I had a Elsa test a year or more ago that I spent nearly $1,000 on my doc in Michigan said I had 5 out of 10 and 6 out of 10 on two seperate test that showed I had Lyme's. I have done over 6months straight of antbiotics making my ulcertive colitis worse. My last antibiotics was bicillin which I did for 15 weeks straight every week of intermuscular injections. My current doc said I don't have Lyme's. Please respond back with your thoughts or suggestions. My doc thought maybe my UC was Lyme's but it has only gotten worse not better with all the antbiotics. The only time I felt great is when I had a Rocephin shot and my symtoms went away for one day and they it all came back. My doc said it was a "fluke" Rocephin had nothing to do with clearing up my UC.
The results were
