Re: MS vs Lyme Disease

The VEP is a non invasive test. They will "glue" electrodes to your scalp and when the test begins you will stare at a screen with one eye covered at a time. You stare at a dot on the screen while a pattern moves in the background.

Re: MS vs Lyme Disease

Hope you are getting Western Blot tests done through iGeneX labs for Lyme. Elisa tests are very unreliable - lots of false negatives.

Re: MS vs Lyme Disease

Ok I will ask my Doc about that. I am in the military and I know they have certain companies they use.

Re: MS vs Lyme Disease

FYI, If you were ever stationed in Europe, you need to advise the testing facility so that they can look for the correct antibodies because Lyme disease in Europe and the US are different.
