International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Our daughter has ME and has had non stop recurrent viral episodes. Recent bloods show

    Epstein Barr VCA IgG 223 U/ml , positive result > = 20 U/ml
    Epstein Barr EBNA IGG 34 U/ml, positive result > = 20 U/ml

    Epstein Barr VCA IgM <20 U/ml , borderline 20-39 U/ml

    Can any medics or scientists advise, she has been very unwell for 7 weeks all the symptoms of glandular fever , do these results show glandular fever? Bloods only taken 4 weeks in. Is it correct to say they show current active Epstein Barr infection and previous infection and borderline glandular or ? I don't want to say glandular fever if that is not correct.

    Hopefully this will help. From here: https://labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/ebv/tab/test/#what

    Unfortunately, without the EAD -IgG it's hard to say if this is past or current infection. FWIW, I think you're right and it's both -- a recurring infection. But are you sure you don't have that last value?

    I'm not a physician and this should not be taken as medical advice.
