Hi everyone, I would really appreciate it if someone could shed some light on my most recent blood test results. I won't be able to meet my doctor in a few weeks, and I would like to know the significance of my recent tests. Here are the numbers that kept me awake at night: EBV - after six months taking famcyclovir 500mg 4 times a day, my numbers are even higher than they have been before, some of them totally off the charts!: EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG: 16.9 high (normal range: 0.0 - 8.9 U/ml) EBV Ab VCA, IgG: 71.8 high (normal range: 0.0 - 18.0 U/ml) EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab, IgG: 27.2 high (normal range: 0.0 - 18.0 U/ml) The only one that came negative was the EBV Ab VCA, Igm: <36.0 (negative) Then there was the HHV6 antibodies, also higher than they have been before (even after courses of Valcyte): HHV6 IgG Antibodies: 3.32 high (negative <0.76; positive >0.99) And here's the kicker, a new number that's terrifying me, first time that it appears in any of my blood tests: IgA Subclass 2: 91.7 high (normal range: 11.6 - 78.5 mg/dl) All I have read about high levels of IgA2 is just terrifying. Can anyone with some knowledge on this matter please let me know the implications of this? Is this normal for CFS patients? Could it be related to the fact that I have been taking oxymatrine/Equilibrant for the last month? (I know it can increase auto-immune issues in some people). I don't want to say that I'm freaking out, but I'm freaking out. What now? What else now? Overall, I feel extremely frustrated and disheartened that after starting treatment in July 2013, not only I have not improved a bit, but it looks like my tests show a worsening of my condition. As many of you know, I still work, despite my limitations (I have no choice). Today I'm so disheartened I just wanted to stay in bed, and not get out at all. Any advice would be more than welcome. PS: as suggested by a senior member of the boards, I wanted to tag @SOC in case she could provide some advice.
