Hi everyone,

Hi sure would appreciate any help you can give to help me better understand my test results. The Western Blot IGG was positive & the IGM was Indeterminate. But, I don't really understand what exactly the individual bands mean.
Do I really have Lyme? Part of the confusion is why my LLMD dr. hasn't treated me yet. These results are from 1.5 years ago and I haven't been treated yet. Is it possible the LLMD doesn't really think I have Lyme? (If he did, wouldn't he treat me--he says my allergies to pain meds make him think I will get an allergy to the antibiotics and then I will have to stop treatment and be worse off than before.) Should I seek out another LLMD????

Below I typed out the test results from my Western Blot (Igenex). Is the IGG a current infection? Is the IGM a past infection? Anything else I should know?

(The test says IND=Indeterminate; 1+ to 4+ is a positive with 4+being the strongest positive. If two or more doube starred bands are positive, the test is positive for Lyme. )

Also, the Epstein Barr Virus IGG was very, very high with 6.28 (positive is 1.10 or greater)

Mycoplasma Pneumoniae Ab IGG was very high with 3.20 (positive is 1.10 or greater)

Cytomegalovirus IGG is high with 1.58 (positive is 1.10 or higher)

Thanks for your help!!!
