Yes, it was.. I asked for the test... Initially, my first doctor believed it was a good marker for improvement.. so I wanted to see for myself if it increased since feeling better.. and it did

Congrats! I'm so glad you are feeling better. Are you taking anything else besides the antibiotics like supplements?
Symptoms started in 2003 with very intense panic attacks and anxiety. Also had sound and smell sensitivities. Was in and out of the hospital from 2003-2005. Diagnosed with panic disorder. Took Lexapro for two years and symptoms never got better. Suffered off and on for years.
2007 found an LLMD and was diagnosed with Lyme. WB was negative but had ++ on Lyme specific numbers. I decided to not do treatment because I didn't know enough.
2008 symptoms came back with a vengence. Muscle pain, joint pain, floaters, stiff neck, rib pain, slow thinking, brain fog, couldn't find the right words, etc...
2009 went back to see LLMD. Diagnosed again with Lyme plus co-infections....Babesia and Bartonella.

-Chronic Lyme Disease
-Hashimotos Thyroiditis

-Biaxin 250mg to start (starting slow and working my way up)
-Ultram(muscle/joint pain)
-Thyro Complex 60mg(Thyroid)
-Caproyl(intestinal candidas),Psyllium Powder(intestinal cleansing support),Bentonite Magma(absorbent aid for intestinal detoxification)
-Plus a ton of other supplements

My last results were 15 last week (they dropped from a 19), but doc thiks that drop happened in the month between the time she did the test and had my PICC line put in and I started the abx.
