Hi
I have positive IGG results for EBV and CMV, but the IGM is negative which means that I have an old infection.

I was IGG positive IGM positive. CMV is also associated with an inverted CD4 CD8 ratio.

Justmatteroftime: your earlier post you said IGM negative, later post you said IGM is Postive...which one is correct?

If its indeed IGM postive, i would say they can cause similiar symptoms as HIV, in some cases cmv causes mono (fever sor throat ..etc) i did extensive searches on ebv and cmv

Unfortunetly i tested for both cmv and ebv and IGG postive with high values and IGM negative.

So not the cause of my symptoms

Probably its CMV..

any neuropathy Pain?
At 27 months post exposure its impossible for the igm to be reactive(some especially with those having strong immune system the transfer from igm igg takes shorter period)

One last thing, many herpes viruses might cross reactive with CMV & EBV igg.

Yes. Peripheral neuropathy mainly in my feet but also hands sometimes. I'm talking about pins and needles, pain and numbness. Ongoing symptoms are excessive sweating. I had to run for a train last week, the weather wasn't particularly hot, but I sweated profusely, mostly from my head and face. Really embarrassing on a crowded train. I still have neck pain, blurred vision, floaters, fatigue and generalized pain. Really fed up with this.

Hello fellows, last week I started to feel discomfort in the right part of my body, I think I might've contracted hepatitis as well. I got tested for hepatitis A and B but not for C, and they both came back negative eight weeks after exposure.

It has been almost 70 days since my exposure (cunnilingus) and I am feeling more and more anxious, because I know that unlike you, I am a carrier of HIV (not HIV positive, because I am not positive about having the virus). I dn't know if I ma going to be able to be tested.
