Re: Just diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus.
I agree with the previous answer in that it sounds like you should find another doctor. I cannot believe she told you to look it up on line.
I have had (well still do as it does remain in the system forever) Epstein Barr virus. This was back in late 1980s. It is the same virus which causes Mono, so it is rather like having mono a second time except mine lasted longer.
But - and what is important here for you, is that if you have ever had mono, you could indeed test positive for EB.
EB does cause fatigue, exhaustion, low grade fever.... Mine started like a very bad flu (just like mono)
See if you can find a communicable disease specialist and have the test you again. Because there is a whole slew of things out there that can cause similar symptoms - including Lyme, Fibro, Chronic fatigue, endocarditis, leukemia...... So you really want to make sure on this one.
