EBV: EBV is Epstein Barr Virus. It's the virus that causes mononucleosis. The symptoms are fatigue, fever, swollen glands and sore throat. Since it's a virus, it needs to run it's course, and your body's immune system will fight it. Rest and fluid will help. There should be no long term problems. ...Read more

The epstein–barr virus (ebv) is a virus in the herpesvirus family and is one of the most common viruses in humans. Ebv is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis, and infection with ebv occurs by the oral transfer of saliva and/or genital secretions, hence the moniker "the kissing disease". In the us, about 90 to 95 percent of all adults have ...Read more

What treatment do you suggest, me diagnosed myalgic encephalomyelitis with constant react. Infect. Ebv, cpn, cmv, hhv, etc, myocarditis, tachycardia?

Some gentle advice..: You must have been diagnosed by an md/do. Your case sounds complicated. How does the md who diagnosed you want to treat you? If you want another opinion, see another doctor. That's your right. Answering a question like yours is explicitly not the purpose of this website. For better or worse, our bodies aren't 6-cylinder chevys. You goof with your car, you can always get another one. ...Read more

I have a boil on my bottom which is the size of a 1p coin (2cm) is this treatable at home? If so what treatment can I use? No red skin around boil.

Salt water soaks: You may try salt water soaks but whatever you do, do not try to squeeze or pop it yourself. Take 1 table spoon of salt to a pint (large glass) of warm (not hot) tap water. Soak a wash cloth in it then let it sit on the "boil" for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times each day. This may help. ...Read more

Is a re-activation of EBV common? What causes it? I've had it for about a month and a half. How to treat it?

EBV: Reactivation is not rare, but also not extraordinarily frequent. There is not an obvious means of treatment which is effective although some doctors may try a course of gancyclovir if it recurs often. This will not cure it, but may reduce the duration of a specific episode. Good luck. If you want a full assessment see an infectious diseases expert. ...Read more

How can I treat glandular fever/mono/ebv?

How can I treat glandular fever/mono/ebv?

Rest & good nutrition: There is no special meds for mono. The treatment is supportive & situational. Those who play contact sports or ride horses or bicycles should not do so if they have an enlarged spleen (trauma can lead to rupture). Appropriate rest and proper nutrition should allow the body to heal as fast as possible. In adults, it can take weeks. ...Read more

Could the EBV cause als? And what examination or tests is best to diagnose als? Spinal tap can it help?

No relationship: Ebv is of interest in multiple sclerosis but not als. A neurological exam can demonstrate muscle twitching (fasciculations), weakness and atrophy, associated with highly brisk reflexes. An EMG study can help confirm, but make sure that such problems as hyperthyroidism, lyme disease, muscle disease and other nerve disorders such as multifocal motor neuropathy are excluded. ...Read more

I got EBV over a year ago and I am still experiencing symptoms such as fatigue and visual problems. What could be the reason and how can I treat this?

Ozone--maybe thyroid: The most effective treatment I've found for chronic EBV is autohematogenous ozone therapy. Other effective treatments include hydrogen peroxide infusions, high dose Vitamin C infusions, or colloidal silver (IV and oral). You can find a physician near you who is knowledgeable of these treatments by contacting the American College for Advancement in Medicine (www. ACAM. Org).
Also consider thyroid. ...Read more

What kind of pills or treatment can somebody get for epstein barr virus?

Supportive only: There is no cure to an ebv infection. Supportive management to get you through the infection, is really all we can give someone- this will provide hydration, pain, and fever control.

The potential consequence to ebv- burkitt's lymphoma, is rare and requires chemotherapy. ...Read more

Is akinesia treatable? If yes what treatment should I take? Thanks

Please repost: Please repost and explain what you mean by akinesia. Akinesia usually occurs as result of any neurological condition that reduces movement of the body or a body part despite normal strength and sensation. It's a sign, not a diagnosis.

Is oligospermia (low sperm count) treatable by homeopathy treatment?

Is oligospermia (low sperm count) treatable by homeopathy treatment?

No, but harmless: There are no good randomized clinical studies, where half of a group of men get homeopathic treatment and half get a placebo (fake treatment). Sperm counts change from month to month so if you take a baby Aspirin a day & get a better sperm count the 2nd time is it due to the aspirin? One small study of homeopathy for sperm problems had no placebo group. Expect no side effects, unknown if benefits. ...Read more

There is a new treatment for fibroids called acessa. I was hoping I coul have it done in Canada? I also have a 9 cm cyst on my right ovary and 5 cm on the left. Wondering if that is treatable the same way? :)

There is a new treatment for fibroids called acessa. I was hoping I coul have it done in Canada? I also have a 9 cm cyst on my right ovary and 5 cm on the left. Wondering if that is treatable the same way? :)

Not the same: Accessa sort of liquifies uterine fibroids through thermal ablation. This is not an appropriate treatment for ovarian cysts. It is a newer technology for fibroids with a somewhat mixed clinical results. Widespread adoption has not yet occurred but there are Gyn surgeons who really like it. ...Read more

Is female orgasmic disorder treatable with home remedies?

Is female orgasmic disorder treatable with home remedies?

Maybe: Primary anorgasmia (never had one) vs secondary anorgasmia (stopped having them) is important. Change in hormones, low hormones, bad technique, a hooded clitoris, stress, inhibition and many other things may be causing the problem. Most women have their first orgasm via masturbation. If that is not working either, then its time to get help from your family doc. This can be fixed most of the time! ...Read more

IS THERE`S A PRESENT INFECTIOUS? MY EBV ANTIBODY PANEL: VCA - IGM 43 VCA - IGG 1041 EA - IGG 295 EBNA - IGG 133

Yes, it is recent.: Presence of IGM indicates a recent infection. This type of antibody is released early as this carries five times the blocking sites compared to other antibodies. Presence of IGM thus suggests an ongoing attempt by our immune system to fight a current infection. ...Read more

Can you tell me what can EBV (+ve) mean?

Epstein Barr virus +: A person has been exposed to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). This is the cause of infectious mononucleosis (Mono) and is associated with certain cancers. A POSITIVE blood test (antibody test) only means exposure to the virus but not necessarily active disease. Seroepidemiologic survey indicates that over 95% of adults worldwide are infected with EBV.

If EBV caused a massive reaction for the body to attack its own nerve cells, what diseases are we looking at?

NOT USUALLY MASSIVE: Not sure what you are looking for, but here's my take on ebv. There is a strong relationship to adult ms (99% have had some infection in past, but 95% of normals also). Of course, it can cause infectious mono, and maybe chronic fatigue. Not clear whether in some cases related to cancers, lymphomas (burkitt's), hematological disorders, and rarely acute neurological events (gbs?)-not proven. ...Read more

I was just diagnosed with chronic active ebv. I've had severe symptoms for over 2years. Should I be concerned?

Yes/NIH study: Chronic active EBV infection is a rare and serious condition. Recent treatments include immunomodulators such as interferon gamma, and pre-clinical studies of bortezomib, and valproic acid are promising.

Reduced intensity hematopoetic stem cell transplantation with nondestructive pretreatment is curative.
