So my doc had me to the new Advanced Lab Services Lyme culture test (see this post). He said I wasn't getting better fast enough on his treatment for CFS and wanted to get me checked out to make sure I didn't have something else as well. I've been having a hell of a time getting the results. The front office staff apparently hasn't been well educated on the procedures for this test, I keep getting the run around and then the lab didn't send the tests in time for my doctor's appointment (which was supposed to be today) so I had to reschedule after making a bunch of phone calls. Such unnecessary stress! Pretty sure I'm not the one who's supposed to be calling back and forth between the lab and the doctor's office trying to coordinate getting lab results sent! Anyway, they're sending the results on Monday, which will include pretty pictures of the actual bacteria they cultured and "other relevant information".
Anyway, front desk lady said I came up positive on the test. POSITIVE for Lyme! I am not going to get too worked up over it since she sounded a bit confused on the facts, and could have misunderstood the lab tech she ended up talking to because I kept getting different stories from everyone. Plus I don't have any idea how I could have gotten it, makes absolutely no sense. But, if that's true...this may change things. I told my brother about it and he said "we should celebrate". But heck no, no celebrations until I actually start to feel better! I will not have false hope!
My appointment has been rescheduled for next Wednesday and I might go crazy until then sitting on this information. Hopefully the lab will actually send the report on Monday and I won't have to keep rescheduling! I'll update when I find out more.
