My daughter had long bouts of "walking pneumonia" which was attributed to mycoplasma infection when she was a child. She stayed sick for a long time and during that same time, I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with positive Epstein Barr testing. Twenty-five years later, we're suspicious that my daughter's current illness (lung disease) may also be connected with a reactivation of one or both of these pathogens in her. She has severe fatigue.
