Re: Need help w/EBV results!!

IGG means past infection, as in 99% of the human population
IGM is active infection, yours is negative.
You have to find out the cause of your symptoms. EBV in itself is activated by a bacterial infection such as Lyme disease. Once treated for Lyme etc, the EBV goes back to normal levels.

To Greenmyst,

I do not know what IGG or IGM means. I do know that I was diagnosed with
' Chronic Epsetin Barr Virus ', in June of 04'.

You say that EBV is activated by a bacterial infection or Lyme disease...... ?

So, you say EBV is treated for Lyme disease. I am very interested to know more about this. Like, how is Lyme disease treated ?

Sounds like you may have some answers for me to talk to my Doctors about.

I hope to hear from you,

THANKS,

Gee Gee

PS. I have been wondering.........., if EBV is a Virus, how could it be a
bacterial infection ? How is this tested ?

Hi suz9601,

Just wondering..........., how are you doing now ?

I hope you have gone to a ' Doctor of Infectious Diseases ', who can relate more to your diagnoses of the Epstein Barr Virus.

My Doctor didn't know either, so this is why I seeked to find a specialist,
who knows about virus conditions as well as bacterial ones.

You can read my post about my dealings with the ' Epstein Barr Virus ', if you would like.

If you have any questions that I might answer, just let me know. I only know what to post on this site, by my own experiences.

Later,

Gee Gee

From Gee Gee

I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHERE YOU GOT THIS INFORMATION............, ???
E - Epstein
B - Barr
V- Virus

How can it be bacterial ? I have NEVER heard of EBV being even compared
to Lyme disease. I would love to know how to find out more....,
Gee Gee

Re: Need help w/EBV results!!

Gee GEE,

Sorry I have not replied, I didnt get an email saying anyone replied to me until now..not sure why. Anyway, I am still in the same boat I was in when I originally posted. I still dont know if I have EBV, or strep or waht. I have since tested positive for Lyme disease and am being treated w/abx. Lyme treatment is very complicated. A lot of switching abx and high doses of them. Did you find out anymore about EBV? I still dont know if mine is active or not. I know it isnt a new infection (IGM) as someone stated above, but I have read if your IGG antibodies are very high then it can mean reactivition...?

Take care,
Suz

Re: Need help w/EBV results!!

Hi ! Suz,

Sorry I am just now getting back in touch with you !
You say you don't know if you have the EBV.............,
Have you NOT been to a ' Doctor of Infectious Diseases ? "
My best advice is for you to GO TO ONE !

I went to see my Doctor last Monday, and I find now that I not only have
Chronic Epstein Barr Virus, I also have ' Sjogrens Syndrome ' !!
This is SERIOUS STUFF HERE !

I don't know how old you are, I am fityish, and much to old for this.
I have one of the BEST Doctors in the whole Southern US of A !
And, he tells me that there is nothing he can do for me.........errrrrrrrr

I have had all of this STUFF since June of 04' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I asked him if all of this could re-occur, and he said, ' NO ', not unless you
were a teenager. SO, ' go figure ' ! I guess it depends on your age.

Let me know how things turn out, GOOD I hope !
Take Care,
GG
