    Symptomatic of first exposure or first OB - or both??

    Here's an interesting question for everyone...

    Those of us suffering from their first OB also suffer from additional, flu-like symptoms. Fever, naseau, achiness etc. Are these symptoms indicative only upon first exposure, or also of first OB.

    For instance, let's assume that a person has been carrying the virus for a period of several years. Even if they had the flu-like symptoms when they were exposed, they wouldn't have known why, as they are a carrier. Now, a few years later something happens that causes them to have an OB. Will they experience those symptoms again (or for the first time), or are those symptoms more likely to happen only when you are first exposed - regardless of whether you get an OB.

    Realizing that not too many people who are carriers actually know when they are exposed, so this might be a theoretical question - but I do have a method to my madness, so any opinions would be welcome.
