My doc took a ton of blood last week. She ran another WB. I saw her at the hair salon today and she told me that all IgM's were negative. The past couple of days I have been feeling great. Not just great but normal feeling. Like my old self. I am still on the Doxy for another 3 weeks so I am going to keep taking it. She is sending me all the results in the mail.  She tested me for so many other things too. I will have to post the stuff when it comes in.

Hi baileygirll76.  It is great you are feeling better!  What dose of Doxy are you taking?

Which lab is the Western Blot being done at?  It is important to be tested by a Lyme lab such as IgeneX.  They use more sensitive testing and list more Lyme-specific bands.  Were you ever tested for the co-infections?

I have not been tested for co-infections.  My WB was done at LabCorp.  That is where my first one was done that tested positive on all bands. I am taking 200mg Doxy 2 x a day.  I have about 3 more weeks left. When it is done it will be 8 weeks at 400mg a day.  I won't be taking anything after this is done.
If I were to order an Igenex kit and be tested for everything, do I have to be off antibiotcs? And isn't it expensive? How much for all the tests?

I just got my WB results in the mail. The only IgM is 39. Two are gone. Only one moved to the IgG. Is this good?
