I had a copy of my lab results:

CD-57 Absolute was 93
Mycoplasma pneumoniae was high at 173

Everything else seemed normal(still have not got results from Igenex)

Does this make any sense to anyone?

Thanks JunkYardWilly! Didn't know how low was considered low when it comes to Lyme.

Just wanted to share something I found while looking up Mycoplasma

Guess this is why the dr tested for this:


As
many as 75% of Lyme disease
patients appear to have
Mycoplasma infections, and yet
Mycoplasma is often overlooked
in the diagnosis and
treatment of chronic Lyme disease,
neurodegenerative diseases,
and many other chronic
illnesses lacking clear origins.
Even more startling was
the finding that of the patients
infected with Borrelia, over
50% of the patients had the M.
fermentans infection.
Approximately 23% carried M.
pneumoniae.

I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.

Wow....my CD57 Absolute for Lyme was 119.  High.  Not indicitive for Lyme, but have the symptoms & a few positive bands. Interesting.
