Lyme Titer Test
Then it's not Lyme: Lyme disease can be tricky -and you want to make sure you see someone like an Infectious Diseases doctor who knows how to treat it. The diagnosis is actually based on clinical findings, and the lab testing is generally 'supportive'. Since you're Western blot is negative, then it's very unlikely you have Lyme. There are other diseases that could cause 'Lyme-like' symptoms -and good to get evaluated ...Read more

Ebv panel. Ebv nuc antigen igg=157, early ag igg=12.7, EBV VCA igg=112, EBV VCA igm=10.6. Please explain. Concerned about spleen. Symp=fatigue/fog?
? Active infection: It's impossible for me to answer with certainty since i don't know the normal ranges your lab uses. If early ag & vca igm are elevated above normal this indicates active ebv infection.I don't know if it is acute or chronic without knowing your history. If chronic i see that as a sign of poor immune function.Immune-boosting herbs/supplements & IV vit c drips may help, but find why immunity is poor. ...Read more
2009- ELISA HIV test- positive, western blot- neg. 2010-oraquick negative. 2014- elisa-indeterminate wb- neg. Low risk for hiv. Could I have lupus?
Not a test for lupus: The HIV test is not a test for lupus. What's clear is that you don't have hiv. You'll never know why your elisa was positive and then indeterminate, and it's not worth investigating. False positive elisas are not uncommon; that's why they have to be confirmed with western blot. ...Read more

Had EBV test came back EBV nuc IgG ser qi eia positive and EBV vac IgG eia postive. Ebv capsid IgM eia negative. I'm so tired what do this mean?
Makes perfect sense: Igm antibodies rise only during the actual, acute infection. They then fade away and are replaced by the various igg antibodies, which are the ones that provide lifetime protection against the same strain of the virus. So your numbers are consistent with the fact you had mono years ago. There is no igm, and positive igg levels. So you are immune and do not currently have mono. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How about it?: Up to a quarter of women your age have an ANA (immunofluorescent antibody) at a low titer like yours with a speckled pattern. If there's a question of whether you have lupus or one of its relatives, it's a piece of information to note and file for future reference. A negative ANA would rule several things out. Your result proves nothing positive. Best wishes. ...Read more
