So like most, 7 months ago I had a negative CDC Lyme test and so my primary Dr does not believe I have this and does not believe in Chronic Lyme (I specifically asked him). At that time, I also went to a LLMD and had iGenex test, which was also negative, but had specific Lyme bands so I was diagnosed with Lyme and also came back CDC positive for Babesia. I have been treating with anti-biotics and herbal supplements for about 7 months and I'm wondering if anyone has gone back to their Dr to get another CDC test done for Lyme and it came up positive? I'm thinking of making an appointment to do this after I've been treating for about a year. I have heard that you can come back positive because it will now see the antibodies, where as before there was none. I've had Lyme for 11 years and have been through 3 surgeries, including brain surgery for Chiari Malformation, had meningitis, been mis-diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and basically been told I am a hypochondriac and that all my symptoms are all "in my head" and there is something mental going on.
My reason for wanting to do this, is first to become a statistic so maybe the CDC will someday pull their heads out of their behinds and get on the ball and stop treating this like a nuisance easily treatable disease and I also want it in my medical record that I have Lyme at my primary physicians office.
