I was trying to explain to someone that my EBV antibody results indicate something although I'm not sure whether the something is an autoimmune problem or a chronic viral infection. (I lean towards the former because antivirals did nothing for me, but I really don't know for sure.) Anyway the conversation got me thinking about my antibody levels. I was tested 4 times in 2015 for: VCA IGG VCA IGM EA IGG NA IGG All of them came back positive (EA came back equivocal on the 2nd test but positive on the other 3). All of those antibodies were tested again in 2017 and all 4 came back positive again at that time. Two additional tests were run at the same time: LOG 10 EBV DNA QNT EBV BY PCR, QUANT Both of the last two tests came back negative, so there is no detectable virus in my blood. The thing that, apparently, is odd is that the VCA IGM never dropped back to normal/negative. So I'm wondering if it's truly strange that I perpetually test positive for all 4 antibodies? (The virologist thought that could only happen if I were being repeatedly re-exposed, which has not been happening.) When I looked at lab tests online, I notice that none of their example results show all positive. Could this be a slightly more solid indication of an autoimmune issue since it is not a typical viral infection set of results?
