    VERY High Levels

    TO WHOMEVER IS READING THIS,

    I HAVE HAD MONO AND HAVE GOTTEN OVER IT. IT HAS BEEN 2 YEARS NOW SINCE I HAD MONO. I JUST RECENTLY GOT A BLOOD TEST DONE AND MY NUMBERS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ELEVATED BUT NOW MORE SO THAN EVER. I WOULD LOVE SOMEONE TO HELP EXPLAIN WHAT THESE NUMBERS MEAN AND WHY THEY MIGHT BE SO HIGH.

    EBV EARLY ANTIGEN Ab IgG 28.2 U/ML

    EBV Ab VCA, IgG >600.0 U/ML

    EBV NUCLEAR ANTIGEN Ab, IgG 445.0 U/ML

    CYTOMEGALOVIRUS (CMV) Ab, IgG >10.00 U/ML

    ALSO MY TSH IS 4.00 I AM WONDERING IF MAYBE THIS IS RELATED SOME HOW.

    MY SYMPTOMS ARE THAT IM ALWAYS TIRED AND I MEAN ALWAYS. I GET FATIGUED VERY EASILY. I AM OVER WEIGHT. I DO HAVE ANXIETY PROBLEMS. I AM NOT DEPRESSED. I DO HAVE ESSENTIAL TREMORS AND THAT RUNS IN THE FAMILY.

    SINCERELY,
    ELIZABETH

    Re: VERY High Levels

    I have been extremely tired for about 8 months now. My numbers are also high. I had several bad viruses last winter. For all I know, I may have had mono. Here is what I have learned from my research:

    IgM is the marker for active infection. If this is high, you definitely have active infection. You don't have that marker listed. The other markers you list have several interpretations. Most of the time, These markers can be high in healthy people, so they don't necessarily indicate the source of your problems. However, some people with chronic infection or reactivated infection will also have high numbers like you list.

    All my numbers are high and the IgM is borderline. I feel like I have terminal cancer! fatigue, unrestful sleep, groggy and drowsy, brain fog, achy, shaky. Its awful. I feel for you! Been trying to rule out other causes and its just frustrating because doctors don't think the EBV isn't significant at all.

    Your TSH is high. I would see an endocrinologist to see if you have hypothyroid. That can also make you very tired. Good Luck to you!
