Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

Spanky: Not sure, but sounds like I would have Lyme using the pre-Dearborn criteria. Had the neuro symptoms (why I was tested) plus the cardio and positive ELISA. And just, in addition to that...if I could, a few personal thoughts, reflections, I can't escape, that have occurred to me about all of ...

Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

"radicale": Looking back through your posts I noticed that the ELISA reactivity increased over time. At one point wasn't this considered enough evidence? Not sure what you mean there. All three screens were deemed to be positive. Not as far as I know. No. Before Dearborn the criteria were: The origi...

Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

"radicale": In that case I think you either had Lyme Disease or some yet to be discovered infection. Yep. That's kinda where my head has been with this whole thing for the past ten years. To my mind, and my doctors, also...the question isn't about the correctness of the diagnosis...but what happened...

Re: ILADS Conference--Speakers' fees?

"radicale": Pick any one of these. The most interesting for you may be chlamydia pneumoniae which showed ELISA cross-reactivity but not Western Blot. Again, not likely.

Do you agree that this is correct or not: Remember that the US diagnosis chronic Lyme disease is used (at least it has been in this forum) for symptoms that have lasted for a long time =it is the symptoms that are chronic after trea...
