Hi -
I have been suffering with a multitude of symptoms for the past 8 months or so.  I have tested negative for lymes with the Quest test 3 times. 
I decided to have the IgeneX test done.  It came back stamped "negative" so I just tried to put lymes out of my mind.  I was feeling good for a while and then starting having symtpoms again.  I pulled out my IgeneX results to have another look.  On the IgG test band **41kDa was +.  On the IgM test badn **41kDa was "IND".
Does this mean it's possible that I may have lymes? 
Thanks for your help!!

Also you should get a cd-57 test this test measures cd-57 the killer cells of your immune system. which are low in lyme and aids patients only. it will be low after about a year of infection.
Another test gaining popularity amongst physicians treating Lyme patients one of the antigen tests, CD-57. For information on the use of the test Lyme patients, please read Long-Term Decrease in CD-57 Lymphocyte Subset in Patients with Chronic Lyme by Stricker, Burrascano and Winger. Your physician can order the Stricker NK Panel CD-57 from Labcorp (who recently purchased IDL, the lab that developed this particular test). If your physician or lab has questions about this test, they can call LabCorp at 510-635-4555.
In the begining there was no Lyme. And the line is faded not showing where it came in. I became a new Mother and my Lyme decided to show itself. They said my blood tests were normal nothing was wrong. My swollen elephant like knee and finger and the unbelieveable back pain was just low vitamin D. I had a butterfly rash years before. When I told the rheumatologist I had the butterfly rash he said a key sentence. A butterfly rash is only present in lupus or Lyme disease. Well lupus pain is not in the back. i finally realized all the warning signs I had before. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. Now I pressed on. To a Lyme doc, after a nice run around and a lot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recomendation to counceling, He said Veronica this is Lyme and I am going to treat you. Now he knows and I know, Lets get it on paper. Getting the Flow Cytometry test. What kept me pressing on in the face of such amazing and eye opening adversidy is the baby! I had Lyme while I was pregnant Luckily I know I was not infected while pregnant. She is 19 months now and healthy. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica.
P.S We are the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad. Backwards . Alice in wonderland.
