The doctor's office called today. I managed to get her to run a bunch of tests to see what was going on as I feel a lot worse. I thought perhaps either some other illness had appeared and/or I had a reactivating virus. It seems like the tests indicate that I have mumps and so I am to go back for repeat blood testing tomorrow. They wanted to know my symptoms and yes, it certainly feels like I have mumps although there isn't much swelling. I've actually been saying that I feel like I've got mumps - sore glands, throat, ears, teeth - for several weeks. She didn't run all the tests that I'd asked for so I asked if she'd run the EBV and CMV tests this time. Hopefully she will since I caught the mumps reactivation. It isn't usually something I'd ask for but since I'd had mumps as a child (from a vaccine) and had the symptoms, I put it on the list. Good call on my part if I do say so myself! The question is what to do about it? Is there anything I can take to beat this thing into submission? Going by the way I have been feeling I'd say it has been reactivating for about 3 to 4 weeks.
