High Esr Crp Lyme Disease
I have been diagnosis with Lyme disease but my doctor thinks my hip pain is unrelated because my sed rate is zero and CRP is also low. Does this make sense?
Yes: Yes, it makes sense. Don't fall into the trap of blaming every ache and pain on lyme. I would try taking a yoga class since you are so young. With that said, medicine does not have a lot of absolutes and if the pain progressed over months, i would proceed to an mri. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Was test for Lyme disease and test seem to be normal except for igm is 1.32 high and igm p23 present all else says absent, does this mean I have Lyme?

If you've got lab support for your gluten allergy (which also has "pop" proponents), this is your explanation instead. ...Read more
My husband has elevated liver enzymes and an enlarged spleen. He was bitten by a tick about 4 yrs ago and was treated for Lyme disease with a zpack.?
Needs evaluation: Not all tick bites cause lyme, but if he got lyme a z-pak is not adequate treatment so he likely has chronic lyme. Ticks can also transmit babesia, bartonella, rickettsia & other serious infections. These might be causing his problems & his problems might be unrelated to the bite. He needs a thorough medical evaluation including a doc knowledgeable about lyme & co-infections. See www.Ilads.Org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Many factors : Depends on a lot of things. Untreated, lyme disease can spread to many organs over weeks & months, yet still not show symptoms. Or, a person could get very ill within days of the tick bite. Untreated, lyme disease does not go away by itself, even if the symptoms get better. Complete treatment is necessary, for weeks if just after tick bite, and months if treatment delayed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
