Hi Julieann31,

I'm not sure what you mean by saying 2 out of the 5 IgG Western Blot. I assume that you are referring to the specific bands. However, on my Western blot IgG from IgeneX there are 14 different individual bands all with different kDa band numbers. I think that you are going by the CDC requirements of having 5 bands to be declared a Lyme victim. Keep in mind that no tests are perfect. The fact that you have two bands showing up is significant. I am curious which bands are showing up. If you post your band numbers, there are people on this board who have a better breakdown of the Western blot kda bands. One thing for sure is that IgG is a long standing infection. IgM is the shorter term infection.

Good Luck Please post your bands.

Bigstan...I was searching older posts and noticed that you had tachycardia on the rocephin. I am going through that as well. Did it go away when you finished the rocephin? this is scary side effect or herx. Thanks
