  • I have been looking the past few weeks on EBV titers and what they mean. I don't think anyone knows. My 11yo dd is sick. Mono negative. EBV positive. She was sick like this in Jan., but not as severe. They said she had EBV titers---they were 106. She only missed maybe 2 days of school with the "cold" symptoms, but missed 1 month of swim team. This time----she is very sick. So far---22 days of school missed. This will be going on week 6 of her symptoms. This past Friday--I asked about her EBV titers and they were over 2000. The Dr knows nothing! We are being referred to Children's---but with just a "different" ped Dr in an adolescent clinic. I want a specialist!!! Maybe she doesn't have CFS. Maybe it's something worse!!
