In my first question, I left out the Early Antigen reading, so I'm adding it now.
EBV Early Antigen Ab, IgG.......185
EBV Ab, VCA, IgM.................12
EBV Ab VCA, IgG..................2747
EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab, IgG......1202
Eighteen years ago--yes, its been that long--I had a severe viral infection and have not recovered since. Age, 58, run 6 days a week, get acupuncture every two weeks, can eat most things except sugar. Have had every test know to man. Been to see Anthony Komaroff in Boston. Current doc says he can't help me. Wife has exactly the same problems I do.
Which came first, EBV or candida? What do I need to attack to get better, EBV or candida?
Please see the previous question regarding the EBV.
There is little evidence suggesting that treating candida would help with the symptoms. Unless the candida is in the bloodstream (fungemia - which can be evaluated via fungal blood cultures), or infecting other organs, empiric treatment without an appropriate culture is not recommended.
Again, a referral to an infectious disease specialist is recommended.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
