I’ve been sick for about 2 years now. I have a lot of pain, tired all the time, unrefreshing sleep, brain fog, sensory sensitivity, chronic diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, basically the works. I’ve been diagnosed with CFS/ME by the Open Medicine Clinic. During the lab work up at open med, I was tested for Lyme using a Quest western blot. None of the IgM bands were reactive, but ALL of the IgG bands were reactive. Quest marked this as a positive test result.
I also had a IGeneX test done and the results are copied below:
which they called negative.
I know the IGeneX is supposed to be more sensitive, but I don’t know what to make of a positive (all bands reactive) Quest test result and a negative IGeneX test. Any thoughts?
