I just found out I should get a co-infection test done. They are expensive $500 to $600. Is that how much you all paid? Did insurance cover anything for you?

My doc was singing "all I want for Christmas is my co-infection test" Now it is stuck in my head.
My family and I have been enjoying my life without dairy gluten and soy for many years.

Found out about it in spring of 2009 that I have been living with Lyme for over 8 years. My symptoms of Lyme have been Mini-Strokes/TIA's, Hashimoto's disease, swelling of my liver and kidneys. Anaphylactic reactions to raw apples, raw carrots, and Beef. Allergies to dairy, gluten, and Soy.

My insurance covered most of the cost of the testing, and since the tests were positive, they are also covering the prescription medications for treatment. I am glad I had the coinfection tests done because I think a lot of my symptoms are from them, and not Lyme. And I'm glad we're treating the coinfections, because I've heard many times that treating Lyme without doing so is not effective. Your doctor sounds like fun; mine never sings to me. I'll have to ask him about that at our next appointment.

I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.

My insurance covered it too. Where are you getting the tests done? Igenex is the best lab for co-infection testing.
