    Has anyone been told that they have he Epstein's Barr Virus via your EBV titers? If so, what are your readings. I was at 4000. Now around 900. They tell me I ahve CFS now. It's a rough 2006

    I was diagnosed with the older lab system. >19 was EBV, mine was >170 ie. off the scale.

    My Cytomegalovirus (CMV) was also high.

    There is actually quite a list of viruses that can flag you as CFS.

    I'm not so convinced that its the virus alone. Per the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 85% of the US pop has been exposed to EBV.

    I think that the difference is some other factor that weakens the immune system. My profile matches mercury toxicity real well, so I'm waiting for my hair analysis test results to confirm. It wouldn't hurt for you to research mercury for yourself. Lead is also a culprit.

    The good news in all this is that once you chelate out the mercury, you can begin to start feeling better. It doesn't have to be a life long illness.
