In brief: Mono

Infectious mononucleosis (IM) is the best known acute clinical manifestation of EBV.
IM often begins with malaise, headache, and low-grade fever before development of the more specific signs of tonsillitis and/or pharyngitis, cervical lymph node enlargement and tenderness, and moderate to high fever.

In brief: Not these symptoms

EBV doesn't cause things like this.
Almost everybody acquires EBV in childhood or as a young adult, and therefore over 90% of healthy adults have positive tests for it. Except for certain rather rare medical conditions, testing for EBV rarely is helpful. Discuss with your doctor.
