While your blood test was negative, let's take a look at was positive & Lyme specific on them. Then you can see the truth.
Please note: IND means indeterminate. There was a reaction, just not strong enough to consider a positive. This is literally the difference in the color of the results - from gray to black. There was a reaction.
The more + signs you have, the stronger the reaction, with +++ being the strongest (I believe).
(+) IgG Band 30- Osp A - although positive, can cross react with other things.
(IND) IgM & IgG Band 31 - another Osp A-this one being slightly heavier than 30 is specific to Lyme disease, and it is believed to take a year or more to develop.
(++) IgG Band 34 - A 'double positive' is significant. This means that it was darker than just a (+). This band is Osp B and is specific to Lyme Disease.
(IND) IgG Band 39 - Bmp A (Bacterial membrane protein 'A') Specific to Lyme disease.
(IND & ++) IgM & IgG respectively Band 41 - This indicates the tail of the spirochete (the Lyme bacteria) and can cross react with other spirochete bacteria.
(+) IgM Band 45 - This often is positive when there is an Ehrlichia infection - a common co-infection of Lyme disease.
So as you can see, there are three bands that are positive or IND that are specific to Lyme disease. These will only react when the Lyme bacteria are in your blood - and the only way that can happen is if you have the infection. So the tests is not quite so negative now, right? You will need to find a doctor that will treat based on these results and your symptoms. ILADS trained doctors are supposed to.
