Does anyone else have EBV virus while trying to taper?

 :(   I think EBV virus might be causing addition brain cog/fog.  Does anyone know?  thankyou.   My brain is so scrambled.    (6 weeks taper, from 3 mg of ativan to 2.75  and according to all the docs, its such a SMALL cut, i shouldn't feel anything bad).   So, i think EBV might actually cause brain fog, badly.

Get tested for the virus and read the numbers yourself as doctors blow off high levels as a past infection. EBV causes numerous symptoms, many are the same as benzo symptoms. It is believed that more than 75% of the population has this virus and that stress, meds, and toxic events can bring it out of dormancy.

I've read that celery juice is really good for EBV.

Kindly,
