Discussions that mention synthroid

Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) board


I am confused about all the EBVs as well!
I have been "tired" and gotten run down easily for years. I was beginning to think it was just in my head.
When I have gone to Dr. about it in the past, it was determined that I had a low thyroid and was put on synthroid. It helped a little but I still experience tiredness.
Recently I went to a new doctor with symptoms of severe tiredness, a very sore throat, and off and on low grade fever. When she suggested testing for mono I thought it was ridiculous. I thought only teens got mono.....
The mono test (EBV Ab VCA, IgM) came back negative but the other EBV tests came back very high - EBV Nuclear Antigen AB, IgG ;EBV Ab VCA, IgG ; and EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG . The doctor's explanation was that I had recurring mono, although I never knew I had it the first time. (Have not always gone to Dr. regularly.)
I am now 45 years old and if her diagnosis is correct, I am at least glad to know that I am not a nut case constantly complaining about being tired.

Does all this sound right to anyone??? Or should I be looking for a second opinion???
