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.

EBV AB VCA, IGG "2497"
EBV NUCL, AG. AB, IGG "1980"
