Confused by results bc had mono 15 yr ago..
Epstein barr VCA ab (igm) < or = 0.90 epstein virus VCA ab (igg) 3.51
epstein virus (ebna) ab (igg) >5.
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 more
Could epstein barr cause ongoing nausea/vomiting? Raised ALT and enlarged spleen? Ebv IgM positive. Some tiredness.
Lmphocytes 53%, CMV -ve, EBV IgM neg and IgG +ve 9.5 Eu/ml Doctor diagnosed me with EBV. Very tired and swollen lymph nodes for two months. Opinions?
Diagnosis in doubt: No offense to ur doc, but I would want to answer other questions of importance. Your lab tests show indeed u were infected with EBV like 95% of us. What's more important is 'could this be anything else'? For that I might even want a lymph node under the microscope. Sounds like u need relief & I would want an accurate diagnosis before I told u just wait another month or 2. Mono is a teenager's dz. ...Read more

Ebv showing acute new infection IgM 1.3 (had as teen)? Also, Lyme titer pos 3.81 but wb only band 41...Ebv or lyme? Was around deer the wk b4 ill.
Ebv IgM 1.3 IgG 1.5 ea 0.2 na 0.2. Dr states acute/new infection but i was told i had mono as a teen?
Interesting: When the igm is positive it indicates acute new infection. Did you have a blood test as a teen that proves you had mono or was it a clinical (based on symptoms) diagnosis. My best suggestion is to see a chinese medicine practitioner. I have repeated success with chinese medicine clearing this up and helping your body recover. ...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
EBV contageon: EBV is a very common virus and the majority, if tested, will show they have had exposure. You cannot find a high enough hill or a deep enough hole to hide from it, unless you are a non-kissing nun -> passed by saliva and called the 'kissing disease.' EBV syndrome becomes more likely the later in life the exposure to EBV; children may have sublicincal cases. Also there are genetic factors operative ...Read more
