Newly diagnosed
Oct 30, 2007
Hi all,

I just found out last week that I tested positive for Lyme. I live in Northwestern New Jersey...tons of deer and lots of ticks!

Looking back, I now know the day I was bit and what the red mark on the back of my arm was. I was in bad shape in the summer and stupidly lived with it...thinking I had developed arthritis


I am on 4 weeks of Doxyclycline 100mg 2xday. I assume I will be re-tested . then.

One of my questions is....what it the significance..if any..to the number of bands which test positive? On the IGG WB, I test positive for 10 bands . ( 93, 66, 58, 45, 41, 39, 30, 28, 23, 18) On the IgG/IgM..my result is: 4.31H
Do results indicate level of severity? Or..is it just positive or negative?

Appreciate any info. Thanks!
Bonnie
