    I got my WB results back from Igenex and I really don't know what to think of them.

    It looks like there's a lot more activity on the IgM than the IgG and I don't understand how that's possible when I've had symptoms for about 8 months now.

    There's a chance I could have been bitten several years ago growing up in Northern California, or sometime in the last 4 years in Europe. I was living in the UK when I first got sick.

    Does anyone think it's worth seeking out a LLMD with these results?

    Thank you :)

    You do have some activity. In my opinion its worth having an LLMD review the results.

    Good luck to you!

    You do need to have a LLMD check it out also. IND means it is a weak positive. So as mentioned you have some activity going on in you.
    I would even go to say that my LLMD looking at this along with your symptoms would conclude lyme.

    My results were very much like yours. (results are in my profile)

    I have recovered with heparin, hormones, Abx and yeast meds.

    Thanks guys! That's kind of what I was expecting, and it's good to get some re-assurance from people with Lyme. I am definitely going to go ahead and seek out a LLMD.

    Hopefully that'll be the first doctor I see who doesn't think I'm crazy for wanting to confirm a test result that says "Negative" at the top. ;)
