On 3/27 I started to feel like I was coming down with something. I was tachycardic and having bad heart palpitations. I felt not myself and felt my body was at war.

I had mono spot done on 3/28 which was negative.

Only symptoms I have is that I feel very fatigued and feel drained of energy. No fever. No chills. No sore throat. No vomiting.

I feel a little better but still EXTREMELY FATIGUED.

I logged onto my health chart for my local hospital and saw EBV tests came back and they are as follows:

EBV Early Antigen IgG ab - negative
EBV Capsid ag IgM ab - negative
EBV Nuclear ag ab - 389
EBV Capsid ag IgG ab - 254

Any idea what this means in terms of severity, duration etc? Thank you!

The epstein barr virus serology report you stated is negative. The last two antibody titres need to be correlated with the cut off titres of the lab for a positive result as different labs have different cut off values. Upload the lab result if possible.
