    Hello all! My name is Dotty, I am new. I am wondering if anyone knows if CFS is the same as Epstein-Barr virus? I have Epstein-Barr virus. I thought maybe the new name for it might be Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Thanks.

    Epstein barr do have a link... They used to call Chronic Fatigue,Chronic Epstein Barr because so many people had the virus.. They have since discovered that there are alot of other causes for Chronic Fatigue syndrome. I started with Eptsein barr and went into Mono and then was diagnosed with CFS later on.. You may want to post this question on the CFS/fibro board and I'm sure you will get more input. Click on Message Boards at the top of this page and then the link for cfs/fibro.. Good luck Dotty and welcome to the Pro health message boards..
    Hugs!
