... 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)
... 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)

Lupus vs Lymes
Dec 29, 2003
... It is doubtful you have Lyme disease. First off, Lyme disease does not respond to prednisone (steroids). And although it could cause your whole body to ache, it usually only causes bad swelling in one joint. The reason your symptoms are such a close match is because these are all systemic illnesses which means that they can both effect every part of your body. So there is... (3 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.

... 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)

... 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)
... I had my testing through Igenex. My Igg and Igm are both IND but my bartonella is positive. From what I have read and what I have been told the treatment for Lyme and bartonella are basically the same. ... (41 replies)
... found different markers for different diseases and that is how FISH is done. It takes more prep time and the scope is expensive so this test costs more than to IgG and IgM antibody tests. ... (41 replies)

Laurie, your story..I don't even know what to say except if there is one good thing that can come out of other's suffering it is that others may learn from it and try to avoid that same pitfall.
