Welcome to our community!
From what I understand about
your test results, you tested positive on the Elispot, so there's little doubt you have Lyme at least.
As for the Band 41 that you tested positive for, it will only happen if you have a spirochetal disease, and that list is fairly short - a couple of Borrelia (Lyme) infections, Yaws, Pintas, Leptospirosis, and Syphilis.
If you haven't yet, it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as it is packed full of important information, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more. And, here's another good place to find helpful detoxing routines: www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
There are only a few LLMD's in Canada that are practicing, but there are some LLND's that you can get in to see.You can send me an email by clicking on my screen name or the small blue envelope under my screen name. I may have contact information for some LLND's in your area. Please include your province and area that you would like to find a LLND in and I will see how close I can get to your
location. If I don't have any listed, then I will encourage you to email Girlie (the moderator that is usually here), as she lives "up there" and has a much better understanding of what's available and the distance. You can also send her an email now, but she won't be able to answer it for another few days, as she's out of town for an appointment.
Here are some other options as well:
You can start a new thread titled something like "Looking for LLMD in the (insert the nearest larger city & state)
area". Members can email you about
the LLMD's that they see in that area if you have your email enabled. We don't allow doctors names to be posted though.
You can go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74
You can email the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance at: email@example.com
ILADS has their own referral system as well:http://ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/
