If symptoms go away on their own years after treatment and remission the same situation if it is still in your system. Would new treatment still be the same effect on possible outcome.

I guess so. For me dormant and remission are the same, what's the difference for you?

I was thinking that at first. But I think my symptoms went dormant because it was years after unsuccessful abx treatment. Remission-I think is when you are treated and symptoms go away with treatment. Both I guess still have bacteria still in your body that can reactivate.

Since there is no test to know if you are indeed 100% free of the offending organism then there can be no certainty of infected/uninfected status and therefore the definition of remission or dormant can only be based on symptoms or degree of/lack of symptoms.
This then becomes highly subjective as many of the symptoms can only be measured by the person experiencing them and I am not sure one could differentiate between dormant and remission based on the subjective experience of symptoms so the distinction if there is one seems mute to me.

I did read on Lyme disease.org the other day in an article by J. Burrasco that he believes the CD57+ count is only suppressed by Lyme and not the co-infections - and that he considers the CD57+ count recovery ( in % terms) as the best indicator/predictor of whether a patient will recover or not.
For example - he believes that if a patient has a normal CD57+ count by the end of ABX treatment then they will very likely recover - if not they will likely relapse. So perhaps that is a useful pointer.
