Is Igenex Lyme testing worth paying for when I've already had hospital labs done?

My daughter was hospitalized for Guillain Barre syndrome and they did all the IGG/IGM tests for western blot, 2 types of erlichia, lyme, and rocky mtn spotted fever.  Is it worth doing the Igenex testing as well? We are in Tennessee.

The short answer to this is yes
Visit the facebook page the.Lyme Disease Association of Tennessee for details.
It's best to get a good LLMD (lyme literate medical doctor ) to help  your daughter.
There's far too much controversy with the diagnosis and
treatment of Lyme's disease, so where you go for this, can make all the difference!
Most doctors and hospitals will only diagnose and treat acute lyme's, and do not consider the chronic nature of this infection as an "established" condition!
Best wishes,
Niko
