I've had what my doctor 'thinks' might be reactivated Glandular Fever / Mono. My blood test has stayed the same from the start and I just had another blood test now.
My symptoms have been extremely debilitating so much so that i'm housebound at the moment.
I'm a 31 y/o male.
This started about 3 months ago when I had normal flu like symptoms that completely wiped me out. Then about a month ago the sore throat seemed to have gone away and i just had the terrible fatigue (but enough to go to work and power through it).
I started taking Olive Leaf Extract about 2 weeks ago, and I was fine up until the 3rd day where it absolutely hit me, I got dizzy and felt like I wanted to faint. Then extremely sick in the stomach, diarhoea, extreme fatigue, burping/flatulence, flu symptoms and extremely sore throat etc. It has been a few days since then and it has slowly gotten better (besides the terrible fatigue).
I went to the doctor to get the results of my most recent blood and urine tests and everything came up clear. They can see I had EBV 4 years ago and they think it might have been reactivated. They basically told me there is nothing they can do and to just rest.
I am completely at my wits end with this, i'm fearing i might lose my job.... the fatigue is so bad I just don't know what to do now....
Hoping someone might be able to help.
