Hi everyone- I know that I keep hearing you can have Lyme with a negative WB but I was really hoping. I only had 1 band show up- can't remember which, in the 40's and LLMD said not Lyme specific.
I have heard that if you were previously treated with abx, it is even more likely to have false negative. I was on abx or acne for 9 years. sx started right after I stopped.
So, here is what I think I should do- please let me know if you agree or have any other ideas.
- Calling Steven Phillips for 2nd opinion on Lyme dx
- Asking LLMD or Steven Phillips if it makes sense to ask for a PCR. My current LLMD does not seem to bother with any testing once he decides you have Lyme.
does anyone know anything about PCRs or any other test? Should I be ok with a negative wb?
