when I checked on my 10 year old son before bed he was drenched in sweat. I tested pos for lyme after he was born, he has tested neg twice but through quest.  I have heard some people have night sweats, what would cause it? lyme, babs, or bart?

Not again,

I'm sorry your son is going through that. I have night sweats too and babesia causes it. I pray your son doesn't have this. Did he have any positive bands on his test?

I dont think so. his regular dr had the test done for lyme, they called and said it was neg. I did not think to ask for a copy. they did western blot and eliza(i think that is the name)

Get a copy and see if any bands are positive just to be sure. Did a regular doctor do this or an LLMD?

His regular doctor did the test both times. I just thought that quest did not show bands, i thought it came back pos. or neg,

A Quest WB test will say 'positive' or 'negative', however, it will still report on some of the bands only, some of which are specific to Bb. And it will report many other bands which are not significant

So you really should consider requesting copies of those tests because we can help you note if there are significant reactive bands. Of course, we cannot make the diagnosis, but can maybe help to guide you in the right direction.

Hi not again,

Sorry you are dealing with all this. My vote is to check him out for Babesia.

Best wishes to your family, bablymers mom

I went through about three months of night sweats - these subsided without meds.- I didn't know I had lyme at the time.

I got a copy of my sons tests (from quest) They seem to just say neg. for bart. And neg for Lyme. I do not see any type of bands on them it says igg, and igm neg. 0.90 index neg. unless they did not send me everything.

I don't think Quest sends the bands that were tested. They do not test all the bands that are specific to Lyme. Maybe ask and see if they even use bands at all.

I understand. I wish we wouldn't have to come out of pocket to pay for it. I wish the regular labs would test like they were supposed too!

Hey Not Again, and everyone else: Does not it sound like again's lyme test was just the titer w/ no bands -- which, correct me if I'm wrong, means it was the Eliza? And isn't the Eliza false negative in close to 60% of those tested.

To me -- the current tests are disasterous and border on negligence!

Lyme,

Good catch! That's what it looks like to me too. I wish they would throw the Elisa out altogether.

Well that makes me mad!!! I told them I did not want the Elisa test. I told them I wanted the other one, and they said they were not going to do the Elisa again because they had done that one months ago!! They told me they were doing the other test.

After speaking with my sons doctor and lab, I was able to go today and have a western blot done (no Elisa this time). I made sure it was the westernblot that they ordered. So I will keep my fingers crossed! Using a different lab this time.

Its Babesia-I had awful night sweats for a long time and once I finally got diagnosted and started on Mepron they went away after the first few doses! It was the biggest relief when they stopped. Good luck

Lyme is passed through the placenta. Also through breast milk...but little boys are in the highest % of people getting infected 5-12, becuase they play ourside. So don't blame yourself.
My 6 year old has gotten it many times as well.
But the bed sweats...yes very common with lyme. I only had lyme and bart. And I would get so wet and wake up soaked and freezing.
But most of the times the bed was really damp...and there was like a ring around where I slept.
I would have his blood sent to IGENEX and check for co-infections as well. Just so you know what you are up against.
Also...get a cool easy to use thermometer, the ones that you put in the ear. And check that before he goes to bed.
Also...get a note book and everytime you notice something...write it down and date it.
Also pay close attention to what he says....little stuff...like his legs hurt....tired...trouble sleeping..
And be very careful about other signs such a trouble in school....cognitive problems. Sort of gazing...
Or as simple as him resting his head on his desk at school.
It is the little things...that all add up to one big problem.

Quest blood test are at best...PRIMITIVE and have not been updated in over 40 years.
Not are not reliable.
Everyone comes back a false negative with Quest. And this is because the CDC has not updated it.
There for there is no lyme outbreak in the country.
Lyme is a political battle now.
