seekanswers - I recently had my EBV tested and it was 640 which is a different number from yours. I was told it was extremely elevated. My test didn't have a range on it so I have no idea what the range even is. Mine was also EBV IgG VCA
 
I did have HHV6 done and it was 21.44 with a range of 0-1.1 being normal so I know that one is high. Was your EBV an Elisa test from Quest?

ktp812, I just found a category above the one i listed B4.
Epstein Barr Virus VCA
Antibody (IGM)
EBV Capsid AB IGM is <OR = 0.90 In Range Index

Index Interpretation
<OR = 0.90 Negative
0.91 - 1.09 Equivocal
>OR = 1.10 Positive
Then it says
Epstein Barr Virus VCA
Antibody (IGG)
EBV Capsid AB IGG 5.92 H Index

Index Interpretation

<OR = 0.90 Negative
0.91 - 1.09 Equivocal
>OR = 1.10 Positive

ktp812, I don't know if this means anything to you.
If not I hope someone can tell me what that means.

pa7k, I am interested in hearing more about evtox and the results you have had with it. I have given up on Western Medicine as they have done nothing for me over the past 3 years except keep me sick. Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

@SeekAnswers: Anything above 1.10 is positive so your result is positive.

I have chronic EBV and am currently seeing an infectious disease specialist. My EBV (VCA) IgM is within normal range; however, my EBV-EA is very elevated. I don't know the difference between these tests.

I hope that helps explain a little on your tests and hope you're beginning to feel better. I have had chronic EBV for over 20 yrs and was always told by doctors that there was nothing they could do for me but to treat the symptoms. I'm hopeful for the first time in my life. I am on 1 gram Valtrex 4 times/day. I also have HHV6, a heart condition caused by the chronic EBV, & mycoplasma pneumoniae. I was negative for Lyme, CMV and many other viruses.

Good luck!

Ditch the antivirals. Try Larrea Tridentada. When it works, and I'm willing to bet a lot it will, get on with your life and tell other people. This has helped quite a lot of people with anything in the HHV family. No sense in living like a ghost. Seriously try this.

Hello,
I was diagnosed with lyme disease and EBV back in 2009. I went to a homeopathic doctor for treatment because the antibiotics only made me relapse into a worse state. Once on the homeopathic remedies and herbs and supplements, now 4 years later it is under control. However I still have bouts of chronic fatigue and I seem to catch every flu and virus that comes along. After my second flu this winter I went to the doctors to get multiple tests done. They found my EBV levels were at 535 when they should be under 38. I also had Mycoplasm pneumonia and herpes 1. The doctor had me out of work to rest to get over all this. Its been 4 weeks now and I am back to work full time. I need to nap at lunch time to get through the day and when I get home, I just change my clothes eat, clean up and go to bed. I have been taking anti viral herbs, Lysine, Olive Leaf extract, adrenal supports and homeopathic remedies prescribed by my homeopathic doctor. I am feeling better every day and I am hoping to get to the point, again, where I can exercise, do yoga, walking, etc, and still have energy the next day. It seems now I have to watch evvery activity as to not over do it. When I get 10-12 hours sleep I feel almost normal. Does anyone else have this up and down stuff. I seem better in the spring and summer , then fall comes and I want to hybernate and I get sick alot and the fatigue is very hard to deal with. If it wasnt for my special doctor and the diet, herbs, supplements she has me take, I dont know where I'd be. The Medical Doctors did nothing but tell me to rest. I would have been on disability for weeks and weeks. Thanks to my doc I was only out 2 weeks and one week at part time. The worst thing though is people just dont get the exhaustion we feel. They say, oh everyone gets tired. But not like we do. But I am hopeful that with a good attitude, the right foods and supportives that we can get better. 
Good luck everyone and good health to you!
