Re: Please help!! Husband horribly sick for 3+ months and no diagnoses!!!

Gennel,
Thank goodness he is starting to feel better! A month without fevers is good progress. The lab tests for EBV are somewhat complex, and one must be very familiar with them to determine current vs past infection. If it turns out to be lupus, EBV is thought to trigger lupus in some people, and the Prednisone may have knocked it into remission. I am glad they finally got a biopsy, so you will answers soon. You have been thru a bad 3 months, and are due for a break!
