Yep, depending on who you talk to, band 18 is specific to Lyme. You may also have a moderate Mycoplasma coinfection as well. I can now officially welcome to the forum! =-)
Anyway, my strep flairs with every relapse, especially when my immune system is weak, but I do test positive for strep when this happens. My LLMD just about
took out my tonsils too, but they finally reduced in size and I still have them. I'd recommend you start rebuilding your immune system, especially after all those antibiotics (ABXs) you were on and target the mycoplasma which is one tough nut to crack. Are you taking any probiotics and have you been tested for any other coinfections yet?
