Epstein bar virus and fibromyalgia

Jun 24, 2018 9:18 PM

So my mom is convinced that fibromyalgia is caused by Epstein bar virus. I’m curious how many of you have had mono or persistent strep throat. I don’t really believe all of the articles my mom has been reading because the “facts” just don’t add up. If you have fibromyalgia and can let me know if you have ever had symptoms of mono that would help a lot.

Check out some of the writings of "the medical medium". I do believe they are linked. I have been diagnosed with both fibromyalgia & Epstein Barr.

What's strep throat? Can you get rid of fibro myalgia too?
