I am a 24 year old female who has been very sick for around four years with terrible gastric symptoms, weight loss (as a result), bizarre neurological experiences, a major uptick in anxiety and panic, and joint pain. It has uprooted my life tremendously and stripped me of the person I once was. After seeing tens of specialists throughout the years (as many of us did before getting our diagnosis), I was told it was all in my head and that nothing was wrong with me – that is, until I found an LLMD about
two weeks ago who diagnosed me with Lyme.
I just got back my report (from the Stony Brook Lyme Lab) and was hoping someone could help me decipher the results. I have looked at many sites online (as well as these forums), but cannot find the meaning of band 64.
My Lyme serology was Reactive at 0.168 with the borderline cutoff of 0.106 and the reactive cutoff at 0.133.
IgM: Indeterminate for 41, IgM nonspecific bands were also detected in 64 and 93
IgG: indeterminate for 41
Next, given these results, are false positives for Lyme common? I have been reading that sometimes you can test positively for Lyme but have something else, such as Hepatitis C or EBV. But I know I tested for 93, which is Lyme specific, so is that possible in this case?
I am currently pursuing a three month herbal treatment with monthly IV's of Colloidal Silver, which will hopefully bring me to testing nonreactive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
