Question Is it EBV?

Beginning in about 1988, when I was in my mid-20's, I started feeling tired and achy all over. These symptoms would appear almost like clockwork every two months or so. In 1997, they started happening more frequently. Lately, I haven't been having them as often, but I still occassionally get to the point where I am just achy all over, and all I want to do is sleep. I feel like that today. I started feeling like that yesterday afternoon, after I'd swum a few laps in our public pool. (I also had not slept very well the previous evening. I have sleep apnea and use a CPAP.)

I've been to doctors, and the ONLY abnormality they have ever found has been a positive monospot. And THAT wasn't found till a good 15 years AFTER I started having these symptoms!

Has anyone had similar symptoms, and does it sound like EBV--and if it is, how can I get a definitive diagnosis? I live in the Atlanta area.
