I'm new to this forum, so I'll introduce myself briefly: I am a 24 year old male and I've been sick for about 6 months. I've traveled through Asia for about 3 months, and in the last two weeks of my trip I have become sick, around the beginning of May. After getting home, I went to my GP a several times and did a couple of blood tests. I was tested positive for acute EBV, but my body had also already made antibodies; this was around the end of June. So, I've been feeling sick for about 6 months now, but I don't feel like I'm improving. Besides, my symptoms are pretty uncommon I feel like. Tiredness or a lack of energy isn't my main symptom, I just feel sick and in pain all the time. My main symptoms are: muscle aches (the kind of muscle aches you have when you're having a flu), general malaise, muscle twitches all over my body, a burning sensation in my joints, blurry eyesight (I think because of dry eyes) and increased eye floaters, sometimes buzzing/ringing in the ears, pain in bladder sometimes, fungal infections of the skin, pain in (I think) the liver and some other symptoms.
Does anyone recognize these symptoms? I am currently afraid for a tropical disease or something else that I might have contracted during my time in Asia such as Lyme disease (which has pretty similar symptoms).
Thanks in advance!
