First we have to remember that igenex gives the most reliable results for these tests. They say if your CD-57 is low that is a sign of Lyme. I believe it's true as a first sign. It wouldn't be low if your immune was in good shape. I am getting my blood taken next week and I still want to know how it is.

You more then likely have mycoplasma pneumonia, many lymies do. It is considered to be a co-infection of Lyme.  Same with EBV. I have both of those positive which is not unusual.

Your western blot shows 39 as present and 39 is specific to Lyme. So I would say you definetley have Lyme.
I would try to find an LLMD (Lyme literate Doctor) and start treatment. You can email ILADS.org and ask them for an LLMD in your area. The faster you start treatment the easier it will be.

Good luck!
