Darwayne - you mentioned you were negative on the Igenex WB IgM and IgG. Did you have any positive lyme 'specific' bands on either of those?
Re: Doctors - maybe a good LLND would be helpful...or a lyme literate Functional Med/Integrative Doc. would be helpful?
IgM came back all negative besides 41=indeterminate
IgG came back 39=ind, 41=++, 66=+, rest is negative
I'll look for some nearby and see if any come recommended! I guess the idea is to try and find the right person that really wants to figure it out and I've had a hard time finding that. After my DNAconnex, my LLMD kind of gave up on the Lyme possibility and I did the rest on my own. He's smart and all but I know 1 test can't rule Lyme out and he knows a lot more about
Lyme than me lol. Thanks GBand 39 is lyme specific. And Ind means something showed up, just not strong enough to be a positive.
some say it's a 'weak' positive.
Also 41 means a bacteria with a flagella (tail) - which can be lyme disease as well.
And you're correct - one test can't rule out lyme.
You could find a new LLMD who will evaluate you based on symptoms, history and use testing just as back-up.
...or you could do a retest... I do know of some people who retested a couple months later and did get a + on lyme specific band(s)
