EBV Diagnosis

Hello everyone, was wondering if someone could give me more information about EVB and what some of my tests mean.
A few weeks ago I thought I was coming down with the flu, went to the Dr and he thought so too. I rarely get sick and this was really unusual as how ill I was feeling. I don't ever recall having Mono when I was younger and was never really that sick.
After a couple of weeks of not feeling good he sent me to a specialist for the headaches I was having and that Dr. did a bunch of blood work and the Monospot test came back as positive, he then sent me to a infectious disease specialist.
That Dr. did a bunch more blood testing and I just got the results yesterday and he skimmed over what the tests meant and then what I was to do during recovery.

Can someone please explain some of these tests results and what they mean.

EVB AB VCA, IGM "6"
EBV AB VCA, IGG "2497"
EBV EARLY AG AB, IGG "102"
EBV NUCL, AG. AB, IGG "1980"
