My doctor had me do an Igenex text and it came back positive. He says I have Lyme disease. I just got the news yesterday.
He says that 60% of his patients have Lyme disease. This seems like a very high ratio (but I know nothing about the disease).
I have a prescription for Antibiotics.
My Dr. is a General Practitioner. I intially went to see him for pain in my left foot.
I'm thinking about getting a second opinion from a rheumatologist.
Now to my questions.
How final is the Igenex test. If it comes back positive does that mean that I for sure have Lyme disease.
Is a rheumatologist who I should see for a second opinion?
Thanks in advance.
