I'm new, so please forgive me if this was discusssed as I tried to look back but only found a few threads on this and not sure how to read my western blot results as well as what direction to go to. I'm stuck and overwhelmed with all I'm learning. Thanks for your kindness and willingness to share and help.
about 18 months ago my new internist diganoised me with thryroid issue, Hismotos disease. At that time, I told him I had FM for about 19 years. After meeting me for several visits, he said... you know.. I really think you have Lymes and I think you should get tested. ($250 to IgenX lab) I said.. no I have FM and know the exact day it came on, been dianoised, etc... about 7 months later, I had some severe symptons (not Fm related) and felt flu like, had a big bump.. thought it might be spider bite.. but then found a tick in our bed. We live in the woods and have dog who has Lymes and brings ticks in almost everyday in the summer. I pull them off of him. I got the test, it came back negative.. then he had me take it again 5 weeks later, (Another $250 to IgenX lab) then said.. it's inconclusive but let's check for co infections.. You have so many symptoms.. i really want you to take this test. Took that coinfection panel test ($750 to Igenics) and these are the results of all the tests:
5/20/12 1st western Blot: I only put down what was stared or had a +
**31 kDa IND
**83-93 KDa IND
8/20/12 2nd Western Blot test
IGM RESULT was exact same as above
**23-25 KDa -
**31 KDa IND
**39 KDa IND
**41 KDa +
Co infection Panel was done:
B.henselae IgG 40
B.microti, IgM 20
Can anyone shed any light on these numbers ?
Thank you for your help and time on this ! Hope you are doing well !
