After being accused of faking my sympotoms I have been left

Customer Question

After being accused of faking my sympotoms I have been left ill for about five years now. A gp did a test and I came back positive to Chronic Active Epstein Barr Virus. There is no treatment in Australia and I was told it is life threatening if not treated. Could you tell me where I can be treated for this please.

There is no such thing as chronic active Epstein Barr virus.

There is such a thing as chronic active hepatitis, but that is a completely different virus.

So I am not sure what you are talking about.

People either have the acute antibodies, or the antibodies that indicate a past infection.

The virus can cause a post viral syndrome. Regular medicine has no specific treatment for this.

One can carry an early antigen D antibody, which some think gives a higher risk to extended symptoms and problems from Epstein Barr.

Regular medicine again has no specific treatment to this.

If you can put in your anti body profile, I can further evaluate this.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
