    Hi everyone,

    I've lost the IgG of EBV, which infected me 12 years ago, starting my M.E. My immunologist said she have never seen a person who had lost IgG.

    Have some of you lost IgG of EBV or of any other virus/bacteria?

    I don't have IgG for any other virus/bacteria.

    I also have lost my igg antibodies to ebv. Apparently its quite common amongst cfs/me and i first read about it in oslers web when cheney and peterson had patients who stopped producing igg antibodies. So much for igg be antibodies forever??

    Im unsure what it means, its possible that these dam viruses are running around doing what they like and the immune system is allowing it??

    cheers!!

    I got tested for Herpes Simplex 1/2 and was negative for IgG, even though I'm pretty sure I had it when I was 6 or so. Myself and everyone else at daycare came down with "cold sores" for a while. I also tested negative for EBV, even though almost everyone has that one.

    The lab initially reported that I tested positive to toxoplasmosis IgM, but negative to IgG. They later changed that to say that both were negative, so who knows.

    Makes ya wonder, doesn't it? Sounds like some dry-labbing to me -- "Oh, she can't have IgM, but no IgG so the data must be wrong. I'll just change it so it looks right...." :rolleyes:

    Have you guys ever had your immunoglobulins tested to see if you have hypogammaglobulinemia? Might that explain disappearing EBV IgG antibodies?

    Hi, I don't have Hypogammaglobulinemia, even if I've lost IGG for EBV.
