Do you remember being bitten by a tick? Did you have a bull's eye rash?

FYI - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babesiosis

What are your symptoms? The tests are tricky for these things. They are not always accurate.

I am in this situation too.

I don't recall ever being bitten. Only band that shows up on IGeneX is 41 (although strongly positive).

Have you ever had a blood transfusion? This is the leading belief regarding how I might have been infected.

Was it Babesia WA-1 or Microti you tested positive for? I truly don't think we can take every positive antibody test to be absolute proof of CURRENT infection.

Unsure if this reply was for the OP or me, the last poster.

My LLMD thought enough of symptoms and test to treat with Mepron/Azithromycin/Artemesia(?).
