EBV Panel Question - Don't have a clue

So, I just received some results. Opinions are greatly appreciated!

Never even KNEW was had ever had this, although do have FMS and have had Lyme with Babesiosis.

VCA 1gG 1:160
VCA IgM <1:10
EA IgG <1:10
EBNA IgG >=1:80

Dr circled some and said, you've had a past infection. However, the VCA IgM showed + at Primary and +/- for Acute and Reactivation. VCA IgG showed +/- for Primary and + for Acute, Past and Reactivation. EA IgG showed +/- for Primary, + for Active, - for Past, and +/- for Reactivation. EBNA IgG showed - for Primary, +/- for Acute, + for Past, and + for Reactivation.

Having been through Western Blot testing for Lyme Disease and knowing how things line up with IgG and IgM, am very leery at what I'm seeing versus what he said.

It may be helpful to check out this website.

I don't know if it's true but I've heard that the titer ranges may vary between labs, so it may be tricky to compare what is high vs. low.
