    So finally after a crazy journey of doctors, one found positive antibodies for EBV. The numbers were 140 & 40. I don't know what is what but those are the numbers she gave me. No CURRENT infection, but antibodies definitely present.

    She says this may likely be the reasoning for my fatigue and fatigue episodes... So this is a start,,

    NOW WHAT?

    FYI- still waiting for hhv-6 results.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    Do you have copies of the test results? Which type of antibody matters. If you have copies, post the different types of antibodies here and you should get some good responses.

    Best,
    Sushi
