Epstein Barr Virus and carbohydrates

So I've tested positive for IgGs and nuclear antibodies for Epstein Barr Virus, although lack of IgM's indicate initial exposure was quite a while ago.
My symptoms include fatigue, chills (body temp dropped to 96.4 for 6 weeks), extreme sensitivity to cold, numbness and lack of pain sense in skin (including inside of mouth and nose), muscle aches and mild loss of coordination.
TSH and free T4 both normal, CBCs normal, elevated hematocrit (non-smoker), elevated neutrophils, low insulin, 3-hr glucose tolerance shows all blood glucose normal. B12 and vit D normal as well.
However, cutting carbohydrates out of my diet makes me feel better within 30 hours, but any carbohydrates (including fruits) make me feel terrible! All the above symptoms return after a few days of eating a "normal" diet that includes carbohydrates.
Anyone have any idea what the correlation is between EBV and carbohydrates? This is making me crazy.
