Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

I had to have brain MRIs, and also a spinal tap, and I was not found to have any MS lesions or onglical bands (however you spell it) in my CSF, but they DID find a full positive lyme test in my CSF, with a 1 IGM and 7 IGG blood lyme western blot still. If you had onglical bands, then you would have a positive MS diagnosis, and nota lyme diagnosis, did you ever have any western blots through igenix? Did you have any bands besides 41?
Just curious. Even with MS, some don't have the onglical bands, so they would then seek out more regarding Lyme or similar diseases mimicing, but, with a positive CSF to the ongincal bands, it is a MS diagnosis.

The 41 you had, was cross reacting with the viral load, I think the neuro is right, unless there is other evidence to point you to Lyme now, as the symptoms are so similar, your viral load can cause some of the symptoms and the 41kd band, but even your co-infections were negative, ususally a LLMD for some sort of 'by the books' diagnosis, would take into consideration a positive co-infection, and consider a Lyme diagnosis.

I was also positive (in blood) for Bartonella H, and Babesia. If they would have not found anything via blood work or CSF for Lyme for me, yet found MS onglical bands, I would have had to face a MS diangosis is all I'm stating. You can read more on some of this by searching Brian Fallon, and Columbia University, they may even have studies you may be able to participate in depending on your clinical findings.
