My wife and I were around a child that has fifths disease, we went to our Dr. and she had a blood test for parvovirus B19. The initial results were good, with high IGG and IGM numbers. We then went for another blood test a few weeks later and the results changed, with the IGM numbers going from 3.3 to 1.1. This was a cause for concern for our Dr. Does anyone know what these numbers mean? We now have to go for a consult with a specialist and have to do a level 2 ultrasound. No one will tell us why we have to do all of this now. We just want to know what the numbers mean. Thanks
