Confusing EBV results! Doctor saying he doesn't understand it!

So about 6 months ago I started to develop a low grade fever that has persisted this whole time. I have had random weird rashes, intense headaches, SEVERE fatigue, issues with cognitive function. I had mono when I was in high school (I am now 31 years old) so my Dr ran a bunch of tests. EBV titers were as followed:
VAC IgM: negative
Early antigen igg: 27.5 (high/positive)
VAC IgG: 86.7 (high/positive)
Nuclear Antigen IgG: negative

Dr tested these titers a few times over a series of 2 months. He also tested my CRP quant. Level (infection level) and it went from first test a little high (.7) to 3 weeks later at 10.3!
Mono continued to be negative.
He then did a EBV DNA crp and it was also negative.
My blood cell counts have also been elevated and keep increasing, but I'm sure that has something to do with the infection level in my body.

He diagnosed me with CAEBV, and said to see him in 3 months. I have read up on that, and from what I have seen, this diagnosis is NOT a good thing! I don't know what to think or how to take these, or where to turn to next.

What does the EBB DNA being negative mean, even though the 2 other titers are high (the results don't match up to the titer charts I have seen).

Can anyone please give me some insight and direction on my next move? Should I be worried?

If the VcaIgM and EA UgG are. Both positve then it is a recent or current infection.

Usually it passes In A few months. I would ask the doctor why you have had it so long.  Every one is different.
