Re: Any info helps
Have you ever had a liver function test? The reason I ask is because yellowing of the skin can occur if a person has liver disease.
Here's what I believe to be true about Chronic EBV. When you first contract EBV, you get Mono...it's the virus that causes it and it's very contagious. When the virus resolves and a person gets better, they are no longer contagious. Well, in some people the getting better part doesn't seem to want to take place...it's almost like they are stuck in it.
See, I don't think that's because the infection itself has become chronic, but rather the damaged caused by it's presence in the body is still there. Usually, the blood testing for EBV will still show positive because they are checking for antibodies to the virus, not for the virus itself.
So, really what I believe you have here is a Post Viral Syndrome rather than a chronic infection and therefore it's very unlikely that you could infect anyone at this point.
I hope this helps you some.
