Understandably, you have a lot of questions and you are right to be concerned whether or not you have Lyme disease. about
taking Silver, knotweed, etc, all that is not important at this point. To take a bunch of stuff and hope your symptoms go away isn't the way to go about
treating Lyme disease (assuming you have it).
If you really want to get to the bottom of this, the best thing you can do is make an appointment with a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD) or a Lyme Literate Naturopathic Doctor (LLND) and let him/her look over your test results. Did your GP do those tests or did you see and LLMD? If you want to know for sure whether or not you have Lyme disease, see a LLMD because no other doctor is qualified to diagnose AND treat this disease. The fact that you were diagnosed by some doctor is fine, but what's he going to do about
it? Nothing, because he doesn't have the experience or qualifications to treat Lyme disease.
By the way, yes, many of your symptoms are similar to Lyme disease and co-infections, and the fact that you think you were bit by a tick (or more than one) is pretty good evidence that you may have Lyme disease, especially in light of your Igenex test results.
Make an appointment to see an LLMD and he/she will help you get to the bottom of this. Sorry for all of the suffering you are going through. You can beat this disease, but you need to see a qualified LLMD to help you do it.
