Igenix Results- Need Band 31 Confirm?

Hi all,
I just got results from Igenix WB and I'm a little confused. Unfortunately, the more a research I do the less sure I am! The IgG was all negative and the IgM was as follows: CDC Neg, Igenix Pos. Bands: 31 +, 41 +, 34 IND, 39 IND, all others -. As far as I can see the 41 is not specific for lyme and the 31 can cross react with viruses. So my question is should I pursue the Band 30/31 confirmation test from Igenix for an extra $100, or should I be satisfied that I have an active lyme infection? What would you do?
Thanks for the feedback.

Re: Igenix Results- Need Band 31 Confirm?

Hi xenophile, from everything that I have been through, and have learned along the way...

You can not solely go on a test. A person truly needs to go to a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor, (Lyme specialist).
They go on your symptoms. A clinical evaluation.

Not many go on what the CDC says, from what I understand they use these bands as tracking. crazy eh? NOT many have all of the bands they are looking for.
Since you have a positive from the lab...I would go with that.

What symptoms do you have that made you look into lyme?

At the top of this board, there are 2 threads, How to Share Doctors names, and Lyme Newbies...They should help guide you.

Read old post of yours, being bit by 100's of ticks. I would go on your test results!!

Hope you find the right treatment and get better soon!

Jodie
