Re: Help with blood test
Your numbers look very similar to mine. I had a few more positive bands. I read through the CDC specs. Seems people need to have 5 bands in the IGG and or 2 bands in the IGM. I am no expert as I was just diagnosed. The IGM is stage 1 an the acute stage which is shortly after an infection and out to a few months. IGG is stage 2 and stage 3 which may develop after the infection and can persist indefinitely. I also read somewhere that IGM is a current infection and IGG is an infection that has been in your system for years. Once you test positive for Lyme you will always test positive. Supposedly different lab are more sensitive than others.
Good Luck. Hopefully you can convince your doctor to give you the medication for Lyme anyway.
