    Unhappy BLOOD Work came back today (NEED SOME HELP READING IT? THANKS

    Been sick 3 years...Seen a LLMD...treated but not better.

    Stoped meds 6 months ago, feel the same but not worse. I never tested positive in the past but this time I did at a local lab in Boston.

    He told me this was a recent bite with in 6 weeks...I reminded him I've been sick for 3 years???

    What do you think I should do at this point?

    Lyme AB IGG_WB NEG
    41 KD Abnormal

    Lymeigm WB INTP - POS - Abnormal
    39 KD Abnormal

    23 KD Abnormal


    Thanks,
    Roy

    Hello! Did you take the IgenX test? Have you tried a different doctor? I wish you well, hang in there and keep trying whatever you can until you find what works and with whichever LLMD that can get results for you. Take care.

    Steve,
    I tested with IgeneX last year and they found low levels of Lyme and high levels of Erlichiosis. I did a lot of treatments and vitamins and nothing made a big difference. My main symptom is FATIGUE. Unrelenting fatigue. Anyway, I started using Mesosilver and it made a huge difference. I don't take much - only 1 tsp with my 3 meals during the day. I did it for 5 months while taking these "smell kit" vitamins that I found on a Lyme site, and getting weekly energy healing massages. Now I am testing negative and it feels like I am better. Cool. Good luck.

    I had the same questions a while back and someone gave me this information..So I guess I will pass it on. Hope this helps.

    Western Blot Bands description:

    9 cross-reactive for Borrellia
    12 specific for Bb
    18 unknown
    20 cross-reactive for Borrellia
    21 unknown
    22 specific for Bb, probably really the 23/25 band
    23-25 outer surface protein C (OspC), specific for Bb
    28 unknown
    30 unknown; probably an outer surface protein; common in European and
    one California strain
    31 outer surface protein A (OspA), specific for Bb
    34 outer surface protein B (OspB); specific for Bb
    35 specific for Bb
    37 specific for Bb
    38 cross-reactive for Bb
    39 is a major protein of Bb flagellin; specific for Bb
    41 flagellin protein of all spirochetes; this is usually the first to appear after a Bb infection and is specific for all Borrellia
    45 cross-reactive for all Borellia (sometimes people with Lyme who have
    this band positive also have the co-infection Ehrlichiosis)
    50 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
    55 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
    57 cross-reactive for all Borrellia
    58 unknown but may be a heat-shock Bb protein
    60 cross reactive for all Borrellia
    66 cross-reactive for all Borrelia, common in all bacteria
    83 specific antigen for the Lyme bacterium, probably a cytoplasmic membrane
    93 unknown, probably the same protein in band 83, just migrates differently in some patients

    The experts say to keep doing treatment until all symptoms are gone. Doing a short course of antibiotics is not going to do it.

    I have been on antibiotics different types for 10 years. A break here and there. But pretty constant. Stopped them again a month ago.

    I also do "tons" of different supplements.

    If I were you, I would seek out a Lyme knowledgable doctor. And get back on a treatment plan.

    Test are not accurate for lyme. There are 300-400 different strains. The test does not cover all the strains. And the bacteria does not like oxygen so it does imbeded in bone, musle, brain on and on. So to get a positive is pretty tricky.
    If you see a lyme literate doctor they go on symptoms and not soley on a test.

    I was tested through Igenex about 3 times. Never showed a positive. But I had it.
