Brief Answer:
YOu had an infection caused by EBV in the past!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed your test fully.

This is a test for EBV infection. This commonly manifests as infectious mononucleosis. Infectious mononucleosis has symptoms of sore throat, fever, swollen spleen, fatigue and general malaise. It is transmitted through kissing.

Your results show that you had this infection in the past. There is no need for any treatment at this time.

This is not a test for Lyme's disease.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
