Example text

Some of these antibodies, specifically those against the virus’s surface or capsid, remain in the body forever so their levels can be high, even in healthy people who had the virus as children whether they knew it or not. So testing for these antibodies isn’t a very useful way to assess a patient with chronic fatigue and prior evidence of infection. In contrast, it does make sense to test for antibodies against the EBV’s early antigen (EA), a material released by the virus when it is active and replicating.

Since it’s the 1950s, Freudian thinking has recently swept the United States. The patient is the child of a hardworking, upwardly mobile Jewish couple. The doctor meets with the family and tells them there is nothing wrong with their child—that it is all in his or her head. Psychoanalysis begins, and the child becomes more and more physically twisted. Since the problem is not psychological, nothing results, and eventually the child becomes wheelchair bound. As I discussed earlier, torsion dystonia was a “nothing wrong” syndrome in the 1950s.

It’s important to know that people with chronic fatigue rarely have very elevated levels of antibodies against early antigen—results that would, indeed, suggest chronic EBV infection. And, in my experience, even if that test is inconclusive, a more sensitive test that looks for the virus itself (known as the polymerase 38 YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE REAL chain reaction, or PCR), rather than for antibodies reacting to its presence, has never been positive. With low levels of antibodies against early antigen and negative PCR testing for EBV, our current understanding is that people with chronic fatigue don’t have reactivated EBV.
