    Mononucleosis, I got 7 Blood tests so someone please help me understand...

    Hello everyone, over the past 5 months I've had a really bad case of Mono, I have a lot of blood tests to rule everything else out that I'm not going to post but here are all of my mono blood tests. My big questions is the big number changes from 1/28/12 test to the 3/05/12 test. Im just trying to understand the numbers they are pretty confusing.


    1/11/12: Mononucleosis Test, Qual: Positive Abnormal

    EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: 0.3
    EBV Ab VCA, IgG: 5.0
    EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab IgG: >8.0

    12/07/11:
    EBV Ab VCA, IgM: 2.1
    EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: 0.3
    EBV Ab VCA, IgG: 4.1
    EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab IgG: >8.0

    1/28/12
    EBV Ab VCA, IgM: 2.2
    EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: 0.3
    EBV Ab VCA, IgG: 3.8
    EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab IgG: >8.0

    3/05/12
    EBV Ab VCA, IgM: 1.8
    EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: >8.0

    Sorry, I don't know what the blood tests mean.

    To comment on your most recent test:

    3/05/12
    EBV Ab VCA, IgM: 1.8 ---IgM indicates active or recently active infection.
    EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: >8.0 ---This indicates without a doubt infection is currenntly active. This is positive in the early stage of EBV reactivation.

    These are the two you want to see go negative. The other two will be positive forever. Hope this helps!
