Hello,
My name is Don been fighting lyme on my own sice 2011, my latest wb is in and the only two bands
Is igg 66 and igg 41 from labcorp. The elisa was 1.35.
This was after hospital and doxy for a month. They tested me once and the blood hemolyzed so a month went by i was on doxy and then i retested and that is the results. I am using garlic and doxy right now but no dr will give me any meds. In Arkansas lyme does not exist. They say. Need an llmd i guess. Had bullseye and dermatologist gave me 30days doxy about 10 days into it i was told by airforce medical that lyme does not exist stop the meds on my yearly physical for navy. Retired in 2013. Been crazy sick every since. Lots of panic and anxiety, hives guy problems, had air hunger for a bit but gone. Bone pain, nueropathy, extreme pill anxiety. Etc on phone so forgive my vision is crazy with lyme right now so sorry of mistakes. Want my life back. I read a biologist the said he cured lyme by only taking one 100mg doxy and garlic every morning for thirty weeks. He said the lyme breeding is 8 days and soon as the serum in blood peaks the lyme goes into cyst and biofilms. So thats why garlic. The doxy a second dose is waisted because it causes the lyme to stay there. By one a day the serum goes down and the lyme some not all come out so you zap them again. Seems legit. Look ath the pulsing theory. And i have noticed that a second pill does nothing and herx is not happening but does at one a day. He showed that only 40mg kills the spirochettes in lab. Garlic bust up the biofulms. I can not find the youtub vid no more. Or i would post it here. I think cdc or someone had it temoved. Anyone know what the bands i am presnt for mean? Ty pove you all Don

Hi Don, welcome~

Did you get tested in 2011? And what were the results then?
Band 41 represents the flagella (tail) of a spirochete...which could be Lyme. Other spirochetes: Relapsing fever, Pinta and yaws to name a few.
So, it's not specific to lyme disease.

(Just curious why you're testing now?)


I've heard there isn't much support in Arkansas unfortunately.

Have you done an Igenex test - Lyme WB? or is this another lab?

But, what's more important is you had a bullseye rash with subsequent symptoms. Then you were under-treated.

I suggest you see a LLMD, even if it means traveling.

Start a new thread: "Looking for LLMD in/near_____" and fill in the blank with the location you're willing to travel to.

Band 66 is not Lyme specific - not sure why it’s on the WB.

Can you get the paperwork you lost from the lab?

The current negative test doesn’t mean much - your immune system may not be functioning enough to mount a response.

I’m so sorry you’re suffering - no need to apologize - we understand.

While I didn’t have the bad pain in my head - I did have pressure behind my eyes that did seem to affect my vision - sometimes it was like a haze.

I am also a fellow Band 66'er here. I have read many sources say it is specific to Borrelia. I have also read other sources that say its not. Search Oms66 or Hsp or band 66 or 66 kda in google. You will get lots of scientific article hits. It is one band that has been studied a lot.
