Epstein-Barr Virus and Chronic Fatigue

Updated: Sep 23, 2019



A bout of glandular fever can leave a person with chronic fatigue and a long list of ongoing health problems

In 2015, I presented a course for health professionals on the relationship between Glandular Fever and chronic fatigue, sometimes called "Post-Viral Syndrome" or "Tapanui Flu".


New Zealand is in the grips of a silent epidemic of Glandular Fever. Most cases go undiagnosed, usually brushed off as a case of flu, tonsilitis, or a bad tummy upset. For a few people who get glandular fever, the consequences can linger for a lifetime.

For a small number of those who get glandular fever, the consequences can be long-standing and devastating. But this need not be the case. There are things that can be done but there is no "one-size-fits-all".


Why is this not a more compelling medical issue? The cynics among us might argue that the reason this virus is being largely ignored as a health problem is there is currently no vaccine or drug for this nasty viral infection. If a vaccine comes along what's the bet that things will change dramatically!


"You are such a cynic, Gary!"

One of the webinar attendees, Phil Williams of Australia, has written an excellent paper on this topic.
