First post here, and an immediate cry for help!
(Ok that’s me overreacting).
Long story short, 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with EBV, and besides its funny nickname (the kissing disease), I’ve sadly come to realise it’s more serious and a longer healing progress then what I would have thought it would be.
Little bit about me for a quick intro: Women elite cyclist road, train about 10-16hours a week whilst working.
The symptoms itself have been ok-ish, besides the first week of fever and flu like symptoms. I’ve been reasonably ok. What’s left now is me
Being a bit more tired than what i’m used to, and my throat feeling like it’s being stabbed.
According to the doctor it’s been in my system for a couple of weeks, but it was at its “peak” when I consulted her. (At least i’m peaking this season😂).
I’ve been off training since the first of Jan and was advised by my sports doctor to lay off until the end of the month!
Now to the question, who else has experienced this? Any tips? Supplements? How long did it stayed in your system?
I know it’s different from everyone, but every bit of help is welcome.
