Minnesota, I hope you get better soon. Since your illness is viral there is hope for you. I have CFS & I have no virus's or bacterial infections, there is no treatment or cure. I don't know much about
the treatment for EBV but I know you can find remission with it.
With CFS, I know that pacing is so important & I am sure it is the same with EBV. Take life easier until you get some energy back & the fatigue is not so profound. I take B12 sublingual for energy, have you had you vitamin d checked? Low vit. D can contribute to fatigue, mine was low & I take 2000 iu's per day to get it to normal. How is your iron? Just make sure you have no underlying problems that can keep you down.
As I said earlier, I hope you can get back some, if not all of your energy. It is so hard to live with fatigue everyday but don't give up. We do have to understand that we are ill & so have limitations but talk to your Dr about treatments & do all you can to pace yourself & live within your energy envelope. I had to give up many of my activities & I have had to mourn all of them & find new things that I love to do. I have been sick since 2005 but I live with the hope of a cure. Recent research into CFS has opened up possibilities of treatment. Yeah!!!! Many gentle hugs, Denise
