Test results in!
Apr 18, 2007
My doctor called with a message about my Igenex Lyme tests and the results are in. She said that my IGM was negative, but my IGG was positive and that this was consistent with lyme. I was neative for all the coinfections. Her nurse will be calling me to discuss the treatment they will prescribe. If this is really it - it's really lyme - I'm thrilled to finally have a diagnosis. I don't know how many bands were positive - just that it was positive. Has anyone else had positive igg and neg igm? Has anyone heard about false positive igg when you have pos epstein barr. I read that on the igenex site and I am positive for EBV. I was bitten by the tick two and a half years ago.

Hey girl, was wondering about you, when are you seeing Dr. I am going to see her this Friday, my appt. is at 11:15. I'm glad that you finally got your results back, are you still herxing? The doc will have to go over all of that with you when you see her. I do know that in the beginning of the infection the IGM antibodies are the initial anti. that the body produces to try to fight off the lyme, after time goes on the Igm anti. slow down the the body starts producing IGG anti. so in a late stage it is common to only find the IGG anti. This is the rule for all infectious diseases. You can have other things going on even when you have LD, unfortunately Lyme affects so many different areas of the body. I have secondary adrenal insufficiency caused by the Lyme, it possibly will eventually turn into full blown addison's because I can't take the seriods that you normally take for adrenal problems. How are you feeling emotionally? I know it's a relief to finally know what you have, don't get discouraged it is going to take some time to get you well, but at least you know now what is wrong. We are here for you and will help you through this. Sarah
