In brief: Chronic fatigue
Although some people with cfs have have some antibodies suggesting recent ebv infection, most do not.

In brief: EBV may progress
Ebv is not the cause of cfids/me, however, about 5% of active ebv mononucleosis cases progress to become cfids/me.

In brief: Many things
This is multifactorial and requires a csi like approach for diagnosis and treatment.
Treatment should focus on adequate sleep patterns, hormone balance, treatment of chronic infections, rethinking nutrition and excercise.
