Never initially treated for Lyme. Two docs feel my immune system is just not making the antibodies or they are in complexes.
PCR's done through MDL for 4 species of Borrelia. All neg. PCR is hard to get a positive on from blood, but bery specific when you do.
My CD57 is low. My C4a and TGF B1 are very high, indicating innate immune system is on high alert.
I have just been found to have Bartonella. Awaiting species confirmation from NC State. (vet lab there doing major Bartonella research on pets and humans)
I see an awesome doctor now. (LLMD)
I am just now working my way up to optimal doses of the meds for both Lyme and Bartonella.
Have had what seems to be (to me and doctor) herx reactions.
Good info. Thanks for sharing.
