My LLMD just diagnosed me w/ bart when he looked at my ankles and feet, along w/ the red spots all over my lower leg. Altho he said the Quest tests for co-infections are worthless, he ordered some for bart, babs, erlich, rocky mt, etc, at my request since my ins will pay. He said otherwise, I'd need about
$1500 to get a good co-panel from Igenex and I just don't have it.
3 whiteroses, because of my own bart diag, I'd really like to know which of your symptoms he recognized as bart, as opposed to only lyme? Can you please tell us?
And others of you above, can you please tell me the same about you?
