I would be interested in learning more from you. I have tested with 3 positive bands for Igg on the western blot. No mainstream MD will treat me. I believe I have had it for 5 yrs, but symptoms have become quite disabling this past year. Went to Mayo before Xmas and they told me flat out they do not believe in long term antibiotics and would not acknowledge I have chronic lyme. They advised pretty strongly against antibiotics, but I have no other diagnosis.
