Please forgive me if this has already been discussed. Last year I tested positive for babs microti, which I understand is the most common. So my new LLMD has retested me for microti and Babs WA1, which came out positive. So we will be starting babs treatment soon (thank God!).
I don't know yet what difference it makes to have this add'l babs. Plus, there's hundreds of strains and these are the only 2 I've been tested for. This WA1 sounds relatively new to me, but LLMD says it is becoming more common.
1. I'm assuming the treatment will be the same as if I only had 1 babs. How about symptoms? Do you know if any certain strain has differing symptoms
2. Maybe some of you out there who have tested negative for babs should be tested for the WA1 strain?
I will defer to anyone who knows more than I about this. I just thought I should bring it up since I've never heard of it. Would it make any difference to be tested for any other strains? (of course will ask Doc, but it'll be awhile before I see him again)
