I have been diagnosed with Epstein-Barr virus and I have it now for 3 years. I cannot take the pain any more. Every 3 months i do blood tests and it keeps on showing positive. There must be something that is causing this virus . Please can you help ?
Given your description, I must assume that the blood tests you described detected anti-EBV antibodies in your blood. If the antibodies are from the class of "IgG" antibodies, that is normal and means that youâve overcome the infection. But if anti-EBV antibodies are from the "IgM-class", then this indicates that the virus is still present in the body. You may consult an infectologist for an expert opinion.
