Perhaps I’m writing this too soon, but I’d really like to talk to someone, someone I just don’t have right now. So the blog is where I turn.
If you follow me on Instagram you would of seen a little over two weeks ago I was bitten by a tick whilst walking in the forest. Thank fully I was able to get to the clinic and have the tick removed within three hours of noticing it.
But that hasn’t stopped me worrying. Last Saturday I went for a general check up with my Gyno, He asked me to go for a full blood work check up. So I mentioned to him I had been bitten by a tick. So he added another blood test to the works and went a head and tested me for Lyme diseases
The over all blood work came back OK although I’m slightly anaemic.
Last night I received the blood work from the Lyme disease test. I’m worried, Really worried. .
My igG is high.
My igM is fine.
There is a note on the bottom on the paper work stating they would like to me to go in for a further test called Western Bolt.
After spending way to much time on Google last night and this morning I’m really scared. A high IgG points to a positive test.
I’ve given all my information to my husband who will be calling my doctor on his personal mobile today to see if I should move my next appointment forward. (I have a blood work review on October 18th.)
Is there anybody out there who has any experience with blood work, how to read blood work, Lyme disease or just some reassurance. :(
