Wifey's test results back from pcp today. CDC positive with igM bands 39 and 41 reactive. Igg bands 23 and 66 reactive.
Again, her only symptoms seem to be dementia related, memory, personality change, socially inappropriate behaviors.
Thinking igenex for coinfections next. Any point in bothering to test for Bb thru igenex?
No point in retesting Lyme with Igenex. CDC positive from Quest is more than enough.
Next step? LLMD....or are you leaning toward herbals?Next step? Gosh, I don't know. Probably igenex for coinfections. Neuro appt on 3/7, I think I want to see mri results before considering abx. We're still waiting for some other test results; genetic apoe type, heavy metals, and a b vitamins. I'm still skeptical about
a Lyme dx without any other sx besides the dementia. Otoh, that seems like the most plausible cause if it's a reversible dementia.
While she gets confused, is socially inappropriate, obsessive, and lacking empathy, she still reads 5 novels a week with Good comprehension, easily solves soduku puzzles, and she can still destroy me at scrabble and boggle games. But she can't deal with her iPhone and doesn't learn when I teach her. Weird huh? She was never socially inappropriate before, but this has gradually developed over the past 6 years with more rapid and disturbing decline over the past year. she's a retired social worker who was very empathetic and successful in her work. She was mensa, always the smartest kid in the room.
If she's asymptomatic seropositive with non-lyme dementia, treatment could stir a hornets nest and just make her miserable AND demented. That would be cruel. Results came in late last nite and I still haven't told her. She insists there's nothing wrong with her. Timing will be important as will careful delivery. Yikes, I dunno what to do but leaning toward herbs for starters.
Question, should we get the igenex blood drawn before starting herbal therapy?
Thanks. Best Regards,
