I have been battling chronic fatigue and lethargy for 4-5 years of my life now. I am only 21 years. I work full time as a certified clinical medical assistant. I have so many aspirations and goals, but my fatigue is becoming so debilitating that I don't know how I am going to be able to keep up with everything at this rate. Some of my other symptoms include ongoing low-grade fevers, malaise and arthralgia, rapid weight gain. My medical history includes history of PE due to unknown origin, iron deficiency anemia, elevated CRP, elevated ESR, positive lupus anticoagulant, and post axial polydactyly of upper and lower extremities bilateral. I've had numerous work-ups: sleep studies, allergy testing, genetic testing, hematology/oncology, rheumatology, thyroid work up with my PCP. So far, no answers. However, one test that stood out to my PCP was my EBV evaluation results as follows:
EBV Capsid, AG, IGG: >750 (normal reference range: 0.0-21.9)
EBV Capsid, AG, IGM: 95.0 (normal reference range: 0.0-43.9)
EBV Nuclear, AG, IGG: 208.0 (normal reference range: 0.0-21.9)
EBV Early (D) AG, IGG: 9.3 (normal reference range: 0.0-10.9)
Is anyone able to interpret these results? My rheumatologist recommends I pursue a referral to a Infectious Disease specialist next. Do you think this might be helpful? THANK YOU!
