Here is my story of what I think is EBV. My hope is that someone can confirm if these are typical symptoms or offer what helped them recover.
On November 10, 2017 I was at work when I suddenly felt weak and hot and wobbly. My coworkers said I was pale as a ghost. I left work soon after and drove to my doctor. During my drive I got so fatigued that I was worried I would crash.. went to my doctor 2 hours earlier than my appt because I thought I was going to collapse. She diagnosed me with asthma (false.. never had it and the inhaler did nothing).
The first week my symptoms were:
-extreme fatigue and weakness
(Felt like I would collapse or die)
-extreme chills but no fever
-strange sudden onset of morning anxiety. I would wake up with my heart pounding and an unexplainable fear and feeling of impending doom.
- strongest sense of smell and taste everything would make me feel nauseous couldn’t stomach any food first week.
For the last few weeks, the following symptoms have come and gone:
-fatigue (comes in waves .. sometimes it’s less and sometimes it leaves me bed bound)
-weird sudden neck pains
-persistent mild sore throat
-shortness of breath
-sensitive eyes to light
-nausea and lack of appetite (less often now but still occurs)
-anxiety (from feeling trapped st home and sick for so long)
I’ve had Abdominal ultrasound, chest x rays, EKG (ECG? Not sure which one is the correct one lol. For the heart), CT scan.. tons of blood work.. I should be a healthy person according to all my medical investigation. I feel terribly ill, nothing like I’ve ever experienced before.
My monospot was negative. EBV was positive for IGG, indicating a past or recent infection. All other EBV antibodies were negative. My doctors isn’t sure what to think of the blood panel.
Please advice, share your stories
