Hi NSGFX - welcome!
The IFA and Elisa tests are generally used as a screening tool.
If they're positive, then they do the WB.
The IFA/Elisa are even more unreliable/inaccurate than the WB tests.
Yes, it is a good 'sign' that you do have lyme disease.
Thanks for the quick reply! I appreciate it. I will be starting a combination antibiotic/herbal treatment from my LLMD this week.
That's great that you're starting treatment this week. Good luck!
