Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
Are those your lyme IG titers?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
The data do not give any information on Babesia but it is possible that you have this at the same time as lymes.
I, personally, have had lymes twice and both times it responded well to 100mg doxycycline twice daily for 21 days.
From what you have posted you are getting excellent care and workup.
I would caution you not to replace the doxycycline therapy with herbal medication.....although taking both at once won't hurt anything in the majority of cases.
Does this make sense to you?
I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter. And, don’t forget, I work for tips. I would also be happy to continue to answer any more questions you have until we have resolved your concern.

No. The doxycycline would not normally cause this.A bone marrow biopsy, which it sounds like you are awaiting results from, should be able to get to the bottom of what is going on .
At this point a long laundry list of possible causes would not be very helpful, especially as it seems that you are going to have some good answers soon.
Make sense to you?
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
I can understand how you are feeling but, trust me, your doctors do not need you to ask well informed questions in order to do their job.
The possible causes of your results consists of a very long and extensive list of possibilities which is beyond the scope of this forum. I'm sure you can understand that .
I hope you feel better soon.
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. You may also receive an email survey after our chat, if you can please give me the top rating in all areas. It has been a pleasure to assist you today.Thanks in advance,Dr. Rick MD FACS
As far as your data shows there are no immediate dangers that your blood morphology brings to mind.
It, really, sounds like you are getting excellent care.
So. Don't start worrying at this point. I bet everything will be OK.
