    Hi Kurt,

    ​So I guess the results would read as Igm negative and positive for everything else. They told me it means virus is not active but the symptoms were still there and continue to come and go, although much better almost a year later. My daughter has similar results to mine and she has had a very hard time recovering from the virus.

    Hey Kurt,

    Sorry I can't shed any light on the meaning of blood test results, I'm not very knowledgeable in that way at all. The only thing I know is that my test showed up as positive for EBV at the start of the virus but then as negative thereafter even as the symptoms continued on for an extended period and during recovery.
