I was diagnosed with mono after going to the doctor for feeling dizzy. The doctor explained that EBV re-activated (Positive IgG, negotiable IgM and positive EBNA). I am no longer dizzy, but have occasional numbness/tingling in my hands. It has only been a few days and I am reading that it is common in EBV relapse. Anyone else with similar experiences?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Relapse is seen in Infectious mononucleosis, as suggested by your doctor. If the relapses are recurrent, it is not good and the underlying causative factor precipitating relapse should be looked into. Get started on treatment for the relapse at the earliest, and discuss with your treating doctor/infectious disease specialist about prophylactic treatment to prevent relapses. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/infectious disease specialist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
