Yes, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are common in people inflicted with Human Herpes virus 6. Also, the condition is worsened due to post viral fatigue as a result of HHP-6 and mono. Just as mono causes recurrent flares, HHP-6 too is known to cause recurrent flares. Thus the fatigue, body aches and pain persist. Antiviral therapy is known to reduce the fatigue and other symptoms. You can discuss this with your doctor. Apart from this maintaining a healthy life style, drinking plenty of water (8-10 glasses per day unless contraindicated due to kidney problems), eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables etc helps combat the fatigue and pain. Exercising regularly also helps build strength and endurance. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
