I just got my blood results back from ID dr. I was more concerned with my Lyme tests and found out that I have Epstein Barr/Mono. The tests are as follows:

EBV Ab VCA, IgG 248.0
EBV Nuclear Antigen AB, IgG 498.0

Can someone explain this Virus and what the significance of how high they are mean?

I had Neurological Lyme Disease since last August. I knew something was still wrong with me because I still have neuro problems which include a stutter. Those results came back positive as well but the dr wants to deal with this EBV 1st. He is having my family at home all tested as well. He prescribed Famciclovir 3Xs a day.

Hi. Have you learned anything else?

I just got some high numbers, too, not sure what they mean.
