Just curious to know if anyone else had mono before?
I really feel like I may have EBV but only the doctor can tell. But I do remember reading something about several people that have Fibro and or Lyme also had Mono at least once in their life???

I had mono before. 5 years after I had mono, I started having extreme problems with fatigue, and joint pain, along with extremely swolen glands, and the EBV was found in the bloodwork. They never did get to the bottom of my problem, but I believe that is when I had the first fibro symptoms that no one could explain.

I had mono when I was in 7th grade. My fibro dx was in 2007 when I was 45. But pain came on gradually over the years for me. I started seeing a chiropractor while in high school.

When my Doctor was doing testing to rule everything else out, she discovered I had the epstien bar virus in the past.
I just read somewhere (dont ask me where, maybe fibro for dummies? )    idea     that there may be a link between the epstien bar virus and fibro.
I guess one day we may know, maybe there are different triggers.  I think extreme stress brought the fibro on for me.  It's still pretty new to me..  not fun!!!!
It's amazing how your world can change so much.
We just gotaa do our best to still enjoy life. My D H is good to me, and supportove, but I wish he would take more of an interest in learning what fibro is all about.

No I never have, but it's interesting just by the responses you've gotten. I don't really think I have Fibro. My mom does and there are a lot of differences between what we are going through. I think mine is arthritis. Good luck. It would be interesting to have a study done. Heather
