Hi there,
What symptoms are you having? An antibody test only tests whether you have been exposed or ever had herpes virus. It is helpful, but does not diagnose a specific outbreak. It is possible to be positive and not recall any previous symptoms.  Many times, symptoms are so mild that people mistake them for something else.  However, it's also possible to have a false positive .Do consult your doctor who had advised you this test. Do keep me posted with more queries.
Best luck and regards!
