A physical exam and blood tests are indicated. Orthostatic bp measurement also a good idea. Good luck. ...Read more

What could be causing my dizziness, gas, stomach churning? The dizziness is what scares me. Not sure if is anxiety, a virus, or something more serio
Positive for Epstein Barr virus, negative mri and neurological exam, numbness dizziness palps 7 months. Not ms?
No, but what is it?:
I'd expect MS to have a positive MRI and neurologic findings. The question is what IS the cause. Most people have EBV in their bodies; it's unlikely to cause this. I would strongly consider other infections including Lyme, Babesia and Bartonella as well as toxins including lead, mercury, aluminum, glyphosate etc. See integrative Dr. And http://tinyurl.

I had a stomach virus for a week. Had IV fluids but I am still dizzy all the time. Could I still be dehydrated?
Possibly: If you're thirsty, or if you feel as if you have a hangover, you may very well still be dehydrated. Your tongue should be moist and shiny.

If this is not your situation, see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
With lupus, is it normal 2 flare with a simple virus? I have stomach virus &have mild sharp chest pains, jt pains, dizziness, etc like I do w/flares.

Over the years a substance called freunds adjuvant which is developed from infectious protein can stimulate immune reaction better. ...Read more

Dizzy, hearing loss: Those issues may be somewhat unrelated to mononucleosis. If you had upper respiratory symptoms with the mono, then may be related.
