Hi and welcome to our forum,
Sorry you have been going through all of this, you will find many members here that have had a similar experience.
Many people test negative for Lyme but have been clinically diagnosed by a Lyme Literate MD or NP.
Testing can be unreliable, however there are some labs that are much better at testing for Lyme and co infections than others.
Igenix and DNA connections are the better ones for testing.
This is the info I have on Band 45:
45 cross-reactive for all Borellia (sometimes people with Lyme who have
this band positive also have the co-infection Ehrlichiosis)
You should seek out an llmd as I am not a medical expert.
If you arnt seeing a Lyme Literate MD or Lyme Literate Neurologist already we can help you find one here.
You would have to enable your email in your profile and the start a new post"Seeking an LLMD in such in such area" then members can respond withrecomendations.
You can also email Girlie or me and we can check our list for your area.
you can do a llmd search at ilads.org/ilads_media/physician-referral/Lymedisease.org
also has a physician search.
We do encourage all new members to read our "New to Lyme" start here thread at the top of the subject page.
It has great info on Lyme, detoxing, testing and more.
Take care and I wish you the best of healing.
