I always knew I had Psoriactic Arthristis that was dibilitating. I suspected I had Lupus but tested negative awhile ago. In February I was diagnosed with Mono for the second time in my life. I also went to a rheumatologist that put me on methotrexate for my joint pain and skin. I developed pneumonia and was taken off the methotrexate and put on Predisone (which worked great for the joint pain and skin). As I recovered from the pneumonia which took some time and two rounds of antibiotic, my PA flared like CRAZY! I went back on the methotrexate, but I am still flaring and have been exhausted beyond belief. I missed another day of work today. My question is does the Ebstein Barr Virus have anything to do with this? When I ask my regular Dr all they say is that it depends on the individual. Why, why, why am I always so fatiqued? Some times I will sleep for two days at a time. I asked if they tested me again for the Epstein Barr and they said no. They tested me for Lyme and it came back negative. Thyroid normal. No diabetes. Any advice? I am on folic acid now and I am taking B12 in the morning (just switched from night to morning). Any comments or advice would help. Thank You so much.
