Hi,

I've posted messages before about my 3 year old that had lyme and a month later was diagnosed as autistic. It's been almost 5 months since the initial infection and treatment (21 days of Amoxy). I convinced her pediatrician to do a second blood test. The Elisa and Western Blot came back positive. The doc said even thought it shows positive she does not have active lyme. Based on what I've read there is no way to tell by the bloodwork whether it is active or not. In light of the fact the my daughter was diagnosed autistic soon after getting lyme disease, I think she still has active lyme and I think it's neurological. We are going to a lyme specialist next week but the wait is driving me crazy. I would like to know what others think. Is it possible she stil has an active infection? Maybe the doctor based her diagnosis on the fact that she has no physical symptoms. Thanks for any advice you can give.

Nancy
