I saw my results at hospital lab IgG & IgM - neg less than.90. No levels or bands. Doc ordered western Blot and eliza. I am not sure if they did wb. There was another neg result too so I guess that was eliza. I went to labcorp this time because my ins won't fully cover the hospital lab, but my tests still show up there if the doc is there. I should have gone to Quest. I think they will post a more detailed result Tuesday hopefully with bands or at least levels. My test years ago had bands. The cuti md tick panel was done at Imugen.
So I have escaped Lyme again, prolly thanks to prophylaxis. It has been a terrible summer with all of these bites. I feel ill and traumatized. Mostly from the antibiotics, diflucan, stress and my other illnesses. I just wonder if I should request the full blood tick panel I had done at citi md last Nov after the last tic bite, to make sure nothing else was transmitted. After I became ill with type 1 D, a study I was in asked me to test for epstein barr due to fatigue, it turned out I had a reactivation then. I know now that played a role in my type one.
You can’t rely on negative tests to rule out lyme unfortunately.
You should get tested with a lab that specializes in tickborne illness testing - Igenex for example
