I have had it come and go for over 20 years. However, my EBV blood work always stays elevated. Sometimes it is more elevated than others. Like Hippimom2, I think Lupus is a big part of it for me. My step mom has CFS too without having a systematic disease as far as we know. She had CFS real bad for years and all of a sudden it just went away for a couple of years. It is back now, but she seems to be okay and can function for the most part. I hope you get an extended break and/or it goes away completely.
