Does my blood work show a chronic EBV infection?

Going back to June 2015, my IgM has been high as has the Nuclear Antigen. This is my second time with an EBV infection. I first had mono in 2011 when I was 38 and 39 years old. Now I'm 44 and seem to have had mono for well over a year now. I don't feel as poorly as I did the first time, but neither do I feel particularly well. I go to work and get by, but I can no longer exercise, and anytime I can manage it on the weekends, I get an hour or two nap in. My results since June 2015 are copied in below. Hopefully the formatting doesn't get messed up. My doctor's office is recommending that I see an infectious disease doctor. Do folks think that would be helpful. I'm not sure they have a magic wand for this either.
