Labs performing a Western blot use electricity to separate proteins called antigens into bands. The read-out from the Western blot looks like a bar code. The lab compares the pattern produced by running the test with your blood to a template pattern representing known cases of Lyme disease. If your blot has bands in the right places, and the right number of bands, it is positive.
The CDC requires 5 out of 10 bands for a positive test result on the IgG test and 2 out of the 3 bands on the IgM part of the test. However, because some bands on the Western blot are more significant than others.
Lyme symptoms usually start after a bite from an infection tic. The initial symptoms may be flu like with a slight or high fever that lasts 1 day thru a few days. Some people see a bulls-eye type rash and others do not. After the flu like symptoms go away that is when the neurological type symptoms begin. These may include extreme fatigue, brain fog, pain, light and noise sensitivity, trouble walking, headache, feeling unbalanced, body pain, nerve pain especially in the feet.
