I have had fatigue for 10 years now. I just had a virus that inflammed my lymph nodes and spleen and the Dr. told me I had Epstein Barr in my system but it was from a long time ago and was not active. She said it must be just another virus in my system causing the inflammation. I always feel weak, dizzy, fatigued and unable to concentrate. It is much worse since this last virus and seems to always be worse when I'm stressed. I'm starting to miss alot of work and don't know what to tell my boss anymore. I have been diagnosed previously as having Chronic Fatigue but I don't know if EBV has to be active to have Chronic Fatigue? Any advice?
