Hi I was diagnosed with EBV when i was 16 and now im 40. I had several active bouts with EBV over the years but this past october it was active for the first time in 4 years i went to my doctor and he confirmed it was active through blood work, again in april i started feeling lousy, moderate fatigue low grade temp around 99.7 swollen lymphnodes body aches and pains I have never had active bouts of EBV so close together and this time it doesnt want to get better but this time dr told me i also have CMV which showed to also be active unfortunately my dr tells me nothing can be done and i have to learn to live with it Its very frustrating. I just had part of my thyroid removed because of a large solid nodule Im hoping that was part of the cause eventhough my general dr as well as my surgeon and my endo all said my thyroid is functioning normal. I am already eating a healthier diet i take vitamin B12 and 2000 units of vitamin D each day I excercise when i have the energy any other ideas on how to beat this so i can feel better and stay better

Re: EBV and CMV
I have also had bouts of EBV since I was a teenager, and have recently been diagnosed with CMV. I would look for an infectious disease specialist. I am on antivirals to knock it back down.

It won't cure it but they have helped with EBV in the past and my doc feels like it will help with the CMV too.

Re: EBV and CMV
What antiviral did you take for the CMV?
