Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


Do you have Lyme disease? Maybe. I can't really tell from those results you posted alone; no one can.

The CD57 and natural killer cell stuff isn't really important in diagnosis.

What's important are your western blot results. That's your bands 41, 39, and 51, etc. You have only 3 bands positive on both IgG and IgM, and 41 isn't usually significant in itself because it's very common in the general population. That's because other simple infections can register a positive 41 band as well.

Lyme Disease is a clinical diagnosis, meaning that the signs and symptoms you have, as well as certain risk factors, determine whether you have the disease along with the lab results. Considering either one in isolation of the other might lead to the wrong conclusion.

I would stay on the list to see the Lyme specialist. Show him your results, and tell him your symptoms and where you live. He should be able to determine whether you have got the disease or not...but even LLMDs don't catch everything. Sometimes, it just ends up being a diagnosis of exclusion :/

But anyways, to answer your question I recommend staying on the list because you may have Lyme.
