Band 41 is showing an infection, do you know if any other bands had a + or ++ or any IND (indeterminate)?
Did you get tested for co-infections. Shortness of breath or air hunger is a symptom of Babesia. My LLMD feels that if you live in the USA and have Lyme you also have Babesia. If you live in Europe, you can have Lyme Disease without Babesia. Different ticks carry different infections.
An LLMD (lyme literate MD) would check your body for signs of Bartonella (another co-infection) and have you tested at a tick lab. There are several tick labs but it's seems like IgeniX in Palo Alto, CA is used a lot by LLMD's.
Also to correct my horrid typing, Fry Labs, not Frey, as I typed before, is in Arizonia and does a lot of co-infection testing.
You also have to understand that to be CDC positive you need 5 of the 10 bands positive, as advised by the ID doctors. An LLMD looks at testing, if you have band 41 positive and any Lyme specific band positive you have Lyme. Also, IND is taken as a positive since something was present on the band but the lab did not call it positive, just indeterminate.
In 12 years of being sick, I tested negative twice, once at Lab Corp and once at Quest. 12 years later tested by tick labs, I had 4 positives, some being Lyme specific bands and 3 IND bands. I am still not CDC positive but I do have Lyme and co-infections. A year into my treatment for tick borne disease I can see a different in my fatigue, much better, brain fog has lifted my balance is better, my memory is better and I sleep like a baby. I can now function almost like a normal person. Still not quite there but working on it.
