Is anyone familiar with this test.  I had it done during the lyme process mine was positive and it mentioned lyme but also was a marker for HIV (don't have that thank goodness) and also auto-immune disorders? sorry for all the questions....

Hey Carolyn

I've done some research on this test, but all i've found is reference to Lyme testing. The few links that mention ms are so remotely mentioning it so as not to be a good link. Maybe someone else will know more or find more than me.

Don't worry about asking questions friend...that's how u get answers...we will do our best to help u find them!

I did a bit of research and couldn't find any reference to MS or other autoimmune disorders, but did find references to Lyme disease and other similar diseases caused by ticks and other insects. And the HIV related infection as well.

Thank you guys,

I guess the test is usually performed as a test for lyme but cross reacts with auto immune disorders. I did not know if it was one you guys were familiar with :) Thank you so much again for your kindness.
