Hi Charlie and everyone – My name is Ann. Have had this since one of my students bit me in 2007. It comes and goes but this time it has been here 5 months with the symptoms you all are also having. My spleen is swollen up again – ow! This time I am going to go to an ENT to see if something additional is going wrong down my throat. But I doubt it. I think my doctors are just baffled and will go along with the ENT to make sure EBV hasn't mutated into something else. Am going to try the regimen I saw on a post from a couple years ago with Di-Hist and D-ribose etc. Will ask for Valtrex. I am so very sorry you aren't working and understand how that impacts your world. I am still working but don't think it will last much longer. I work four 10's so get 3 days in a row off. I just don't want to be home because I did that before and spiraled downwards – I know all of you are familiar with that unfortunate side effect. Will check back here to see if someone is having success with a treatment so I can try it, too. Thank you for being here.
