Yes, IgG means you were exposed to it at one time in your life and IgM means it is still active in your body now. Were your figures high? Mine were crazy high but all IgG.

The IgM's were super low. The IgG's were high.  I had mono when I was in middle school. My doc said that the numbers stay high forever if you have had mono. Interesting.

My doctor just ran this test on me as well.  He seemed concerned with my numbers, but I haven't see the actual test yet. He's mailing them out to me.   The research I did on this is that roughly 90% of the population between 30 and 40 years of age have positive antibodies to this test.   I really didn't find a lot on information on chronic symptoms from this.  Did anyone else?

I also have high levels of EBV.

The EBV test I had recently was high on both IgM and IgG. Any thing over 120 was positive my Igm was 2630 and my IgG was 1900. I have never had mono and no symptoms from mono. If I am correct that EBV is usually a co-infection of Lyme. I have Lyme, EBV, Candida, Babs, Erich, could be more but this is as far as my LLMD and I got.
Krissy.
Was dx. with Lyme this year but have had it for 10 years.

You are right Krissy.  You can add CMV, HV6 Mycoplasma and CPn.  These are all common with lyme.  The herpes group of viruses reactivate with lyme.

Ok,

So I received my results for the EBV testing.  It was done through Quest.

EBV VCA (Viral Capsid Antigen) IgM: 1.02  (Range 0.91 - 1.09 = Equivocal)

EBV VCA (Viral Capsid Antigen) IgG: 4.06   (Range - > 1.10 = Positive)

EBV Nuclear Antigen (EBNA) IgG: > 5      (Range - > 1.10 = positive)

To my knowledge I never had mononucleosis.   My LLMD is putting me on Valtrex just to make sure that we are fighting everything in my system.  Has anyone else every taking Valtrex for EBV??

I took valcyte for CMV,which is another virus in the herpes family.   Valtrex is the anti viral used for EBV.
