Today I tested positive with a 1.32 total, but the only reactive band was my 41 kD IgG. I have all the classic sign and symptoms and no PCP can diagnose me with anything solid. I also have a very positive Ebstein Barr. Can anybody help me understand what is going on and what is truth. Thank you for your time and help. I really need somebody to help walk me though what to do next if needed.

Hi Coyote!
Welcome to our forum! I'm sorry that you have had to live with those symptoms, we can really understand what you are going through!

If you haven't yet, please read through our "New to Lyme? Start Here!" thread that sits at the top of the forum. It has a lot of important information, helpful links and pdf's, symptom lists (as Lyme rarely travels alone), a list of questions that you can ask any doc that you may receive treatment for these infections from, and an important post about how to detox when a person has these infections.

Testing positive for band 41 only means that the tail of some kind of spirochete was found - there are only three types of spirochetal infections known, one of which is Lyme disease. Although, having all the classic symptoms of Lyme is diagnostic enough to start treatment for an experienced LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor). Not treating at this point will only lead to the further spread of these infections throughout your body and more damage will be done.

So in my opinion, the next thing you need to do is to find a doc that will treat you for Lyme and other tick-borne infections that you may have. You can choose to use abx or natural medicine for treating these diseases. Many people use both.

For information on finding a LLMD, or a Holistic Practitioner in your area, you can start a new thread titled something like:"Looking for LLMD in the _______ area." Although you will need to enable your email option in your profile in order to receive any recommendations, as we don't allow LLMD's names and contact info to be posted on the forum for several reasons. You can enable your email option in your profile, under 'edit profile'. Be sure to click the submit button to actually save your preference.

For more help in finding a LLMD, you can email our long time member, Dan's Mother at:phassan@optonline.net

You can also email Stephanie at: stephanie@turnthecorner.org You can also go to: www.turnthecorner.org/ if you want to learn a little bit more about Lyme Disease.

You can also go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link: www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74

You will want to find an ILADS (International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society) trained doctor, as ID Docs (Infectious Disease Doctors) believe Lyme is hard to catch and easy to treat, and don't believe in the reality of chronic Lyme. The ILADS site is another great place to read to get you started on your Lyme journey. www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines_clearing_ilads.html

Saw this article and it seemed pertinent to your situation bc of what it says about early detection of 41 alone

Thank you for the link to that article! Although I haven't read the whole things yet, it seems it may have some valuable information!
