I was told by Dr. C in MO that #41 is significant.  D

Thanks for replys! GOSH! well that would explain my ms like symptoms..

I went to the breakspear hospital to be tested, i cant remember the name of dr who i saw, but said by my symptoms,she thinks i dont have any co infections, just lyme..

 

 

Well again i just got out of the shower. symptoms gone for the moment!, but give it 10 minutes and there be back.

Does lyme symptoms improve from heat?    im sorry for keep bringing up the bath and shower thing, just seems strange why my symptoms go, could it be just bad circulation??

You have a "negative" IGG and a "positive" IGM which is still considered "negative" by CDC standards. However, as many have mentioned, you are positive on important bands. You also have one positive and one IND IGG band, so that's almost 2 out of 5.

My first one was EIA positive, but both completely negative on the IGG and IGM. My second one was almost exactly like yours, and on my third one I was both IGG (6 bands) and IGM (2 bands) positive... making me FINALLY CDC positive.

As you will find out, these tests (while Igenex is one of the best labs) are not very accurate. So your current results along with a clinical presentation should be enough for an informed doctor to diagnose you witth Lyme disease.

Jelaine: What was the time frame between your test that finally gave you a positive result? I have had mine done twice, both were different but neither are positive. How long between testing did you wait? thanks  D

My first test was in August 2001. The test that came back CDC positive was done in October 2001. So, there was a 3 month period in between.
