Nothing is ever cut and dry these days. Sheesh. I tested negative at kaiser but if i have lyme its been at least a few years and i wanted to test through igenex to be sure. My doc signed the consent form for me BUT also told me....YOU KNOW, WE GET A LOT OF POSITIVES THAT SHOW UP OUT FROM THAT PARTICULAR LAB. YOU MAY TEST POSITIVE BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN U HAVE LYME. COULD JUST MEAN YOU HAD A REACTION FROM A PAST TICK BITE OF SOME SORT IN THE PAST. lol. So...what the *&^%! Why are CFS/Fibro/Candida/Lyme and everything that sounds like ME so dang hard to test?!
