I don't know if my NP knew what to draw for, so he drew for more extensive Western Blot Test for Lyme's and another test that has the FISH and co infection test in it. Of course I had to pay out of pocket, hopefully my insurance will reimbuse me. I hope these test will show more information or different info from my other WB test that showed two bands reactive 23, and 41 and a past infection of chlamydophila pneumoniae. My test says if you have 5 of more bands of the 10 specific bands are considered positive for the anitbody to B. Burgdorferi, but I only have one and the other band falls under Lyme Disease AB (IGM) and it says under this catorgory, if you have 2 or more of the specific 3 bands are considered positive for antibody B. Bugdorferi. so I only have one of each, I can't wait for a LLMD to tell me what's going on and for my test results for Igenics to come in. What's the turn around time does anyone know?
My symptoms are all gut related and today was a terrible, pooped my pants while driving. You can laugh b/c I do, but it's the worst feeling of hopelessness ever! The pain is so intense and terrible. I read a good article someone posted her about
bells palsy of the gut or Lyme gut relation. Thank you for whoever posted that, I'm not crazy, I know there're more than ulcertivie colitis going on. My GI just want to lump me in that group and show anti inflammatories down my mouth or immunosurppressants. I need answers and I need help!
GOD's love to us all. Happy Thanksgiving.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild") UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics, not much better. Supplements: Threelac, multi, iron,Allimed Allicin, Apple Cider Vinegar, very low yeast/sugar/wheat No UC meds at this time.
