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.

Good!! Maybe you can get in earlier. Are you on his cancellation list?

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.
