Thank you for your post. I was tested for lyme disease in December - apparently they did both acute and convalescent screens and they came back negative.
I have a question about your EBV, though - how do you know it's active? Did you have some kind of test done? Do you have CFS or do you still not know?
The thing is I don't have any of the joint/muscle pain that I hear CFS patients have. Do you think it's possible that all my exercise weakened my immune system so that the herpes and other viruses simply took hold and now my immune system is suppressed and can't handle anything? The only other thing that happenned the year I started to get sick was that I went to Greece. But I can't really remember if I was starting to feel unwell before I went or if it started when I came back. I can't have been that unwell when I was there because I was walking around sightseeing, swimming in the sea and partying until early morning which I certainly can't do now.
