Hi everyone, I have been reading these forums for some time in order to gain some moral support for this hideous journey I am now part of. But admittedly, I have never commented. I'm in month 7 since my EBV diagnosis and for the first 5 months I coped reasonably well. The symptoms since the beginning were strange and unlike any other bug I'd ever had, but I could still function fairly well and the symptoms would come and go. Then I found out I was pregnant....Yay, over the moon! then came the mono, with an absolute vengeance!! Night sweats, inability to settle during sleep, like a constant discomfort in my whole body. Aching legs, constant tummy pain, a vile sensation in my head, that feeling you have when you know you're coming down with something, like just a horrible yuk, I feel Ill feeling that you can't pinpoint, but you just feel dreadful. light headedness, sensitivity to sound and freezing cold feet, all of the time! It's no easy feat being pregnant, especially the first 12 weeks, and with such a severe mono flare up, I'm at breaking point! I'm terrified that my baby will be born and I'll still be so ill that I won't be able to enjoy being a mum, it feels like I'm going to have this awful virus forever, I feel like it has stolen my life and all of my happiness from me. Has anyone else had experience of this virus actually getting worse as time goes on?? are all of these symptoms normal?? thank you in advance for any advice, my GP is of very little help, they seem to know very little.
