I had a stack of blood tests done recently. One of them (EBNA IgG) flagged up as "DETECTED Consistent with past, not recent, EBV infection." I assume, therefore, that the doctors will not be concerned by this, and I have no idea whether they actually should be. I don't know whether "recent" means months or years.
However, a very interesting post on the Stop the Thyroid Madness site flagged up on my FB page today, which made me wonder if I should be asking more questions about this. I've been googling, and found information supposedly linking the virus with auto-immune illnesses, but nothing about whether I should be questioning my GP/neurologist/endocrinologist? <not that they will be interested anyway>
