Hi Kitty: When my daughter was 16,( she is now 38 and very very healthy) , she had a very bad gym injury, and alot of problems flared up. One of the nurses where I worked suggested she might have Chronic Epstein Barr Virus Syndrome. The best way to discover that is via a blood test called "the tieter test"or "teter" I am not sure of the spelling. Anyhow, the family doctor reluctantly agreed (they hate having to do it) and that is what she had. It lasted for about 3 yrs, but rest, good food, vitiamins, anti-oxidents, etc. There is no drug per-say for it. It takes its time to go, and even then, you have to watch yourself or it could come back, but the symptoms do eventually disappear. Everyone is different. One thing you cannot do it fight it. It fights back and you loose. It is a mix of Chronic Fatique and Fibromyalgia and you feel "dead" . If your doctor will not do it, insist on seeing a rheumatologist. You have to fight for your health these days. I am in Canada, so these tests are free, I do not know about the U>S>A> and their policies. All the best and let us know what the results are in a few weeks ok?
