Hi everyone, Sorry this is long-I will break it up in the best way I can. My fiance' lives in Mexico and was a very, very healthy person (organic whole foods, non smoker/drinker, marathon runner, no junk food, physical labor, etc) I have been sick for about 3 1/2 yrs and for the past 2 yrs he has been saying he's tired often-way more often than previously. His fatigue and other symptoms have been on and off, so we don't have an exact start date for his fatigue. Today he told me a few times when he has finished breakfast (after outdoor work) he is so tired that he falls asleep with his head on the table. Several times in the past year he has had to go back to bed after a meal, and slept a few hours. He also told me he's super tired after just doing light work outdoors, and has almost a drunk or dizzy feeling with that. This is intermittent-sometimes he can work without problems. All of these symptoms are new for him. For the past 2 days he just wants to sleep. These are my exact symptoms starting appox approx Feb of 2012 although I feel a lot better lately. I know he is fighting it-trying not to be sick, so he is likely down playing some of his symptoms, and not sleeping as much as he should I have been diagnosed (so far) with EBV ("extremely high" values) and CMV viruses, SIBO, and Babesia (Bartonella test pending) as well as B12/folate issues, low Vit D, and some odd thyroid issues. I also have herpes in my eye (for many years) and have been on an antiviral for a few years for that. I have not yet started any antibiotics. My mono tests were positive as early March of 2013-although I had already been tired for almost a year, and I'm not sure it was a good test (I think it was mono-spot) but I'm convinced it is what I had at that time. My question is -what could I have given to him? I don't think I'd be able to catch a new case of mono at age 5 5 (3 yrs ago) Seems more likely to be a reactivation from teenage years. If so, is a reactivation contagious? Could I have given him CMV? Most people have been exposed to this as well-so mine would likely be a reactivation-can he get it from me? Of course it's possible they are not re activations...... Are tick borne diseases contagious? I was told that one of them was-but it isn't what I have. Anyone have any experience with my illnesses being contagious?
