I've had 1 bout of CMV since my tx - last oct, a few weeks after the CMV tablets stopped - they think I had an infection lowering my already low immune system and therefore allowing the cmv to take hold.

My symptoms were my creatinine jumped up, i had a general feeling of unwell became rather tired and energyless and breathless. I also had quite a high temp while in hospital. The CMV affected my liver function so I had to have B12 injections for a couple of weeks.

I was told that if i had any headaches or sickness I was to inform them straight away - as CMV can lead to meningtitus, they also kept an eye on my lungs for pneumonia. I didnt have any of the pains your describing Keith - sorry if this hasnt helped!
