What is IgG CMV blood test and what do results say about my health? Can it be indicative of lupus or another infection, disease, disorder, etc.?
Well: A positive test for CMV ( cytomegalovirus) IgG indicates that a person was infected with CMV at some time during their life but the IgG test cannot determine when a person was infected. It is a common virus that is usually harmless. However the immunosuppressed can become quite ill. Most people don't even know they have had it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cmv IgG positive CMV IgM postive , all CMV infectious disease blood tests are postitive. Liver enzymes slight elevated , what do I have? Cmv is what
CMV: Is cytomegalovirus and is similar to mono. It is causing the positive blood tests and the elevated liver enzymes. It is very common. You will recover. In the meantime, I do suggest seeing an acupuncturist and chinese medicine practitioner as it can really help your body recover faster. ...Read more
Yes,usually no prob.: CMV is in the herpes family & many viruses in that family, like herpes simplex, Epstein Barr virus, chickenpox, HHV 6 & CMV infect virtually everyone & live in our bodies forever. For those with a healthy immune system this is not a problem as our bodies can keep them in a inactive state where they do not cause problems. However, people who are immunocomprised may develop chronic active infection. ...Read more
Positive EBV and CMV (no igg). I read this cant be cause of my 3 month long body aches, tons of tests and don't know where else to turn, advice?
EBV & CMV: Both are from the family of herpes viruses and remain dormant in your body forever.CMV causes no problems unless you are immunocompromised.or pregnant. EBV is known for causing fatigue and prolonged recovery, from weeks to months. There is no specific treatment. Recommend drinking fluids to stay hydrated, getting plenty of rest, & taking over-the-counter medications for pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cmv antibody IgG test result-38, test said "current vs. prior exposure unclear" im 40 yrs., body aches for 3 mos., should i request IgM test too?
Sorry - wrong track: I'm concerned we are on the 'wrong track' here. CMV is not really a major problem for a 'normal' patient. I think your lab testing and evaluation should concentrate on different possibilities. Have you had muscle enzyme testing? Thyroid? Lyme? Rheumatological tests? Evaluation of medications? Almost everyone has been exposed to CMV -so it's no wonder your IgG is positive. IgM would have no value. ...Read more
Im positive for ebv/cmv simultaneously. I dont have active infection, but have body aches fatigue, any way to know how recently was exposed?
In general sense: Only in a general sense. If you have IgM antibody for either CMV or EBV, then the infection was relatively recent. If IgM is negative and IgG is positive then the infection was in the past. As everyone's transition from IgM to IgG varies, more specific timing of the infection is not possible. ...Read more
Help with blood results: EBV VCA IgG >8.0, EBV IgM neg. CMV antibody IgG 38, EBV NA antibody >8.0. Can it explain my body aches? Why or why not?
Old infection: with EBV is the pattern of IgG positive (including NA) and IgM negative. I assume the CMV which is a different infection is also the IgG? If so, both are old infections and do not usually explain your current symptoms. This is a pattern that shows immunity to these infections. Look for other causes. ...Read more
Positive results for cmv, igg, ebv, doc says not active infection, but currently have fatigue/body aches. How serious is it? scared i wont get better
Previous infection: All a positive IGG tells us is that you have been exposed to these 2 viruses in the past and your body has mounted an effective immune response. IGM would indicate an ACTIVE infection. Fatigue and body aches is likely not coming from either of these viruses but from another cause - viral, inflammation, deconditioning, poor sleep, poor diet, etc... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
