Pages: 1Showing 1 - 15 of 15 for igg vs igm western blot. (0.005 seconds)

... I recently tested positive for bands 18, 30, 31, 34, 41, 45, 58, and 66 on the IgM WB, while the IgG WB was largely negative, except for IND at 41. From everything I've read, IgM response is first, followed by IgG in chronic Lyme. ... (10 replies)
... Just wanted to add that I also repeatedly have positive IgM and negative IgG test results -- 2 years after my initial lyme diagnosis. (And I definitely had lyme at that point 2 years ago -- bulls eye rash, fever, etc.) (10 replies)
... 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? ... (11 replies)

... I was only positive for bands 41, 39 and 23 on IGM but I have all the symptoms and never even thought about Lyme until neurologist told me I had it. ... (10 replies)
... in my opinion and my lllmd's opinion one of the best tests to run is the western blot, the IGg and the IGm, through a lab in california called IgeneX. ... (7 replies)
... I had an appointment but cancelled after getting my appointment in Hurricane. So much closer. He originally was a phychiatrist who turned to Alernative medicine. He got started in Lyme because his friends daughter got Lyme. She got it in Kanawha State Forest. (She had the ring and was treated with Doxy) but she continuted to deteriorate from a healthy active 18 year... (10 replies)
... Thanks Ticker. I've already emailed him, asking about appointment availability and fees. Hope to hear from him soon. (10 replies)
... No, I don't think I've been reported to the Health Dept. Maybe only those meeting CDC criteria for Lyme are reported? Is MccAllum a infectious disease doc? What kind of treatment did he put you on? From the CDC prevalance maps, Lyme only rarely occurs in WV. Of course that doesn't mean anything though if you've traveled. I think I got it in Santa Cruz, CA, where I... (10 replies)
... Hi velvetw. The closest Lyme doctor to WV that I know of is Dr. Chandra Swami in Hermitage, PA. He comes highly recommended. I have heard that he has had Lyme himself. (10 replies)
... A recommendation would be great. I'm in Charleston, WV. (10 replies)
... Hi velvetw. When Lyme disease is possible, the most important thing you can do is see a Lyme knowledgeable doctor. Not doing so is like seeing a podiatrist for a cardiac problem. If you need a doctor recommendation, let us know. (10 replies)
... So far I'm not on tx, and haven't been tested for coinfections. When my doctor (a resident at a family practice) suggested testing for EBV, ANA, and syphillis to rule out a false positive, I made a suggestion: rather than running all those tests (which would be expensive), why not find out which bands are cross-reactive with which antigens? For instance, if only the 28 KDa... (10 replies)
... Hi velvetw. Please do not worry so much about your results. No Lyme test i completely reliable. Some people who have Lyme do not test positive. You have a positive test and symptoms, you need to be treated. Your treatment should be guided by the type of symptoms you have, how you are responding to the meds, and if you have co-infections and not necessarily how long you... (10 replies)
... The testing for lyme is far from useful unless you have the strongest immune sytem to point out the best bands for a lyme western blot, and the labs usually are not specific enough in translating the test results to prove the shadings of what constitutes a positive or negative on the tests. ...

... Thanks for the explanation on the Western blot. I forget, which is recent infection vs. ... (7 replies)
