Hi. I am new to forums as well as this hideous diagnosis of having EBV and CMV at the same time.
Went to bed on a Sunday night, mid September, and couldn't wake back up. I was cold to the bones and felt fluish. Wednesday morning, after my husband had picked up the slack (taking care of our 5 children) for two straight days, he told me I had to go to the dr. I got in Wednesday afternoon. They had to bring me a blanket because I was crying due to having the chills! I was sent for blood work after the throat thing said that I was negative for strep.
A day or two later, the nurse practitioner calls and tells me that I have a double whammy with both of these viruses being active and to take it easy.
This crap has ruined my life!! I had to leave college, can barely take care of my children and house, and could end up in divorce court if I don't feel better soon! I have tried and tried and tried! I go back to the Dr. on Monday and need any and all advice on what to ask/tell her.
Do I need additional tests for other viruses? I have no idea what all of the numbers are that I keep seeing posted because I wasn't given any. Do I need to pay attention to those? What else? Medications? Anti-Depressants? Sleep Aids? I am really suffering from insomnia and anxiety!
Thanks for any all help
