    I went in with my history of Left Bundle Branch Block, cardiomyopathy, fibromyalgia, cognitive problems and Igenex Lyme lab results (Igenex positive/CDC negative)
    He admitted that he was new and didn't know much about Chronic Lyme and would re-review the labs, BUT by the end of the day I had had a Lumbar Puncture for full workup, an order for full lab workup, an order for a brain MRI and a script for Doxycylcline once the labwork is drawn. I bet he will talk it over with some of the older docs in the practice (several of whom treat chronic Lyme...so it could go either way...but, it's a start.
    The labs are NOT being sent to Igenex...will be interesting to see results...he ordered PCR tests and HIV, VDRL, and some others. I will send in more info as it comes up. Thnaks for your support and opinions!
