unusual blood results..NEED HELP

I have been to many doctors and had several tests but no one seems to know what is wrong. My symptoms are headaches (all over pressure - feels like an ice cream headache), weight loss of 30 lbs making me exceedingly skinny when I am eating plenty of healthy food, night sweats, extreme fatigue and loss of some cognitive functioning (I have trouble finding the right words). I have diabetes but my blood sugar is fine. I have been checked for thyroid, HIV, hepatitis, Q fever, CT scan of the chest, abdomen and pelvis, mri of abdomen, and MRI of the brain. All of these were negative. The positive tests that I had were the HHV-6,IgG Antibodies Quant were 1:640; EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG was 165; EBV Ab VCA, IgG was 2980; EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab, IgG was 1049 & Parvovirus B19, Human IgG was 5.3 IgM was 0.2. My EBV Acute Infection Antibodies EBV Ab VCA, IgM was 44. So my doctor is telling me that these positive tests only mean that I was previously infected and that is not my problem. So after months of having test after test I still have no answers and the headaches are getting worse and I am almost at the point where I can't go to work because I can't function properly. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: unusual blood results..NEED HELP

Are your headaches worse in the morning? Are you aware of your dreams; if so are they nightmare types or where you are dying; like drowing, choking etc? If so, or you are unaware of dreams, check into sleep apnea. No, one does not have to snore/ be overweight, be male/ be old to have sleep apnea :-)
This would indeed be irrelevant to your blood tests.
Sorry, no clue as to your blood tests.
