My wife and i have most of the lyme symptoms for a minimum of 6 months.. We are hight risk for it.
1 hunting dogs
2 live in woods
3 avid big game hunter
4 deer run on our property

Doctor is giving me the run around big time. sending me to a specialist. she has no idea about lyme disease.
test results from the lab all show up negative.
She told me that i needed to be .91 and im .45 whatever that means, she cant tell me.

It has taken me two days to verify this, didnt sleep last night

They told me this morning that even if i go get my lab test results that is all they will say

They say those are the results they get

I am furious

does insurance cover the igenex test and if not how much is it?

I say 6 months but that is when it has disabilitated us

I was on pain killers for several years due to back injury, so im thinking they masked the problem.

I am so frustrated where do go from here.

One of my dogs is anorexic and we cant keep weight on her, wondering if she has it.

I hope this makes sense. I am furious and i have brain fog.

sorry for the long post rob

Re: Aggravated

Rob, if you haven't already read the thread above by Jen called "Lyme Newbies" It will help guide you on some things.

Antibody testing is definatley not accurate.

From where you are sitting you can find Igenex lab. Call them and request a test and you can ask any questions you may have about insurance and prices.

You definatley need to see a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor. (LLMD), Lyme specialist. Since testing is not full proof they go on symtpoms mainly.

Your dog should be taken to the vet. I know years before I had any human medical doctor to tell me they suspected lyme in me. My vet I was taking my dog said, sounds like Lyme and Babesia...Gee never could get a run of the mill g.p. even think it was a possibilty.

I wish you luck in finding your answers.
