Unhappy BLOOD Work came back today (NEED SOME HELP READING IT? THANKS

Hello! Did you take the IgenX test? Have you tried a different doctor? I wish you well, hang in there and keep trying whatever you can until you find what works and with whichever LLMD that can get results for you. Take care.

Re: BLOOD Work came back today (NEED SOME HELP READING IT? THANKS

Steve,
I tested with IgeneX last year and they found low levels of Lyme and high levels of Erlichiosis. I did a lot of treatments and vitamins and nothing made a big difference. My main symptom is FATIGUE. Unrelenting fatigue. Anyway, I started using Mesosilver and it made a huge difference. I don't take much - only 1 tsp with my 3 meals during the day. I did it for 5 months while taking these "smell kit" vitamins that I found on a Lyme site, and getting weekly energy healing massages. Now I am testing negative and it feels like I am better. Cool. Good luck.

Re: BLOOD Work came back today (NEED SOME HELP READING IT? THANKS

I had the same questions a while back and someone gave me this information..So I guess I will pass it on. Hope this helps.

Western Blot Bands description:

9 cross-reactive for Borrellia
12 specific for Bb
18 unknown
20 cross-reactive for Borrellia
21 unknown
22 specific for Bb, probably really the 23/25 band
23-25 outer surface protein C (OspC), specific for Bb
28 unknown
30 unknown; probably an outer surface protein; common in European and
one California strain
31 outer surface protein A (OspA), specific for Bb
34 outer surface protein B (OspB); specific for Bb
35 specific for Bb
37 specific for Bb
38 cross-reactive for Bb
39 is a major protein of Bb flagellin; specific for Bb
41 flagellin protein of all spirochetes; this is usually the first to appear after a Bb infection and is specific for all Borrellia
45 cross-reactive for all Borellia (sometimes people with Lyme who have
this band positive also have the co-infection Ehrlichiosis)
50 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
55 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
57 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
58 unknown but may be a heat-shock Bb protein
60 cross reactive for all Borrellia
66 cross-reactive for all Borrelia, common in all bacteria
83 specific antigen for the Lyme bacterium, probably a cytoplasmic membrane
93 unknown, probably the same protein in band 83, just migrates differently in some patients

The experts say to keep doing treatment until all symptoms are gone. Doing a short course of antibiotics is not going to do it.

I have been on antibiotics different types for 10 years. A break here and there. But pretty constant. Stopped them again a month ago.

I also do "tons" of different supplements.

If I were you, I would seek out a Lyme knowledgable doctor. And get back on a treatment plan.

Test are not accurate for lyme. There are 300-400 different strains. The test does not cover all the strains. And the bacteria does not like oxygen so it does imbeded in bone, musle, brain on and on. So to get a positive is pretty tricky.
If you see a lyme literate doctor they go on symptoms and not soley on a test.

I was tested through Igenex about 3 times. Never showed a positive. But I had it.

Jodie
