I have a good friend who is only 22 years old, and probably one of the most active people I know. She is always on the move, worked out every day etc. She had mono back in may 2007. The doctors diagnosed her with mono because she was positive for the Epstein Barr virus and extremely tired. Since last may, she is still extremely tired, to the point where she cannot hold a job and sleeps most days. There have been several other symptoms that cause us to think maybe this is not CFS.

Even though she's always tired, she doesn't feel like she's in a deep sleep at night, and wakes up often
Weight gain - even though she hardly eats
Dry hoarse throat
Constant thirst
Mitral valve prolapse
Orthostatic hypotension

She has been diagnosed with CFS and tested several times for lymes disease (all tests came back negative). We are thinking there might be something wrong with hormones...She is 22 years old and running low on optimism... if there is anyone with a suggestion or any similar problems please respond...thank you.

I am Epstein Barr Positive. When I went to have my blood tested, my antibodies were found to be very high. The doctor told me that my exposure to Mono was very recent. I recently found out that my supervisor at work came to work with mono sometime during the summer. The doctor I went to had no way of knowing this and still does not know it. I all of the symptoms you have listed above. I am a very light sleeper. I have gained a lot of weight in the past year. I can drink as many as four bottles of water during work and drink more at night if I don't control it. I have mitral valve prolapse. My blood pressure ranges from normal to low. These are all symptoms of Epstein Barr/Chronic Fatigue. Epstein Barr and thyroid problems can and are interrelated. Thyroid problems can cause Epstein Barr and Epstein Barr can cause thryoid problems.
