    Im not Munch, but you do show Lyme activity. If I were you, I would go to a LLMD for a Consult. Good luck, Sandie

    Yes, you do show some activity just like Buttercakes said. I'd see a LLMD if I were you.

    Band 41 is for the flagellin or tail of the spirochete. If you have anything showing on this band then it's either Lyme, syphilis, or dental disease.

    If your teeth are in good shape it's not dental disease and most likely you don't have syphilis. So that leaves Lyme!

    The IFA part of the test is another ELISA test. Do you live in an endemic area? Do you have other symptoms?
