Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


I recently had WB for IgM and IgG done at IGenex as well as CD57 after years of symptoms (leukocytoclastic vasculitis, neck pain, daily headaches, migraines, arthritis, GI inflammation/pain, tendonitis, agitation, depression, anxiety, fatigue, brain fog, and I'm sure other things I am forgetting. I would say my symptoms are generally mild to moderate, though sometimes severe).

I am currently waiting for my LLMD appointment but was hoping to bounce my results off of others here and see if there is anything I should be asking my primary care physician to order while we wait for my LLMD appointment (about 2 weeks out)? I would very much appreciate any input, ideas, suggestions, or thoughts as this is all very confusing for me.

I'm particularly interested in any viral studies/tests that could be run to help rule out false positives? I'm not sure how open my primary care physician is going to be, but they did order the IGenex testing (at my request), so it seems there is some open-mindedness already on their part.

CD57 was 55.
IgG WB was negative, only 41 band showed IND.
IgM WB was IGenex/CDC positive:
18 ++
23-25, ++
31 ++
34 +
39 IND
41 ++
58 +
83-93 ++

When I had the leukocytoclastic vasculitis, I was sent to a rheumatologist who didn't find much of anything. I think my ANA came back slightly positive, but has since been negative. My dad has rheumatoid arthritis, though he has also said it was a connective tissue disease (?), one sister has fibromyalgia and the other has chronic lyme, and my brother has ankylosing spondylitis. The one link we all have is our dad, who grew up in Maine (us kids grew up in N. California and Oregon). Only me and my sister have been tested for Lyme, but we suspect it may be congenital. None the less, I would like thorough testing (as we all would) and want to make sure I'm being treated appropriately (not missing another condition/disease).
