I sent my blood out to get tested for a full panel from Armin Labs and got back some results I was not prepared for.

I don't have any co infections.

The entire borrelia antigen was tested and found to be borderline/very weak -- +2.

CD57 was 61. It said I had chronic immune suppression.

HOWEVER: I am showing THREE active viruses -- Cytomegalovirus, Coxsackievirus, and Epstein Barr. All very active and at work in my body.

I don't know what to do with this information. Does anyone else know what to do about it?

if you have immune suppression, that may be the reason borrelia antigen is weak and the other usual co-infections test negative.

They should turn positive if you can get treated for whatever.

Lyme is a clinical diagnosis as are co-infections because testing is not accurate. I think it is rare for a chronic lyme patient to have no co-infections.

A below normal CD57 count is associated with chronic lyme disease.

Hopefully you are seeing a reputable ILADS trained lyme doctor who can help you sort through your symptoms and treat each infection that is causing you to be sick.

It is not at all unusual for chronic lyme patients to have active viruses. Once lyme is treated you will be better equipped to fight off other infections.

If you don't have a lyme doctor go to the seeking doctors section and ask for help.
