Question EVB flare

Hello everyone,
About 10 years ago I went to the doctor because I had swollen glands in my armpits and extreme fatigue. My blood tests came back positive for EBV. It lasted a few months, but I got better.
I'm wondering if I'm having a flare now or reactivation; whatever you call it. A few weeks ago I started getting very sleepy during the day at work and even had to go to bed early a few times (I'm normally a night owl). And then a week and a half ago there was a day when i felt really terrible- fatigue, headache, sleepiness, light-headed, and a slight fever. I also had two canker sores which usually means something's up with my body. but I felt ok the next day. but ever since then, there are days when I'm totally fine and other days when I'm extremely fatigued, tired, have a slight fever and sore throat. i don't have swollen glands, though. is this a flare of EBV or do the lack of swollen glands and the fact that i have good days mean that it's something else?
