I think chronic fatigue is a common comorbidity or associated syndrome of complex regional pain syndrome (reflex sympathetic dystrophy, causalgia), rather than a cause. Sympathetic involvement may be the common link; hopefully an expert in both conditions could contribute more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Highly improbable: Hpv infections present with few if any symptoms. Those that someone with hpv experiences are associated with the problems that they cause such as genital warts or cancer, although these conditions themselves often go unnoticed with no symptoms as well.

Is it normal for a reactivation of Epstein-Barr (and associated chronic fatigue) to last >12 months? Or can this be caused by something else?

Most of these, often disabled, improved in two years. Some have periodic reactivation or chronic symptoms. Lots of variations seen here. ...Read more
