They did it with blood tests at an ILADS institution. I was not tested for all the co-infections. I have the chlamydia one's to go through also. Which I will do soon. Now I did not have antibodies for the infections. I had cell acitivity which was pretty high for Borrelia. They explained that I could have a possible infection and put me on the antibiotics. After 4-5 weeks my heart started to hurt (maybe herxheimer, I don't know, but usually your heart hurting is not a side effect of antibiotics, which makes me think that the answer lies there somewhere too) I quit the treatment. Went on with my life. Which was maybe stupid. Now they have to use another drug to treat me. Also on another note, I haven't had any fever for about 2 years which makes me think that my immune system is supressed in some way. I only have flu like sympthoms. I think my answer lies in there somewhere. Or at least I hope so. I'm so young. If it turns out to be ALS then at least I know it was because of tick and a co-infection that I treated to late. Borrelia
The results of lymphocyte transformation tests are an indication for a current cellular
activity against Borrelia burgdorferi.
Please recognise, that there were less lymphocytes in general for stimulation in Elispot-
LTT, so that the actual activity results can be higher for Borrelia burgdorferi. Ehrlichia
The result of the Elispot-Lymphocyte-Transformation-Test is an indication for a
borderline actual cellular activity against Ehrlichia.
