like crap off an on for 3 years. I am beginning to think I am crazy. Heart palps, high blood pressure for no reason, major alcohol intolerance (i get violently ill with 1 drink)
Results this time were almost identical. All were positive again.
Thinking of going to ID or Rheum.
