Your symptoms are not specific to any one thing. And there are still other possibilities such as hyperparathyroidism that leads to hypercalcemia that can also cause a lot of symptoms.
Have you had any blood work done? This could really help to narrow down possibilities.
Are the Epstein Barr Virus and the "kissing" herpes virus the same?
No. Herpes simplex type 1 (HSV 1) is oral herpes, herpes simplex type 2 (HSV 2) is genital herpes, and Epstein Barre' Virus (EBV) is a different virus than both HSV 1 and 2. There are about 8 different human herpes viruses.
I've had the standard blood work by my physician but nothing's come back as unusual.

They normally do surgery to remove part of the parathyroids. Although the problem can often be corrected through vitamin D supplementation. Supporting the liver and adrenals can also help since these organs are required for the conversion of vitamin D to its active form.
