Been off DSF for two weeks now. At my last LLMD conference call when I decided to stop DSF, my LLMD suggested that since I was now on Medicare maybe we should get a full Lyme/Co-infection lab set from IGneX since Medicare covers the cost without a co-pay or deductable.
I hadn't had any positive Lyme or Bart tests ever since my tick bite in June 2005 and starting treatment in March 2010. All Western Blot labs always showed only IgM 23 positive, so we treated based on symptoms.
Anyway here's my IGeneX results after over ten years on abx and 9 months on DSF:
IgM 23 +, 41+
IgG 41 IND and 93 IND
IgM B Burg US (genus) Positive
B Burg European (genus) Positive
B Burg Species Positive
All Co's were negative.
I had heard that most patients sending blood to IGeneX would stop taking abx for a month to get a better chance of getting a Positive result.
I had added Ceftin to DSF in July and still got solid IgM positive results.
CDC Positive Lyme Western Blot was the last thing I expected to see when I
opened the lab report today.
Now I don't know what to try next, since DSF was going to be my last hope.
