So I have been sick for about a month and I have seen so manyy doctors. Including how many times I went to the ER(my coworker took me twice). The ER doctor told me and I quote “I have no idea what’s wrong with you. It’s beyond me. Maybe multiple scolersis.” I was I was researching my symptoms and found that Lyme matches %100 up with what has been going on. I told my urgent care doctor this and she gave me a test for Lyme. These are the results.( i am waiting for the lab to post the full results so I can see the bands I tested postivr for).

Lyme AB/Western Blot
Lyme AB IGM/IGG: <91
Ref <91= neg
=91-1.01 equivocal
= or <1.01 positive
Lyme AB IGM <80

So I am confused.. when I read igenex results for these tests it says I was equivocal on the ELISA c6 and positive with IGM.
Any help will be appreciated.

Hi and welcome to our forum.

Sorry you are going through this, but glad you have found us. Many here have a similar story about the ER. It just doesn't make sense to me anymore what people have to go through.

It will be helpful to see the bands results when you receive them.

Others will be along that have more experience interpreting results.

We also encourage you to read our "New to Lyme" start here thread at the top of the page. It had good and helpful information on Lyme, testing, detoxing and more.

If you want to find an Lyme Literate MD(llmd) we can help you do that here.

You would need to enable your email in your profile so members can respond with recommendations.

You may also search for an llmd at :


Take care and I wish you the best of healing.
