I finally got my Igenex report back and according to their lab I was positive for all tests, but according to CDC standards I am only positive for the titer (1:80) but not the antibodies.

Has anyone had similar results and been treated for Lyme and subsequently regained health? Should I follow up on this?

My results are listed below:

IFA, B Burgdorferi - 1:80 (Positive)

Lyme IgM Western Blot -
Bands 23-25,39: Negative
Bands 41, 83-93: Indeterminate
Bands 31, 34: Positive

Lyme IgG Western Blot -
Bands 18, 28, 30, 39, 45, 58, 66, 83-93: Negative
Bands 23 - 25: Indeterminate
Bands 31, 41 Positive

I don't know what bands of mine were positive and which weren't but only that I was IgM positive. It was such a relief to find that I had Lyme b/c I went through 4 months of Hell trying to find out what was going on with me. If you have gone to a bunch of Docs and they all shrug their shoulders or tell you you're anxious you probably have Lyme. Of course that is a bit tongue in cheek but it seems to be ever more true.
