    Good luck on your results! I was tested for Lyme a few months ago and it turned out I have Lyme Disease. While I am not glad I have Lyme disease, I am glad I finally have something that can be seen on a blood test, if you know what I mean. I had so many come back normal that I thought I was going crazy there for awhile. I knew I was really sick, haha! I'm now on enough antibiotics to choke a horse! I am having awful herxing from the antibiotics, but I just keep telling myself that my body is fighting and I will get better some day!
    Take Care!

    Just make sure your doctor knows what he/she is doing regarding the lyme tests. It is very common for them to come out false/positive. If they are positive, I would see if there are any "followup" tests to confirm the results. I've heard stories about people being told they have lyme, when, in fact, they don't.

    Good luck to you.
