Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment Prevention

The Epstein Barr virus (EBV) is what causes chronic fatigue syndrome, a condition that has become widespread in the United States. The virus is also the cause of mononucleosis. EBV is a member of the herpes family and is related to the viruses that cause genital herpes and shingles.

The symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, also called the "yuppie disease," are fever, sore throat, swollen glands (lymph nodes), extreme fatigue, appetite loss, recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, intestinal problems, jaundice, anxiety, depression, irritability and mood swings, sleep disturbances, sensitivity to concentrating, headache, spasms, and aching muscles and joints. The symptoms of this syndrome resemble flu and other viral symptoms, so it is not always diagnosed correctly. It is often misdiagnosed as hypochondrea, psychosomatic illness, or depression, because the tests that are routinely ordered by doctors give negative results. A cure or vaccine for this virus has not yet been developed. It is difficult for doctors to identify, and the symptoms vary widely. This syndrome is three times more prevalent in women than in men.

The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta estimates that tens of thousands of people are infected with this virus. Many are only carriers of the virus and are unaware that they have it because they have no symptoms. Once EBV is contracted, it remains in the body, but most people develop antibodies to EBV.

Epstein Barr virus is highly contagious. It can be passed from one person to another by close contact, kissing, sharing food, and coughing, and it can be sexually transmitted. A person cannot become immune to EBV, and antibiotics will not help, because it is a viral disease. The virus causes "overreaction" of the immune system, which results in a type of immunity "burnout."

Chronic fatigue syndrome may also be caused by the fungus Candida albicans, chronic mercury poisoning from dental amalgam fillings, anemia, hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, and sleep problems.

If a person has elevated antibodies and if several of they symptoms mentioned above persist for two to three months, EBV is suspected, especially if all other symptom-producing illnesses have been ruled out. Sixteen experts have said that a diagnosis of EBV can be made only when the physician notes persistent fatigue over six months with at least eleven other symptoms that persist or recur over six months. The physician must rule out endocrine diseases, AIDS, infections, anemia, parasites, and the other diseases that cause similar symptoms.

Even though EBV is not life threatening, it is still incurable and can do serious damage tot he immune system. it is important that family members fully understand this disorder and realize that the person suffering from this virus is not exaggerating or faking the symptoms.
