    My doctor put me in for a Lyme Test. I went along & there was confusion with what was on the test form.

    It mentioned a Serum test but also a swab test but was not very clear.

    The nurse rang the lab & they said just send a blood test & check with my doctor on the swab test.

    My doctor is away for a week so I can't speak to him till then.

    Anyone had one of these test through the NHS in the UK & can tell me what form their tests took, please.

    Best wishes

    scroll down about 10 posts, I have a lengthy thread going on with links to lyme sites... I'm sure you can find some places with info about testing in the UK, perhaps flash.lymenet.org for one, not sure tho.

    all the best,
    Victoria

    The NHS tests are renowned for showing false negatives, it did for me. Here's the Eurolyme board:
