PLEASE NOTE: I have since had a WB test done by IGENEX but not received the results yet!

JUST WANT TO GET FEEDBACK on the 41 Band that shows positive on both the IGG and IGM.

THANK YOU!

well, I can't seem to get the copy on here but both the 41 bands on IGG and IGM were reactive (positive) What do those two mean?

Those mean that any organism that uses a flagella to propel itsself could be present

Not Lyme specific however a test without band 41 could be a false positive

That was the ONLY positive (the two 41's) ... everything else was negative ... NO IND.

Kim I have the same results- only positive 41 on bothh IgG and IgM. This was with MDL labs. My regular internal med dr said itt is negative. I went to a (actually Lyme Literate) infectious disease dr and he listened. Sent a bunch of labs to Stoney Brook. I should have results soon. My symptoms are mainly a internal buzzing vibration and fasciculations (twitches).

please print this off; read it over and over; it will make more sense as you become more familiar with lyme disease.

the nos. are shown in there too for ALL protein bands tested Smile

Kim- How did it turn out for you? I also have IgG 41 and IgM 41 per mdl labs in June and now last week. I did a 5 week course of oral amoxicillin. My only symptom is a little internal sort of tremor/vibration that I usually only feel at night, and only at rest. My dr is not sure. All my other lymelabs and co-infections negative.. I might go see a neurologist.

Linda ... my Igenex test was VERY positive even by CDC standards for IGM!

Lindavh, what exactly is this tremor/vibration? i thought i was going crazy! but almost every night i've been feeling like my bed has been shaking a little... i didn't know if it was me... or what, i am just curious how you would describe it, i couldnt tell if it was me physically moving, i dont live next to a highway. (wierd description) but... if i go back to my llmd and tell him another symptom i think he is going to dub me insane. (i had my first visit on monday, he didnt tell me what he thought at all, he just is sending to mdl and for an mra)... any advice would be helpful. (i have other symptoms too non stop headache for 8 months, memory loss, trouble with speaking at times, tired... but I just feel like alot of people on here have it so much worse... (i guess i forget the really bad times since im on topamax for the headache pain).
