jan251 Posted November 13, 2016 Report Share Posted November 13, 2016 (edited) Just putting this out here in case anyone has any experience or thoughts. I have always felt a little weird about our lyme results, that perhaps they mean something but not necessarily lyme. Ds had positive lyme IgM from Igenex (only one band for IgG, 41) but negative Labcorp twice, including the full IgG WB, though full Labcorp IgG WB was months after we had done several months of combo antibiotics and herbals for lyme and coinfections. We never saw a hint of improvement in OCD on combo antibiotics. (Also had elevated strep and myco titers for a long time.) We are currently doing IVIg and crossing our fingers. Lots of other infections were tested for in the traditional way (individual tests from labcorp). Poking around, I am finding the possibility that the WB might detect things other than lyme, e.g. this discussion http://www.lymeneteurope.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1686&p=16959 Just wondered if anyone's explored other infections that might have been indicated by the WB. On my ds's Igenex, 18 kda was the most positive IgM, ++. The linked discussion above points to the possibility of c. pneumonia though I don't know much about it. hmmm... I found this so far about various chlamydia species: the protein with a molecular mass of 18 kilodaltons (kDa) responded strongly compared with a higher-molecular-mass protein that varied from 27 to 32 kDa with each chlamydia strain tested.
