I've tested positive several times on a babesia titer (1:256 I believe) several years ago.

Is babesia similar to lyme in the sense that it can remain positive in your blood forever but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have an active infection? OR does a positive titer mean you MUST get rid of this infection to bring the results down to 0?

I gave up on positive lyme and babesia results several years ago after spending $10,000 on a natural path. I took all supplements, IV, etc. and saw no improvement whatsoever or even a herx. So I just concluded that even though I had positive results in my blood work, it didn’t mean that I had active infections.

I think it will always show up (IGG). Are you also showing an IGM? Are you still sick?

It was a WA1 IgG antibody IFA test 1:256 positive.

My only symptom is chronic sleep disturbances for about 10 years. I've also been diagnosed with sleep apnea so it's very hard to tell what is causing my sleep issues. Current CPAP sleep treatment isn't working so I wanted to revisit lyme and coinfections.

Also have poisitive results epstein-barr Ab IgG 2.86. Chlamydia Pneumoniae IgG 1:64. But I think these are all IgG and not necessarily active infections. But how can I confirm???

There’s a lot of differing opinions on if a high IGG can mean current infection. You could self-treat with herbal (like CSA) to see if you have changes in sleep. There’s a lot of things that can effect sleep. What else have you looked into?

A few things of the top of my head - cortisol issue, blood sugar, neurotransmitter imbalance (gaba/glutamate), food sensitivity/allergy, low msh, hormones, inflammation/infections, parasites.

I've done a lot of herbal remedies under guidance of a natural path. I've also done a lot of supplements through Dr. Jernigan and through recommendations on this forum. And after spending about $10,000, I haven't screen a .01% improvement, so I gave up on lyme and co-infections. But looking back, I don't recall any doctor ever saying definitively I don't have any active infections.

So I wanted to revisit this. It's just so frustrating not to hear a doctor just confirm that the issue is somewhere else and just admit I don't have any active infections, instead of me pouring money into treatment.
