Can anyone interpret Epstein Barr results for me?

I was initially seen by a rheumatologist after experiencing severe fatigue and dizziness. My GP did blood work and my ANA was high. As part of the blood work, the Rheum did an Epstein Barr test in Feb. of 2011. I had a repeat in July and again this month. The results are as follows:
Feb. July Dec
EBV EARLY AG(EA,DIF) 1.33 1.31 1.33
EBV NUCLEAR AG 2.51 2.75 2.97
EBV VCA IGG AB >3.50 >3.50 >3.50
EBV VCA IGM AB 0.00 0.11 0.59

Do these results indicate I am getting better? Worse? What do they mean? Thanks so much?
She seems to just want to diagnose me with fibromyalgia and chronic fatique syndrome. All my other bloodwork is normal limits except the MCV which is 99.3. I can't figure out if I have an active infection or if this just indicates I had it in the past. Thanks for your help.
