If either the IgG or IgM is positive, it's considered a positive test, so, congratulations, you finally found out what's wrong. [Smile]

Your Lyme IgM appears to be positive by CDC and IgeneX standards.

Just so you know, band 39 is highly specific for Lyme disease

Basically, IgM's are the antibodies that are first to be produced when an infection appears, then IgG will take over fighting the pathogen on a more long term basis.

Keep in mind that lab tests alone do not make a diagnosis of Lyme disease. The diagnosis should be made with the whole clinical picture in mind.

Yup, you got definitely got it. Not everyone is both CDC and Igenix positive (in fact, some people never test positive on a Western Blot). I hope you have a good LLMD! If you haven't found one, try joining your state or local Lyme group.

To help you figure out the whole Lyme puzzle, I highly recommend printing out Dr. Burrascano's "Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines" at the ilads website: http://ilads.org/guidelines.html

Also, the book "Everything you Need to Know about Lyme Disease and other Tick-Borne Disorders" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner is also an excellent resource. It's available at Amazon, and probably at your local library. No one hear mentions it much, but I found it incredibly useful.

Good luck with beginning your treatment!

Looks like Lyme to me....and you are CDC positive to boot!

I hope you have a LLMD to treat.

Band 39: Unknown what this antigen is, but based on research at the National Institute of Health (NIH), other Borrelia (such as Borrelia recurrentis that causes relapsing fever), do not even have the genetics to code for the 39 kDa antigen, much less produce it. It is the most specific antibody for borreliosis of all.
