I am so upset right now. Just found out that my CD57 is now a 51. When I started treatment it was a 48 and after 5 months of abx it was up to a 99. I was feeling really good at that time and we discontinued abx.

At that time I did IV chelation w/ DMPS (push) to deal w/ heavy metals. I was so encouraged when I found out my mercury levels went way down, but I had an allergic reaction so I stopped the chelation.

I had my CD57 tested and it dropped to the 60's (don't know the exact number).

My LLNP had me start taking LDN and siberian ginseng but just got my number back from last week's test and it is now down to a 51.

It is so strange. Overall I feel pretty OK. I work out a few times a week, do my day to day routine and take care of my two boys ages 4 and 2.

I am not sure what I should do. Should I go back on abx? Should I ask for any specific tests to check my lyme/bart numbers? I had seriously been considering pregnancy and now not sure what to do about that either.

Just feeling really so upset/deflated...

I have read lots of accounts of people whose CD57 scores did not seem to match their sense of well-being. I decided not to have the tests for this very reason.

I should try not to get too bothered by the variations: after all, it's how you feel that is the best guide to how you are.
