I am a 28 year old woman and I have been ill for more than 2 weeks.... he most annoying symptom in my illness is extreme fatigue which is often keeping me lying in bed... I also constantly feel like my eyes are burning and they feel tired all the time. I have missed several working days and cannot seem to get better.

At first, I also had very bad digestive problems, my intestines felt irritated and I had diharrea for several days in a row, lost 3 kilos and became physically weak. This has gone away for the past 3 days and I am eating almost normally.

I did all possible tests because we thought it might have been a bacteria such as salmonella but all came back negative. My tests show a slight abnormal CMV level and I thought this might be it as someone at my office had been diagnosed with that.

I am supposed to go on holiday this thursday but i still feel the same symptoms in my eyes and feel tired. How long does this last? will I be able to fly on Thursday for 2 weeks? does anyone have experience with this virus and can it be dangerous?
