The Armin-Labs German Lyme tests..who has gone this route?

How many European sufferers in here have gone the route of sending their bloods to Armin-Labs in Germany for the extensive blood work they offer to determine or eliminate that they just may have Lyme and/or co-infections?

Getting your GP to test or getting tested at a hospital is not thorough enough if you’ve been suffering symptoms for quite some time and you’re dealing with hardcore symptoms like seizures etc. They are not Lyme-Literate practitioners. Admin-Labs are constantly researching and are at the top of their field in Lyme testing.

Lyme's is often missed as are many other diseases such as antiphospholipid syndrome when a patient is suffering seizures.

It is far to easy to label someone with FND without ruling other serious ailments out.

Germany is so much more advanced than UK when it comes to this sort of thing. Was it a finger prick test or did you have to have your blood drawn I would like to get my blood tested ?

Thanks for posting it's interesting.

Hi Jillymo...It’s about 7 vials of blood to be sent off. Lyme is absolutely rife all over England and Ireland and people are very unaware and being misdiagnosed constantly.

This is their website..https://www.arminlabs.com/en

If someone is debilitated with symptoms that they’ve been diagnosed as “FND” they should definitely get these tests done to rule it out.

When you get the test kit make the appointment with the nurse or whomever for a Monday morning so you can post it off that morning. Even if that appointment is 4 Monday’s down the line at least you know you’re gona get your blood drawn and it sent off you know.

The rest of it has nothing really to do with them...you only require a professional to withdraw your blood. You get the results posted/emailed back to yourself etc

When you contact them, you give them your list of symptoms you’re dealing with and they assess it and then suggest what they think you should be tested for. They’re really good at going back and forth emailing no matter what you’ve to ask them.

Meant to be going to see The Cure today but I wouldn’t be able for such a big gig so I’ve had to cancel. 🥺 The joys! I’m used to it by now. Same to you x

It is hard to plan anything when you feel so wretched all the time.

I am sure someone will record it and put it on Utube.

Keep your chin up chick. X

Haven’t been on for a few days so missed this post but yes I had my bloods sent to Germany. I’m Australia so it was a big deal trying to sort out the times of getting it done and flown ASAP. I had 7 vials sent ( organised through a private specialist we see) I was tested for borrelia and babesia but came back negative
