My latest bloods show a high EBV titer. It's always been there, I know, but I really think this time my symptoms point more to EBV than Lyme. (if that's possible)
I have this chronic fatigue lately, some swollen underarm lymph glands which I have had since Lyme dx in 2007 but more painful lymph glands in my neck. I have been sleeping more, rather than sleeping less and just can't wait to get off my feet in the afternoon.
I am ramping up herbs for Lyme and bart: crytoplepsis, Sida Acuta, Red Root, and now adding BLT from Researched Nutritionals, detoxing with parsley, burber and tumeric with Lemon.
Is there any herb that would be specific to EBV? I was on Japanese Knotweed for 9 months and did fairly well, but dropped it last month after some Lyme symptoms started coming back...specifically insomnia and my cortisol was very low. Is JPK an EBV herb and possibly since dropping it, the virus is floating back to the top?
When I got the lab report via email from my LLMD, he said he wants to talk about an antiviral when he sees me in two weeks. I cannot tolerate Valtrex, so I hope he has something else in his bag of tricks. Even OLE is too strong for me, but I might have to be open to a bumpy ride for a while. Ugh....another bumpy ride.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
