I do not believe I have HSV 2 but the symptoms I have been having are just frustrating and I was very puzzled that I even tested false positive. My PCP also felt that it sounded like I may have caught Epstein Barr Virus and after getting the test done I tested positive IGG but negative IGM although I don’t recall ever having symptoms of EBV in the past. Do you think this may be the case since they are in the same family ? I definitely felt some sort of reaction toward Acyclovir but it was nothing compared to how I felt taking antibiotics. I will be taking the western blot for sure just for one more piece of confirmation. My last question for you is does taking any antivirals affect the confirmatory and western blot test at all?
