As I have explained, I am currently a college kid who is rather tight on money. Just two months ago I was diagnosed with Lyme by my LLMD. She ran some Lyme tests that came back negative, but was able to diagnose me based on several other indicators. I trust her, but I also want to know for sure what I have.
I have also noticed several, what I believe to be Bartonella rashes on my upper thighs and near my armpits. I plan on showing these to my LLMD at my next appointment on April 23. I am not currently being treated for any co-infections.
I have been on abx for two months, along with Serrapeptase for the last month. I have yet to see any improvements.
Thus, in the mean time leading up to my appointment, I was wondering if there were any labs that anyone suggest I do to test for Lyme and Bartonella? I read through the list of tests on the "New to Lyme" page, but that was rather confusing. I am rather tight on money, but I also don't want to continue running around on a wild goose chase as to what exactly is wrong with me. I know the tests aren't always 100%, but again, I don't want to continue running in circles. Are there a couple tests which any of you would suggest? Would it even be worth it? I would greatly appreciate any insight.
