EBV? or Adrenals?
I'm wondering if anyone has had luck going to the Mayo Clinic. I have been battling life-changing, wicked fatigue for 2 years. Before it hit, I was a healthy, 43 y/o working as a nurse, working out, and loving life! I am no longer working now. I went back to working (part-time) after I thought I was well enough only to relapse after 1 month. Besides the fatigue, other symptoms I have experienced are salt cravings, increased thirst, hypoglycemia, decreased appetite along with a 10 lb weight loss. I saw an infectious disease MD in 2016 since my EBV IgM titer was elevated. He ran a PCR test to look for EBV DNA and that was negative. So he said I do not have EBV. I decided to see an endocrinologist due to the nature of my symptoms. His work up was negative except for reactive hypoglycemia and recommended going to the Mayo Clinic. He thinks it has to do with the EBV since the lymph nodes in my neck are swollen. At this point I am looking for answers. I have no diagnosis but my life has been turned upside-down! I appreciate you taking time to read this and wish you the best on your journey! (I also spent 6 years in my twenties with chronic EBV and had a 1 year relapse in my late thirties. I really want answers!!)
