I'm glad you have put this out there. When I came down with EBV eight months after spinal surgery. The EBV attacked my joints. I couldn't care for myself….basic needs. My Internist never heard of using antivirals, like Acyclovir to treat it. I learned about here, on this forum. I mean, EBV is in the herpes family, it only makes sense. We have to educate ourselves….especially when you have a doctor that doesn't care to investigate to help.

I find what you said about any hit to the body interesting. My EBV showed up 8 months after I had spinal surgery. The pain was horrendous for eight weeks. Even during sleep, I was biting my tongue and inside my cheeks from the pain while "sleeping." My fingers were contracted. I could not even do basic hygiene or toliet care. Doctor did NOTHING! It happened this time last year. Not a day goes by that I don't think about it and am fearful. Checking to see if Kratom is really good for pain…..just in case if there is a "next" time.

My initial symptoms were red, irritated eyes, plus hard sneezing from the chest, fatigue. That stopped and then the virus attacked all my joints. Horrible pain. Worse than my post-op spinal fusion 8 month before. An oxycontin would take 50% of the pain away….enough to shower, feed the animals, myself for four hours.

I'm glad this was brought up. I've been having dreams where I'm soaked in sweat, wake up with a headache on the left side of my forehead. My husband says I do a lot of talking in my sleep. When I wake up out of one of those dreams, I feel drugged, dizzy, disoriented and fatigued all day. Getting tired of it…no pun intended.

Hard to say….I've always been tired and needed a nap in the afternoon, since the age of 13. No blurred vision. Sometimes my eyes burn. No rash. The horrible horrible pain I had in December and January is gone. Still some aches and pains running through my wrists. Just annoying enough to rub it and in a little while it's gone. If not, Naproxen does the trick.

Interesting. I'll bring it up to the neurosurgeon and the family doctor who is an internist. I already have autoimmune Hashimoto's thyroiditis since I was 30.

For what it is worth, I had spine surgery March 2017. Titanium rods. In December, I wake up with can only be described as a full blown rheumatoid arthritis flare. Excruciating pain in every bone and joint, except my neck and back. Blood test show negative for rheumatoid arthritis, but positive for Epstein Barr. I'm 61. I've been a Nurse for 40 years. I find it very, very strange that I have not been exposed to mono in forty years of nursing. I have my last appointment with the neurosurgeon March 27. I'll ask him about the immune system and this surgery I had, causing mono.

Blood test and looked over by a pathologist.
