I’ve been reading the forum for a while now and it has been a great source of knowledge and support for me. Now I am at the stage where my doctor has no answers to my questions and I am looking for a more experienced LLMD. I am looking for recommendations for doctors who do online consultations. I live in Indianapolis and don’t have many options here.
Below is my Western Blot result from October 2016
F IgG P93 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P66 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P58 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P45 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P41 Ab. Present A BN
F IgG P39 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P30 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P28 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P23 Ab. Absent BN
F IgG P18 Ab. Absent BN
F Lyme IgG WB Interp. Negative BN
- Positive: 5 of the following
- Borrelia-specific bands:
- 18,23,28,30,39,41,45,58,
- 66, and 93.
- Negative: No bands or banding patterns which do not meet positive criteria.
F IgM P41 Ab. Absent BN
F IgM P39 Ab. Absent BN
F IgM P23 Ab. Present A BN
F Lyme IgM WB Interp. Negative
I’ve successfully used two herbal protocols: Researched Nutritionals for 6 months which significantly improved my sleep issues and helped with my headaches and back pain. It however caused occasional night jerking keeping me awake all night. It happens only when something out of the ordinary happens in the evening (meeting, phone call, etc). I tried Byron white drops for 2 months, I almost didn’t herx, but when I stopped it my occasional sleep issues were back.
I am very confused as it doesn’t look like an active Lyme and my doctor gave me green light for getting pregnant. However, I want to understand if it’s a sign of neurological damage or active desease. If you know a good doctor, who can advise on Lyme and pregnancy this would be wonderful.

Hi Sandalka - welcome.

I have to be brief - away from home right now.

You have band 23 positive - it’s Lyme specific

I would treat longer - sounds like active Lyme to me and I think you should consult with a LLMD.

I urge you to hold off on pregnancy until you have been effectively treated as you really don’t want to pass LD to your babe in the womb.

There is a LLMD that will do a Skype appt and gives you a written report to share with your Dr. I think he also suggests a treatment plan
Send me an email for the information if you’re interested .
