lymphocyte typing result

Hi, I've done a lymphocyte typing. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and POTS. What do you think it can mean? I do not see the immunologist in a month.



I would say typical result for ME. Or am I wrong?
Low CD4, CD8, CD56, CD57 (lyme?)
EBV IgG - is this very high? Without IgM normal doctors will not treat, but maybe its required to do even without IgM showing "active" infection.
See this for treatment of EBV and others: https://sites.google.com/site/cfstestingandtreatmentroadmap/
Low IL-2 too (the ranges differ by lab...)

Maybe read this, maybe it fits for you?
If there is no regular active virus it could help, especially if you are a severe (?) patient?

With bad immune system there will not be found an positive IgM because it can't produce it. See Dr. Klimas in Unrest film, about minute >24. She says natural killer cells are not killing the infections but producing inflammation.
Can't start conversation with you, sorry.
Graphic, easier to see. Let's see if somebody gives me some clue as to what is happening in my immune system (and out of curiosity, what does that value mean?).


Thank you.
