Please Help: Igenex Results need analysis

Still searching for an answer to my chronic ailment. Results back from Igenex only + for 41kda on IgG with an INC on 39. Everything else negative. The doctor was OOO but he thinks I'm crazy so it's doubtful he will interpret anything but the negative from these results upon his return next week. Nevermind my constant fatigue, calf muscle twitching, vein swelling in legs (manly calves), excessive reflux, alcohol intolerance, occasional left arm numbness, insomnia, and occasional flushing....all of which has been going on for months now. Started shortly after I pulled a tick off me from golfing but no rash and not sure I was bitten. Are these results benign?

No, it doesn't sound like it. Very few people with lyme get the rash. Please read the sticky post "Lyme Newbies" at the top of this board for information about testing, diagnosis and proper lyme specialists to see. You need to see one of these specialists ASAP.

All the best with this,

Jen

I agree, you need to see a specialist asap.

Testing isn't always a 100% reliable, however my LLMD feels that even one band showing is indicative of Lyme Disease.

I had only band 41 on my own test and was diagnosed on a clinical basis. I also tested positive for many of the Co-Infections associated with Lyme. I am now doing much better on treatment.

Please don't delay in being evaluated for Lyme, as the longer you leave it the harder it is to treat!

Best of luck
