I took igenex and it came back uncertain. Igm barely came back positive and igg came back negative. So I started Doxycycline. My systoms are mainly neurological such as tingling in arms, balance, memory, chemical sensitivities. I wondering if you think I have a co infection and if so which one and which medications should I be on.
Hi Cezanne - welcome.
If the IgM is positive - then it's not 'uncertain'.
You don't need both Igm and IgG to be positive...
So, if you're IGM positive to back up your symptoms - you need to treat.
You will need a second antibiotic to go with the doxycycline...and something for biofilms and cysts.
I don't know which coinfections you have.
Some LLMD"s treat all three B's - Borrelia, Bartonella, Babesia.
You should see a LLMD for treatment... we can help you find one...
