Lyme Disease Board Index


Hello,
I'm new to the forum, but was wondering if anyone out there may be able to help. I was infected when I was a child in 1989, was misdiagnosed w/ leukemia until a sure Lymes diagnosis came a year later 1989. Treated w/ antibiotics.
Now, 20 years later, I've had a whole host of horrible symptoms, have many white matter lesions, and have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. My neuro thinks I'm nuts, but w/ my history, I decided to send samples to Igenex. My neuro interprets the results as negative, but she is sending me to an infectious disease MD here to confirm. I'm concerned that the doc I'm seeing next week will be unable to properly interpret them as well...so here is what my results say, and any help would be fully appreciated as it has been a long horrible battle.

IGM:
CDC result: Negative
18 +
34,39,41 (IND)
83-93 +
everything else is -.

IGG:
CDC result: Negative
23-25 (IND)
30 +
41+
everything else -.

Genomic - B burgdorferi Negative
Plasmid - B burgdorferi - Positive

I wasn't sure about plasmids. From what I understand they are kind of like a footprint left by bacteria you've had. Could my Plasmids be positive merely because I had it years ago? Or is that pointing to more doom?

I welcome your comments, and thank you.
No doctor here, but your western blot would IMO is quite positive for Lyme. A regular Dr will not be able to understand, you would simply be wasting your time. A good LLMD can read between the lines. By the way most LLMD consider IND as a weak positive, you have many Lyme specific bands! Lyme will give you those horrible symptoms, I finally have an app with LLMD myself, so really looking forward to sorting my 15 years of mystery symptoms
