I was a previously healthy 38 yr old. 11 months ago I came down with bad bronchitis and had cortisone and antibiotics. This all caused ebv to be reactivated. I have had so many symptoms, including fatigue, insomnia, night sweats, headaches, lower grade temperature, muscle aches, brain fog, swollen face and glands, and now high frequency hearing loss, balance problems, fatigue, muscle aches, brain fog, tinnitus. I have an undetectable ebv viral load from a pcr test but active ebv antibodies. The Drs are now saying its Cfs caused by the ebv. Could this still be ebv and not Cfs? How long can ebv wipe you out for?
