I just received my test results back from Igenex & they say negative. (posted below) I am hoping someone can help explain what they mean and if I should keep my appointment with a LLMD or give up on the thinking that I have Lyme. I have had NDPH (constant headach) for the past 15 months and also have other Lyme symptoms. Any advice/knowledge would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

You have some positive Lyme bands.

Please keep in mind as well that Lyme is a clinical diagnosis. I would keep my appt. with my LLMD.

Please read the Newbie Links for an explanation of your Igenex bands.

Keep your appt looks like Lyme to me. Go to an expert let them rule it out. You don't want to mess around with it!

Ask a LLMD about getting a SPECT scan of your brain and a CD57 test.

The SPECT scan will tell how your brain is functioning. A regular CAT scan just takes a picture of your brain.

The CD57 will tell how your immune system is functioning.

Find a Lyme support group near where you live.

Remember, Lyme is also known as the GREAT Imitator.

good luck

Yeah - you've got some positive bands.... looks like a positive IGM and a negative IGG... which is how my first 1 or 2 WB turned out. I eventually turned positive on both... welcome to the Scull and Bones club - lol! Really, welcome to the fraternity of Lyme disease he!! on earth club....

I hate this disease.
