... Thanks Denise. I appreciate your support and input. I do have to disagree with you, though about CFS and EBV. I believe CFS definitely exists, it is just a syndrome that has many underlying factors- almost like an AIDS syndrome where the problem with the immune system opens you up to lots of other infections. Also, I know someone who has chronic EBV with no other... (8 replies)

... Thanks Deejavu, I don't think my insurance company will reimburse me either. I guess it's just a chance that I have to take. I don't particulary want lyme disease but I am hoping this will be positive. I am sick of searching for answers and suffering without treatment. I am tired of being dx'd with things and learning to accept them only to have it taken away. It... (6 replies)

... The doc who ran the test only sent me a letter stating I showed a past infection of EBV and that my antibodies will be positive for this infection for many years. But I don't have the actual tests with the numbers. ... (22 replies)

... mominca - If I were you I would call Dr. Charles Jone's office is New Haven, CT. They may even answer your question over the telephone. He is the only pediatric lyme doctor in the world I believe. Laurieblah's son here on Healthboards has seen him. This is an extremely important question and one that you need a definitive answer to since so much is at risk...your son's... (5 replies)
... Thanks all for your input, and to ncgirl88 for your very helpful suggestion! I really needed some opinions about what to do from people who have been there before, because there is not a lot of awareness about Lyme where I live ( and therefore a lot of skepticism. I think we are so accustomed to putting a lot of trust and faith in conventional docs (and why... (5 replies)
... Hi mominca. It is true, no Lyme test is completely reliable. It seems to me that there are false negatives, not false positives. You have symptoms and nothing else has been found. You have been diagnosed by an excellent doctor. I am sure he would not diagnose you if he did not believe you have Lyme. Did he test you for the co-infections? Regarding your son, I highly...

... Hi TG. I guess it just means you are super positive on Lyme specific bands. Treatment choice and length should always determined on an indivudual basis. ... (1 replies)
... Hi cj. I am sorry you have Lyme but at least you now have answers and can get the treatment you need. It is always good to get copies of your test results. I recommend having all Lyme and co-infection testing done at IgeneX. Do you have an appointment lined up with a Lyme doctor? (8 replies)
... Hi fotomom. I brought to the top of the board the western blot band explanation post. Many of the Lyme specific bands on your test are either positive or equivocal. ... (1 replies)
... Hmmm, I see your point. Maybe that's why my doctor had me do the western blot first. I can tell you that I had the most miserable herx reaction my first few days on meds, I mean like I might as well have just been dead because it almost killed me. Now the reactions are much better but not gone completely, so the test is showing readings that my syptoms are consistent with. ... (13 replies)
... I wasn't sure about the Bowen's accurcacy as I read that they tested positive on most all things, even Whale blood. ... (13 replies)
... I was tested through Igenex and met the criteria for Lyme on their test but on the same paper-it said I have also met cdc's criteria and the health board would be notified that I have Lyme. I wish all of you the best and my prayers are with each and everyone of you! (6 replies)

They put me on Doxy 400 aday and cipro, diflucan and I have to wait for the other results the lab Igenex didn' do some of the test so I had to have them done again, and my hubby is on zithromax diflucan and a few others I have to pick up today.
