I have my test results in my hands now! My lyme doc was much more positive in person- she said that she just wanted me to understand that my tests were not positive- not that she doesn't think I have Lyme.
The official results are:
IGM: Everything negative except 41kDa +
IGG: Everything negative except 39kDa IND and 41kDA ++
The Igenex test states that just one positive or IND double starred band can be clinically significant, and I have two... Also- I don't have syphillis or gum disease, so that makes the band 41 less likely to be a cross-reaction.
So, I'm definitely going to at least another month of treatment. I'm upping my dosage of BioCidin (the natural antimicrobial), and my doc may start me on artemisan (spelling??) in a couple of weeks if my night sweats etc. don't start to go away. I still have no one to prescribe antiobiotics, but apparently the supplement/meds I'm on are still effective- just slower.
My doc says she wouldn't even bother re-testing, but I'll have to wait and see how I feel before I decide. I think I agree with james et al on that one- if my only other option is to do nothing, than why not treat and see if it does anything.
And +Lyme- thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, I have days where I begin to wonder if my regular doc is right, and there really isn't anything wrong. But most of the time, I agree with you. I'm seeing my regular doc this week, and I am going to see if he can offer any other possibilites or tests I should have done (not that there are many I haven't already had!)
Lymekiller- No, and MRI is one of the few things I haven't had done. I would really like one, for my piece of mind, and I have even had a doctor recommend I get one- but the doctor was a sports med doctor, and so couldn't order it himself. I'm stuck going through my family doctor, who is being a pain in the butt.
Thanks again for all the advice and support. +Lyme- I may not be getting much help from the regular medical community, but everyone here has been wonderful and supportive. As you said- your job isn't to convince me I have Lyme- and I so far, no one has tried to do that. You've all just listened, and told me about your own experiences, and recommendations. So thank you!
