Epstein-Barr virus

 [ep´stīn bahr´]
a herpesvirus of the genus Lymphocryptovirus, one of the etiologic agents of infectious mononucleosis. It has been isolated from cells cultured from Burkitt's lymphoma and has been found in certain cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma. There may be an association between EBV and chronic fatigue syndrome. High titers of EBV are present in some tumors, but a causative role has not been proven. Called also EB virus.

Patient discussion about EBV

Q. Is there a connection between Epstein-Barr Virus and Fibromyalgia and where can I find information? I was diagnosed with EBV 10 years ago and got diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Depression 5 yrs ago-is there a connection and if so where can I obtain information. If anyone can help-Thank You!

A. EBV is a herpes virus. And there are arguments from both sides if it has a connection or not to Fibromyalgia, some articles say that , some say the other. The truth is that for the patient it doesn’t mater. If you have it you have to deal with it and it doesn’t mater how it showed up. This mater to the researches.
