    Hi All, 

    New here. I’ve been reading all your comments. And thought I would share my story and get some advise. 

    I was unwell November and December 2017 finally got bloods done beginning of Jan 2018 and the ebv was positive for 1-3month previous? 

    I am still so tired and have swollen glands, still get achy all over. My anxiety and constant worry that it is all something more serious is driving me crazy and feels like it is making me worse. I need to stop googling my symptoms because when I do I scare myself even more from what I read..

      Hi dslr,

      i was was diagnosed with past infection to glandular fever in Dec 2016. And I'm only now on my 7th consecutive good week, so it's taken just over a year to start properly getting better.

      i was so exhausted, tired, had aches and tingles, and a very low mood too.

      take care of yourself with lots of rest and vitamins, and eventually you will get better. It's not a straight line more of a zig zag recovery.
