The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    My blood test results indicate I have post exposure to EBV, CMV, and Parovirus IGG.

    Everything else tested including lyme was negative.

    CMV level - 2.10
    Parovirus - 2.37
    EBV - 3.0

    I can safely safe that majority of my symptoms are caused by these three virus?

    I know CMV and EBV are linked to CFS how about parovirus?

    Thank you

    Hi,
    I don't know about the values of the herpes viruses (others know more about these than me at the moment) but for Parvo that result is probably not something to worry about I would think (though I am not a doctor and you should ask one). My result, which is high, is 20 something. Going off the top of my head (which is not reliable at the moment) I think people with an accute infection often have a result something like 5-8. I think your result probably just suggests that you have immunity to it from having had the infection in the past, which is pretty normal. For interest, here is an article I wrote earlier this year about Parvo B19 and the research that has been done on it and its possible links to ME/CFS:

    Yea I guess. I personally believe that majority of my symptoms are related from viral infection I have. CFS is basically ongoing viral infection in my opinion.
