I am trying to find where I read somewhere, either on here or in "Cure Unknown" about how patients with Lyme will test positive for EBV. I did test + last year for EBV, but would like to find that reference.
Help Anyone??

My LLMD told me that Lyme reactivates EBV -- and my EBV antibodies are off the charts (literally) every time I've had them tested --

Valtrex helped immensely with a lot of my symptoms.

I am fairly certain I've read reference to this somewhere, too, but I don't remember where.

My doctor doesn't even test for EBV as he says everyone has it.

I believe I heard that most people would test positive for EBV as well. What is important is if the virus is active or not.

minimonkey what symptoms did valtrex help you with?

ah, thanks you all. I think i get it now. I somehow had it in my dizzy head that EBV positives were really somehow not nec EBV, but Lyme showing up in that way.

I know.. I know.. I'm a goober.

At least that explains my test last year.. I thought I'd had mono as a teen, but then it showed up last year as if THAT was the "diagnosis" for my lethargy, etc.

This may help you: http://chronicfatigue.stanford.edu/infections/herpes.html

Read all the sections under the Herpes Virus sections. Also, check out some of the publications on this page: http://chronicfatigue.stanford.edu/infections/herpes-research.html

Best, Timaca

My non-lyme specialist doc tells me EBV is one of those that's just everywhere, we've all got some here and there, with chronic immune suppression (such as with lyme), then naturally it would be more active. It's one he doesn't bother to treat specifically, but rather works on immune support generally.
