THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

Part 3 LYME TESTING

LYME TESTING - Part 3
   When you go to the doctor now, this is how I feel it should be. You tell the doc that you suspect a possible lyme infection. There should be dialog next. Doctor asks: 1. How long ago did you notice the tick? 2. Did or do you have a rash? This rash only shows up in less than 40% of lyme cases.3. Have you been sick and treated with antibiotics since you were bitten by a tick. There are many questions that can be asked about lyme disease to evaluate a patient for a clinical diagnosis. But the biggest thing now is if you have been treated for anything with antibiotics after your tick bite. An Elisa or Western Blot test probably won't be accurate anyway. Then you need a test from i-genex. A testing laboratory in California that now use a test that tests for Lyme and many co-infections is a must for advanced lyme sufferers if they are sick and suspected of being lyme infected. They may not have lyme at all.They may have a tick borne illness or a parasite called Babesia which my wife suffers greatly. She is possibly gaining grown as we speak with the help of an infected lyme literate doctor. But then there are those who are clinically diagnosed because they can not get a positive test and should be on antibiotics if nothing more than to see if they are better in a few weeks. That is a dead giveaway. Pun not intended.
