Hey everyone! I've read about the epstein barr virus incubation period being ebv is 4-6 weeks. Some time ago I had unprotected sex and about 3 weeks later shingles appeared. Would a virus such as ebv trigger something like shingles so soon after this incident? I also developed a huge cold sore straight after shingles started to heal. In the first couple of months after the unprotected sex i had i severe lack of energy, persistent headache, swollen lymph nodes and jaundice, not to mention liver pain. Could this be a sign of ebv?
What you've described sounds a lot like EBV, especially the fatigue, swollen lymphs, jaundice, and liver pain. Also, I've seen/heard plenty of people who have had rashes, cold sores, etc. from EBV. Have you had a sore throat at all? That's another symptom which is very common with EBV. Have you gone to a doctor yet for all this?
