Welcome to the club. Its a little slow here on weekends.
As far as mold and lyme, c4a and c3a would be better to know than cd57.
That said, I've had used all of those. CD57 is said to be unreliable in some people, but thats possibly from a genetic T-cell gene defect, as that test also measures those. What turns certain genes on and off is still in research discovery mode. We know infections can express them for a long time.
I'm surprised a GP will work with you on this stuff, usually they refuse, and are clueless. Thats why most of us go to a LLMD.
Thanks for the quick and informative response. Did not know about
c4a and c3a test. Was looking at Real Times Lab urine test for mycotoxin. Insurance doesn't cover Real Times Lab test, but does cover C4a and c3a. Apparently more reliable testing for mold as well. Thanks a bunch.
Hi, Welcome Xabian
Astro has given you some info on the mold testing, and the cd57 test.
You asked about it taking some time for lyme to cause nerve problems.
My very first symptom was radiculitis. Excruciating pain shooting up my neck from the left shoulder blade area...and no feeling in my left arm and hand.
No symptoms prior.
There are a lot of members here who are taking Buhner's herbs...so if you have questions...don't hesitate to ask in a post.
Thank you Girlie. Good to know. Luckily she tested negative for Lyme through Igenex. I'm suspecting Bart.
Knee pain and muscle twitches screams bartonella to me. I believe a hallmark of bartonella knee pain is only unilateral pain, it's typically not both joints at once
I appreciate your input. It is what I was suspecting as well.
