Cytomegalovirus Help

Hi Everyone,

I was recently diagnosed with an active Cytomegalovirus infection. My blood tests also confirmed I'd had a previous Epstein Barr Virus infection (I had a bout of Mono about 6 years ago). I know the majority of people who get CMV have no symptoms, but I really struggled with it. I suffered from severe body aches, exhaustion, migraines, an enlarged spleen, liver and abdominal lymph nodes, abnormal liver functions, diahrrea, and significant anemia.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has experience with CMV and its symptoms - particularly having both CMV & EBV. I'm beginning to feel better, but still suffer from fatigue at times and diahrrea. I'd love to hear from anyone who has had to deal with this. Will it recuur? Should my boyfriend be worried about getting it?

I really appreciate any insight anyone is able to give!
