Hi, I have been suffering from extreme exhaustion and nausea (even though I never actually get sick) for over 3 months now. I have been working out since February which struck me as odd because I always heard if you work out it will give you more energy. Well, I finally went to the doctor last week and they took blood. Turns out, I have EBV, which makes absolutely no sense to me. I've been reading up on it and basically find alot of different answers. My main question right now is that I'm seeing a person with EBV should contact an infectious disease doctor. My doctor told me if I'm still feeling this way in three months then to come back and have more bloodwork done and that an infectious disease doctor can't do anything to help me. What do I do? Go with my doctor's advice or what I'm seeing on the internet. I've been told not to always believe what I read on the internet. Help! Also, I am seeing alot of "herpes" coming up on this infection too and I'm just curious is it some type of std? That really doesn't set well with me. Any advice/info you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
