I asked a new question...
I asked a new question because you were helpful and being honest. I forgot to ask .. if I had Postive IgM 39,23,41. And I had IGg 18,66,41. Being that the 39 and 23 we’re Postive. Do they automatically go over to IGg. ( I mean know matter what they picked up ). ?

Certain bands are seen with IgM and certain bands with IgG. Numbers only matter with either the G separate from the M. Actually, if you have IgM antibodies characteristic for Lymes disease but your IgG doesn’t have five bands considered diagnostic then it probably isn’t Lymes. However, some immunologists put more weight on certain bands so that if three bands are found that match the bands they put more weight on then they say, “yes it’s Lymes”. I have to retract thinking your IgM was Lymes when your IgG doesn’t confirm it. However, repeating the testing in six weeks may show more bands consistent with Lymes. Thanks for allowing me to see the gray areas with testing for Lymes disease. Lymes is the great mimic when it comes to diseases. It may be Lymes, but it appears as some virus such as cytomegalovirus.

39,23,18,93 are Lyme specific

The 3 IGg bands I have are part of the 5 bands .. this is why so many are misdiagnosed for Lyme . The testing is ridiculous. How can you have a current and past infection. This is all has to do with the vaccine. Jimmy walker was not CDC Postive either but enough to diagnose. I just want a diagnoses they need to make a yes or no text. The C6 peptide is 95% also for Lyme which is different than the regular Eliza. I’m questioning the test, my doctor said absolutely. But very LLMD says you have Lyme. So I was just curious if bands that you have on IgM automatically go over to IGg. They picked up some infection?
You can have IgM from acute stage(even without symptoms) and early manifestation of IgG. The testing is for either M or G and there may be similarities but they don’t matter. You may get answers in time.

in I’m in NJ where this is high. You also can’t go off the CDC in 3 states. They just changed the guidelines. Hopefully next test
Too much thinking when it comes to Lymes disease.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
