I need some outside perspective because I'm really making myself bananas trying to figure things out for myself.
In November of last year I found an LLMD and tested through Igenex. My results were as follows:
Band 83-93 IND
Band 41 +
The doctor ended up diagnosing me with Bartonella and told me he would also treat me for LD. I've been treating with antibiotics and supplements since November and haven't made much progress.
I ended up seeking a 2nd opinion from another LLMD. He, too, diagnosed me with suspected tickborne infection(s) and prescribed me one antibiotic to start with. So at this time I'm sortof working with two LLMD's, however I don't really feel confident with either of them so I've made an appointment with yet another doctor, however, I can't get in to see her until September.
I decided I wanted to be tested again through Igenex. This time around my results were as follows:
Band 31 IND
Band 39 IND
Band 41 IND
So, it seems as though some new bands popped up as IND but where the heck did band 83-93 IND go? Why did the 41 band on IGG go from + to IND?
I realize I am probably putting way too much importance on the testing than I should, but I think I would feel better seeing an actual positive test. I am desperate to feel better and after 7 months of treatment I'm so incredibly frustrated that I'm not better. I'm frustrated with doctors who I feel don't know what the hell they're doing, I'm frustrated with tests that are so ambiguous, I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I'm scared that these doctors are missing an important part of the puzzle for me and that is why my health is not really improving. I suppose if I'm honest, some things have actually improved (some of my neurological issues are somewhat better, the awful shooting pains I used to have are gone) but overall, I still feel like absolute crap.
Anyway, I guess my question has to do with my testing. Can anyone shed some light on my latest results and help me understand why bands appear IND and some disappear? Do I have Lyme disease or what?
I feel like throwing in the towel and just giving up completely at this point.
