ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

Help needed with understanding a result

    So I lost my cobra insurance recently, and was printing out all my lab results that Aetna has just to have a record of them.

    I found a test that was done that I was not sure of, and tried looking up information online. From what Im gathering, I have tested positive for Babesia, but Im not sure if thats accurate or not.

    The test itself was Babesia Microti Ab.IGM and the result was 1.43. From what Im understanding, this test result should not be higher than 1.20.

    Is this a positive result? And if it is, is there a reason my doctor did not inform me/treat me/test me for Lyme disease? Because I don't have insurance (and wont until January) I cant go running to the doctor to request a test be done, but obviously if what I am reading is true- I am very worried.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
