Hi There,

I recently had an Epstein Barr Virus Antibody Panel done, in which the interpretation was "No definitive interpretation can be made. This specimen exhibits an unusual antibody profile". I did a number of searches, as well, but, couldn't find someone with my results. Here are my results:

EBV Viral Capsid AG (VCA) AB (IGM ) < 36.00 (Range: <36 Negative) - Negative Result
EBV Viral Capsid AG (VCA) AB (IGG) , 18.00 (Range: : <18 Negative) - Negative Result
EBV Nuclear AG (EBNA) AB (IGG) >600 H (Range: >21.99 Positive) - Positive Result

I have never been diagnosed with mono or experienced severe mono symptoms, however, I have suffered from severe fatigue for quite some time now. I have so many questions, but, I would start with the basics and regards to what this means.

Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time out of your day to help me!

Jackson, I am not an expert on this but it looks like the one test is positive for EBV, not for a recent infection, but a past infection. The IgM antibodies would be positive for a more recent infection.

Did you ask your doctor for an interpretation? They should do that for you and give you their opinion.
Sjogrens syndrome 2/15 via lip biopsy: Seronegative RA , fibromyalgia
colitis-resection 11/10, hashimoto's thyroiditis, morphea, GERD
Meds: plaquenil, synthroid, Januvia, nexium, restasis, estrogen patch, prometrium, VSL #3, evening primrose oil, Omega 3 supplement-Maxi Tears.
