Hi, I don't want to say EBV isn't the cause, because it's possible, but I've never heard of it causing facial drooping/muscle weakness. What other symptoms of EBV have you had? Have you been tested for it? Sorry for all the questions, but you sound positive that that's what you have, and I'm just wondering what led you to that conclusion. Also, have you been dealing with any other physical/health issues that could be connected to this?
I have been tested for everything under the sun and the only thing that has come up has been a reactivation of EBV. It has been an entire year of testing with only that as the result. I have also read medical journals that say it occurs in 4-6% of people with active EBV. Just hoping to find others with the same thing.
Re-activation does happen (happened to me, in fact, so we're in the same boat there). But like I said, I've never heard of the facial muscle issues... not to say it's impossible that EBV is causing that, but I still would tend to think it's something else (although I unfortunately can't say what).
