First of all the virus is actually EBV not EPV...Ebv stands for the Epstein Barr Virus..My first recommendation would be to read through the wikipedia article on the Virus here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epstein-Barr_virus
Take note that "90–95% of adults have evidence of infection". So it's not something that is specific to certain heredity.
Also, I'm confused as too whether or not your doctor pointed you towards the EBV antibody panel or if you were actually given all your lab results and are analyzing them on your own?
As far as the specific meaning of your EBV panel: it shows you've had a past infection with EBV, the same as most people. The results are unremarkable, as your Doctor should have mentioned.
Also I should add: at one time, a few decades ago, their was speculation that EBV could be the causative agent for fibromiligia and Chronic Fatigue syndrome. This idea has sense been disproved by recent scientific research.
Also, the title of your thread is a bit confusing: "Just diagnosed with EPV"
EBV is not a diagnosis..The test you received just measures a few different anti-bodies that are present after infected with a virus. For example, if you have antibodies for a flu you had a few years ago in your blood, you wouldn't diagnose yourself as having the flu..
My problem with your title is that you go on to say how your doctor DIDN'T give you a diagnosis. I'm confused.
Hello, I would say you're doing pretty much everything possible to prevent chronic EBV. I also come from a family with a history of CFS, and I have seen some pretty strong links to EBV, so I'm a little less likely to say there's no correlation between the two. If you really want some good answers, I would say to go to an Infectious Disease Specialist; they should be able to give you a detailed explanation of how these different things are interrelated.
