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?

In some cases but...: Noted lyme specialist raphael stricker discovered that many lyme patients have a low cd57 count (this is a subset of a type of white blood cell called natural killer cells) and that the level often increases as patents improve. However, not all lyme patients have low cd57 counts. A low cd57 may be supportive of a lyme diagnosis but a high level in no way rules it out. See my comment for more info:. ...Read more
