Re: low absolute lymphocytes related to Lymes?
Hi gemofnj, welcome to the board!
Were you tested for all the co-infections ticks can transmit--Babesiosis, both types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma? This is very important. Many people who have Lyme are co-infected, and it may affect treatment choice and progress. The Ehrlichiosis co-infections infect the white blood cells. Some people who have Ehrlichiosis have low white counts.
From what I understand, Quest is not a good lab for this testing. I recommend that you have it done at IgeneX Lab in Palo Alto, CA.
Are you currently being treated? What dose of Doxy did you take?
