My question is, during the recovery, does EBV typically just go away one day or does it proceed like I am experiencing. Feeling better mores hours each day as time goes on until eventually you feel fine again.
I guess I am just trying to get hope in the fact that the few hours of feeling OK is the normal healing process and to feel positive about it.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
I have been waiting for a recovery of EBV since June of 04' !
However I have, ' Chronic EBV ' ! So, I have no idea how long I will feel like
crap ! I go to a ' Doctor of Infectious Diseases ', but they don't seem to have any answers about what can be done for this !
This may depend on age... I am fiftyish, and too old for this stuff !
My symptoms are : low temp., achy joints, general feeling of having the flu,
swollen and painful parotid glands (slava glands, the glands where you have
the MUMPS !), total fatigue, and sometimes I can't stay out of bed.
Arthritis is worse. And, I also have Fibromylgia !
I hope this doesn't sound negative. Maybe you are much younger than me.
Are you going to a ' Doctor of Infectious Diseases ? '
This can all be checked with blood work.
I hope something out of this will help...,
My Doctor told me that this can't reocccur unless you are a teenager.
