    I had private bloods done and the ones which were abnormal were;
    T Cells CD3 +85.10 range 62-80
    CD57 + NK cells (absolute) -59 range 100-360
    It says this indicates chronic immune suppression.
    Any ideas? I haven't been well for 15yrs and still no answers.
    Also i tested weak positive for Borellia.

    I'm not a Doctor but I guess there's a relatively strong possibility of having lyme disease. CD57 is also related to borrelia and is low in cases of lyme infections, but I can't be sure that's what you have and you should ask a specialist. Also I don't know what lyme test you have done and how ''weak positive'' the test showed, but if I was you I would try to find a lyme specialist and investigate on this!
    Hope you can find more informations ;)
    Regards

    My CD57 is low 39 (60-360), and no Lyme infection or co-infections neither. But I have EBV...

    Bioresonance? Is it a device that is supposed to diagnose you with electric current going through your body?

    I would not rely on it. If you have an insurance, the standard serology are preferable.
