Getting retested (Igenex? what test?)
So I had the ELISA test done several times all with negative results about 6 months ago. I also had a western blot test from Imugen which only showed a positive band for 41 which is very common.

I just need some kind of conformation that I defiantly have lyme. I just ordered an Igenex kit. Which test should I have done? My Doc doesn't think I have any co-infections and recommended the western blot again if I do any. Is this the best one? Does anyone have experience with Igenex or similar labs? I don't think Imugen was very good but I'm no expert.

I have also been on antibiotics and supplements for over 3 months. Will this affect my testing if I have it redone? Thanks!

Rather than get the tests run again, what about taking the existing test results (all of them) to another doc for a review?

Is there a chance to do an EliSpot (cellular test) in the US? I've send mine to Germany, at BCA-clinic. i obviously have been the "clear type" positive for it. Elisa was negative, Blot was positive too.
