Hi!

This is just theory question yeah! so have to get the wording right, ok


If you in the past including childhood have had Glandular fever and now suffer from having fatigue can you please answer just by saying yes or no.



Thank you

Well, first I had to find out what "Glandular Fever" is. :smile:

Per Wikipedia, here are all the other names for it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infectious_mononucleosis

Infectious mononucleosis (IM; also known as EBV infectious mononucleosis or glandular fever or Pfeiffer's disease or Filatov's disease[1] and sometimes colloquially as the kissing disease from its oral transmission or simply as mono in North America and as glandular fever in other English-speaking countries) is an infectious, widespread viral disease caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), one type of herpes virus, to which more than 90% of adults have been exposed.[2]


And no, I've never been diagnosed with it.
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)

Euphoniaa,

Thanx, a lot of people who have ms have previously had Glandular fever which is Epstein Barr virus, as so is herpes and cold sores, the virus lays dormant in the system, and I wonder if it resurfaces as fatigue, also chickenpox and Shingles are related to the virus (I think) and they too lay dormant within the system, possibly resurfacing as praps fatigue.

I dont know what causes fatigue, I just thought I would ask those who would actually know the answer to the question and that is those who have actually been diagnosed with ms ( I hope you are still awake now, and havent dozed off out of boredom)

So thank you, at least you have learnt what Glandular fever actually is eh! I have never had it either.

Civickiller,

You are right a misaligned Atlas can cause fatigue, as so can Candida and Lyme. interesting eh! praps it is caused by a combination which includes the Epstein Barr virus.

I say this because when I was 21 I was told I had herpes, but I dont think I was ever tested for it, now if I look up thrush, thet are the symptoms that I experienced.

I dont get fatigue never have done, but I have never had Glandular fever, coldsores, chickenpox or shingles either. I find that fascinating and very interesting, as could Valtrex cure fatigue.

I have a friend back where I used to live and she suffers with fatigue, but she had Glandular fever as a kid.

So why dont I
