Welcome, Sandcastle. Sure looks like you are positive for Lyme, Bartonella and a couple of other things. Your CD57 looks quite low, too. Others who know more about test results will be along with more definitive responses.
Sorry you are ill but glad you were able to determine what you have. You will find many helpful folks on this site and a wealth of information.
Bartonella POS
Ehrlichia POS
CD57 30, then 12, now 64

You have taken a lot of different tests here. The tests named "elispot" is a special test used in Germany in particular and is supposed to be more sensitive than the normal antibody test which is used other places. Wherever your test states IgG and or IgM, the test method is the conventional antibody testing. You can also see that some tests are positive using the elispot, and negative using the antibody/elisa test.

Your results are "weak positive" for Borrelia and Chlamydia Pneumoniae, "positive" for Bartonella, babesia and Mycoplasma Pneumonia.

Your CD57 count (which is used by some LLMDs to reflect immune suppression) is very low, which can happen when you are infected with borrelia, chlamydia and other infections.

It seems to me that you have Lyme disease with multiple co-infections, and it would be wise to get proper treatment from a LLMD.
Lyme, CPN, Yersinia, Coxsackie, CMV and Bartonella after LLMD visit.
CD57 0, 2, 0, 3

Started treatment in May 2017
Currently on Azithromycin, Doxycycline, Plaquenil, Rifampicin, Delimmun

Hi Sandcastle - welcome to our community.

As RedLabel stated - you are positive for Lyme, Chlamydia Pneumoniae, Bartonella, Babesia and Mycoplasma Pneumonia.

Sorry you have lyme and co's - BUT - you're fortunate that you did get positives for the three B's - as there will be no questioning of what coinfections you have.

If you need help finding a LLMD - please start a new thread: "Looking for LLMD in/near______" and fill in the blank with your location.

We do encourage our new members read through the information contained in the thread: "New to lyme?..Start Here!" It's packed full of useful information: Symptom lists, detoxing suggestions, test interpretations...etc.
