HSV CONCERN: Can you please discuss my result?

So recently I have taken a blood test from the Labcorp. Since my doctor is busy, I came here to ask.

http://tinypic.com/r/a1ihk5/9

For HSV, IgM I/II Combination is 1.16 high when positive is >1.09.

For HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec and HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec, it says <.91 and saying
Note: Negative indicates no antibodies detected to HSV-2. Equivocal may suggest early infection.  If                 clinically appropriate, retest at later date. Positive indicates antibodies detected to HSV-2.

PLEASE HELP; I am freaking out... :(

So your igg was negative and your igm was slightly positive. This is very common and igm tests are notoriously inaccurate and false positives are thr problem. Such a problem in fact that not std expert recommends igm for hdv in adults.
Completely disreguard the igm results they are meaningless.
