This might be a good question to ask on the Chronic Fatigue forum since EBV is common in people with CFS. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be a very active forum.

Maybe people with CFS have even less energy than we do?

There's a good group of chronic fatigue members on the immune support site, just google it, look under message boards, then pick chronic fatigue. I used to go there before I was diagnosed with ms then lyme.

Take care, diana

Over 90 % of the U.S. population is infected with EBV (including me). EBV is the virus that causes "Mono".

No one has, as of yet, been able to determine whether our immune systems are compromised by a virus or other thing, bringing our immune systems down, so that then we are susceptible to contracting Lyme & other tick-born infections, or if the tick-born infections drag our immune systems so low that we contract these types of viruses. The old "Which came first, the chicken or the egg" situation.
