Hi AlbertBean, welcome to the board!

Lyme symptoms can migrate like you describe. No Lyme test is completely reliable and many people who have Lyme test negative. Regarding the Western Blot, although the CDC requires several bands to show for it to be positive, many people who have Lyme do not get this many bands. Lyme doctors often focus on which bands show, some are specific for Lyme. Also, results can vary by lab. It is important to have testing done at a Lyme reputable lab such as IgeneX in Palo Alto, CA.

It looks like your titer test is positive. Some people who have Lyme also have a positive ANA. You have a positive test and symptoms, you need to be treated.

It is very important for you to be evaluated by a Lyme knowledgeable doctor. Besides Lyme, ticks can transmit several coincluding Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. Many people who have Lyme are co-infected, and it may affect treatment choice and progress. It is improtant to be tested for these. Babesiosis can cause heart symptoms and shortness of breath.

There is an excellent Lyme doctor in Wilton, CT named Dr. Steven Phillips. I hope you can get an appointment with him or another knowledgeable doctor soon. Keep us posted okay?
