    Hi Lori, well, you don't have mono, you have reactivated EBV. It's worse, in my opinion.

    I too had went on BHRT back when all my symptoms were out the roof, but after three months I went off because the anxiety of wondering if the meds were causing new symptoms was worse. I was curious to see if they were helping you any, since I too have reactivated EBV. Did any of your symptoms get better?

      I got very sick the summer of 2016. I really believe it just takes time to start feeling better. It's hard for us because our immune systems are weakened because of the peri. I'm hoping that once I'm full meno my immune system will strengthen again. I went to an immunologist in NYC, she does research for CFS. She recommended antiviral medication but I decided not to take it.

      Do you recall if you were exposed to any pesticide spraying right before getting sick?
