I was given a clinical diagnosis of CFS last May. I'd never really belived it because no testing was done to confirm or deny the dx.... until now.
I've recently been dx'd with Lyme and, my lyme doc being the thorough kind of gal she is, ordered a whole bunch of viral and immunity testing.
This is what came back:
HHV-6 IgG IFA: 1:40H (1:10)
HHV-6 IgM IFA: less than 1:20 Negative
EBV VCA IgG 1.45H (0.0-0.9)
EBV VCA IgM .36 (0-.9)
Immunoglobulins (G, A, M)
IgG 750 (694-1618)
IgA 84 (81-463)
IgM 172 (48-271)
CK, Total 78 (less than or = to 165)
ESR, Westergren 3 (0-20)
Cardio CRP - 7.8 (3.1-10.0 High cardiovascular risk).
IgG Subclass 1 - 297L (382-929)
IgG Subclass 2 - 454 (241-700)
IgG Subclass 3 - 57 (22-178)
IgG Subclass 4 - 9.6 (4.0-86)
Rheumatoid Factor less than 7 (less than 14)
MMH 143 (87-318)
Homocysteine 7.7 (5.4-11.9)
M. Pneumoniae IgM, EIA 51 (less than 770)
M. Pneumoniae IgG, EIA less than or = to .90 (less than or = to .90)
ANA - negative
All other bacterial and/or viral testing (Ig M,A,G) showed absolutely no antibodies at all (CMV, E. Chaffeensis, B. Henslae, B. Quintana, Chlamydia Pneuomniae).
I've read that both EBV and HHV-6 are common causes of CFS. I've also read that IgG1 deficiency is a contributing factor as well.
Is this correct? Do you think this is finally confirmation of my CFS dx? Do you see anything else that I've missed?
