I was sooo afraid it was going to be negative but it was positive! Not CDC positive but that's about like finding the golden ticket in a Wonka chocolate bar [Smile]

IGM:
31 ++
41 +
83-91+

IGG (said negative on this but...?)
30 +
31 IND
39 IND
41 ++
58 ++

I think my doc was happier than I was. He said this was good, this can be treated. But he's not an LLMD and I've been sick wth this for at least 20-25 years if not born with it which would be almost 40 years so I was just thinking of the road ahead.

But I am thrilled wth the positive - maybe I can convince my in-laws that I'm not lazy [Smile] .

Oh, and the IFA was 40 (equivocal). Less than 40 being negative and = or above 80 being positive. Doc said this wud be treated as positive wth the other results.

My first LLMD appt is in Feb. The doc here hopes I can get in sooner and is eager to see what LLMD will do. He himself is not comfortable treating because he knows how complex treatment can be especially since I told him I think Babesia is probably the bigger problem for me right now.

I'm thanking God as much for the local doc who doesn't think I'm crazy as I am for the positive WB!

Wow, congratulations on your test results! For many of us, seeing so many plus signs are only a dream!

And, yes, your local doc sounds like a good guy!

Have you considered starting the Salt/S protocol while you wait for your LLMD appointment?

Salt/C addresses parasites, lyme and babesia (on the website) and maybe bartonella too.

See www.lymephotos.com for more information. It would be a thorough and affordable way to treat on your own while you wait.

glm1111 (gael) has gotten rid of all her symptoms (lyme, bartonella, babesia) using Salt/C.

Thanks Lymetoo - I have actually read thru that a couple of times and that's the LLMD I'll be seeing in Feb.

Thanks Hens- I did try Parastroy last week but I can't handle some of the things in it- probably the OLE and licorice- tried those yrs ago more than once and always reacted. Hoped that had changed but obviously not.

After just 1 day felt like a rash in my throat and mouth. Very uncomfortable.

Can't do vit C either because it causes the vulvodynia to flare up- even more uncomfortable! I really hope with treatment I'll be able to tolerate vit c again. (And get rid of the vulvodynia!!)

I'm not sure what else to try for parasites that will be effective and that I can tolerate. Who knows what other things I was reacting to in the Parastroy.

That's a hard part in all this- what's great for one person won't necessarily work for another.

Yes. I'm hoping they'll call but I'm on the 1 week ahead notice for DH to be able to get off work to take me. It's about a 7 hr drive from me.

I'll just keep trusting God for the timing. There may be something else I need to know before my appt or something like that.

Wow:

Definite confirmation of exposure.

Babs - minimun of 8 months treatment of Mepron and Zithromax (per my daugher's LLMD). It took my daugher over 12 months for Babs.

Dr. H did a presentation on Babs at ILADS. I haven't watched the excerp but will tomorrow.

I am definitely not looking forward to the treatment process but at least that is much more hopeful than trying to keep the "fibromyalgia" from getting the best of me- a battle I have been sadly losing for many years.

The folks here on lymenet have provided me with a wealth of info that I hope has me better equipped to figure out how to win the Lyme & co war in this sad body. I appreciate ppl sharing what their experiences.

It really helps the rest of us come-lately's to avoid at least some of the pitfalls. Thanks lymenet peeps!

I've known for about 3-4 mths that it was most likely lyme and co that I have but since I couldnt get in to the LLMD til Feb I figured I'd just take it slow and get a better idea of how to go forward - I've been sick for so long, what's another few mths to get my ducks in a row?

Of course hardly anything works out like you plan, but you still gota plan! At least I do.
