    IgM western blot test - I need some advice

    I just got my test resuts back:
    IGM
    18 +
    22 -
    **23-25 IND
    28 -
    30 -
    **31 +++
    **34 IND
    **39 IND
    **41 IND
    45 -
    58 -
    66 -
    73 -
    **83-93 IND
    my IgG was all negative except **41 +
    45 +
    does it seem possible that I would have lymes? my doc gave me 500mg amoxicillin take 2 capsules 3 times a day for 3 weeks then test again. that seems like a giagantic dose of antibiotics, has anyone else done that method of testing?
    the test says that a positive result for 31 and or 34 may be present after vaccination in unifected persons. and that infection with HSV, EBV, HCV and/or syphillis may give false + .... I have hashimoto's, maybe that gave a false positive lol ... maybe not? I'm hoping I dont have lymes, any comments on my results would be hugely appreciated!

    Re: IgM western blot test - I need some advice

    Thank-you both very much for the replies! I truly appreciated it I am hoping so much that I don't have lymes, I'm still trying to fix my thyroid problems, and I just recently found out I have very high levels of arsenic in my body that need to be taken care of as well. I just started taking the antibiotics today, so its a bit early to report on any reactions. Does anyone in the Toronto area know of a LLMD?
    once again, thanks for the replies!!
