Default re: bitten by a tick, started to have slurred speech

al...you spoke of 2 tests. are you referring to IGENEX & BOWEN?

after all of the reading i have been doing for over a year now...it seems that these are the only accurate lymes testing laboratories in the US.

i phoned both laboratories who gave me names of physicians in our area that use their kits. from what i understand, most physicians cannot use them as they work for a hospital that has their own laboratory.

such is my aunts case...she was tested at a hospital that has their own laboratory. these hospital laboratories are not "tick infectious disease" laboratories.

i guess its like taking you child to a family practitioner instead of a pediatrician?

i sure hope that everyone who is diagnosed with als, parkinsons, ms, & any other related disease contact these 2 laboratories for a lymes test...

maybe then we can get further in our findings & do something to beat this good luck everyone & keep praying - much love, denise
