Igenex - is the same - if you test negative on the WB - doesn’t mean you are in remission.
Maybe the newer tests with Igenex may be more helpful - the Ispot and Elispot ?
I think they may be more helpful in gauging progress.
But - what’s important is you don’t feel better (symptoms) than how you felt prior to treatment.
It's a sliding scale right now. I DO feel better, but all the same symptoms are still present. A year ago I couldn't get off the couch or bed and now *I am* doing things. I couldn't wash dishes and now I can wash some. It's progress, but not enough. I still have trouble getting up and down the stairs some days.
So what is the most reliable test these days?
SandyFeet, thank you <3
Many (most?) LLMD's don't use testing to gauge when we're in remission...because it's not reliable...
Gotta go by symptom resolution.
