IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME UNDERSTAND THE RESULTS OF MY LYME TEST I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. THE DOCTOR JUST SAID IT WAS NEGATIVE
SO I ASK HIM FOR A COPY OF THE RESULTS BUT DON'T NO IF I SHOULD BE CONCERNED AND GET TESTED AGAIN BY A LLMD.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE,
ANTHONY

Greetings Anthony.

One of the top three posts on this site is the one that describes the Western Blot bands. I found it tremendously helpful as my blood test report looked like another language. I am also positive for #41 and #58 and I was wary of how to interpret this result.

You may consider contacting Dr. Emelia Erias. She is a Lyme Literate doctor (LLMD) in Jackson, right off {address removed} I am a patient of hers.

I asked some pretty basic questions when I first joined this board. No one minded answering them. The folks here are patient, understanding and best of all- they listen to my complaints without passing judgement and offer encouragement.

Good luck to you,
Mickie
