Thank you for replying. As I understand, I was tested for mono or what is called Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) which is a member of the herpes family. However they tested me almost 3 months after I first complained of my symptoms which is too late (from what I read) to detect an active infection. I did though get a positive-negative result on my mono blood test but as my doctor explained, it just means that I've had it at some point before but it is not currently active. I could have had it when I was 13 or 20 or a year ago etc. It is very frustrating when the doctor is baffled but I will take some of your suggestions in the meantime and see if some of the symptoms I have can be soothed until someone can figure out what is wrong with me.
Thanks again for your response.
