About two months ago I noticed I started to get intense brain fog and fatigue, I would sleep for hours upon hour. A couple days go by and I go to the primary care doctor and my tests come back positive for both mono and strep. I never had the typical symptoms like sore throat or high fever, even with the strep. I start to feel a better by the end of the week but it only lasts for a couple days and then I notice I look extremely pale or flushed, extreme fatigue, and dizziness. I go back to the doctor and they say I still have mono and haven't made antibodies yet. Weeks go by and I still feel extreme fatigue and mental confusion/ brain fog and I'm told I still haven't made antibodies with more blood tests and am sent to an ID. The ID does more blood tests and all of that comes back good and my immune function is normal, but it's shows no sign of me ever having mono or mono in my blood. She sends me to a rheumatologist. Fast forward a couple weeks later and I catch some nasty viral illness which dramatically increases my fatigue, sore throat with white spots on tonsils, high fevers. I go to the ER for the fevers and they decide to do a Epstein-Barr panel and it comes back with no evidence I ever had mono the last two months. I'm later told that all the doctor offices tests were false positives. I was wondering if they're could be anything that could cause this, I've already been checked for cancers and autoimmune. My guess was late stage lyme which would explain the extreme fatigue, mental fog, memory problems and muscle aches. I mentioned this to my doctor but she just brushed it off stating "you don't have lyme" . Please help!! The last two months have been miserable !!
