I went to the rhumatologist the other day....pretty much a total waste of time, she gave me a prescrip for naprocyn but...she ordered some blood work.

She made a point of saying she is not a Lyme specialist but treats some Lyme patients for pain.

I am wondering if these blood tests are anywhere near complete and if I could request they could be sent to IGenix if they are the appropriate tests.

I should mention I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease two years ago.

The Lyme titer showed the antibodies. I also had the bullseye rash and many of the other symptoms.

I do plan on making an appointment with a LLMD.
(Thanks to my friends here at lymenet who sent me in a good direction).

So I am not sure I will go ahead with the tests that are ordered now and I don't plan on taking the naprocyn.

What can you tell me?

Thanks in advance!

ANA Reflex
C-Reactive Protein
Lyme AB/Relex
Lyme Western Blot

I would worry about taking the Naproxen. It could help with any pains you may be having.

Were you ever treated after you were diagnosed with lyme?

thanks for telling us you had LYME 2 YRS. AGO.

i don't have personal experience on lyme before and blood tests.

i do recommend CRP; i'd have BOTH TYPES; heart and other kind.

ana was positive 3 times for me called LUPUS BUT NEVER TREATED FOR IT.

cbc .. ok to do that.

rest no comments.

if you go western blot, i'd insist IGENEX OR FRY LABS; were you ever tested/treated for CO-INFECTIONS??

fry labs would save you money on co-infection testings! [group hug] [kiss]
