I test positive for lyme according to west coast IGENEX lab- bands 41, and 31. Positive for IGENEX is 2 bands/not the 5 required by the CDS.
This shows exposure /antibodies to lyme is my understanding. There is no definite test for lyme-lyme is very hard to test for is my understanding. I worry about Lyme being the new catch all.
I have lots of MS symptoms- optic neuritis, numbness, balance, gait, weakness, coordination, shaky, dizzy etc. plus a alot more- jerking of limbs, hands, fingers, toes, body jerks forward when laying down, neck jerking- and unbearable pressure in head/eyes shaking, weak shaky neck feels straining to hold head. up. Nervous system in overdrive, insomnia etc
I've become hypersensitive to supplements/medication. The first pharmecuticals I've taken set off this chain reaction/down. I'm terrified my body cannot standup to aggressive abx treatment/may cause seizures and continue this downward spiral (any worse and i'll be in bed). Of course the lyme folks say you have to get a whole lot worse before you get better and years and years of abx for late stage neuro lyme.. /very difficult to treat. My sleep cycle is so sensitive anything disrupts it my entire life.. and not sleeping now/body can't heal.
It's a nightmare for me right now. Thanks for listening.
