Hi springsjean. Why didn't the doctor test you for Lyme? Did he test you for the other type of Ehrlichiosis also--Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis? Did he test you for the other co-infections Babesiosis, Bartonella, and Mycoplasma? Which lab was used?
Ehrlichiosis is one of the co-infections. It infects the white blood cells. Your result is very positive. I believe it is positive if it is over 1:40 but it could vary by lab. When I get to my computer I will post the symptoms. Many overlap with Lyme.
What dose of Amoxicillin did he prescribe? From what I understand, Doxycycline is usually the first choice to treat Ehrlichiosis. It is very important to see a Lyme knowledgeable doctor. Was this doctor recommended by a Lyme patient?
