Hi JeanBean55 - welcome to our community!
Band 23 is specific to lyme...
An Infectious disease specialist won't be much help unless he's lyme literate. (most likely not)
I suggest you seek out a LLMD - we can help. Start a new thread titled: "Looking for LLMD in/near_____" and fill in the blank.
Then enable your email option - so members can send you names privately. We don't post the names of LLMD's for privacy reasons. We need to protect our dr.'s.
In addition you can contact ILADS for some names:ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/
...you can also contact me via email (click on the envelope below my screen name) and I will check my list for LLMD's in your area.
We encourage all new members to read through the "New to Lyme?..Start Here!" thread . It's packed full of useful information.
So - what's important is you have symptoms consistent with lyme disease...and you have a positive lyme specific band on the WB test (23).
