Lyme Disease Poll Results

Tired of Lyme recently polled 30 people and asked them, "How many tests did you have before you received a positive diagnosis for Lyme Disease?"

60% of the people or every 3 out of 5 people, who now have a positive Lyme diagnosis, did not receive a positive diagnosis on their first test attempt.

My point is don't take these tests for their entirety. They're very flawed. It is possible to have Lyme Disease tests that come back negative despite having Lyme Disease.

Don't be sorry! You're more than welcome to contribute to the new one Wink

Yeah, tests suck. I wish people didn't depend on them like the air we breathe to give us answers.

Thanks Wlk Wink

Weasy,

Believe it or not, the first test I ran with Labcorp came back positive. I never tested with Igenex or anyone else. I hope that was accurate.......

I am planing to stop my Doxy treatment in two more weeks ( total is 8 weeks), and then

planning on taking Banderol and Samento for at least a year. Any suggestions. I just started to feel better with almost all panic and anxiety for two days now.....

Yassi.. You got the symptoms and you got the positive results. The symptoms kind of explain or back up the test.

I'm seeing my N.D. on Wednesday and we're going to discuss where I'm going with my protocol as well.

Yeah all my tests through LabCorp and Quest were completely negative. Nothing was reactive.

I couldn't believe how deceived I was. The wasted months..
