i got diagnosed in late august... i had symptoms for  month before diagnosis.. anyway, for the past month, my mother has been experiencing what she explains as a "rocking" feeling.. its not really dizziness..she feels like her body is rocking back and forth.. her ears also sometimes feel "full"..this comes and goes...
tomorrow she is going for an MRI and she is getting a vertigo type test from the ENT.. anyways, the reason i write this is because I have seen people who have had vertigo issues and later find out its lyme..
is there anyway she can get tested through Igenex without going to an LLMD? I feel it is dumb to get a regular lyme test if we want to know the truth..

Yes. You can get the lab kit from igenex. Your mom needs to take the kit to someone who can draw her blood. Then send it to igenex for testing. Go to the website for the lab and it will walk you through how to get the kit. Good luck
