I'm a little confused.
I once did an Elisa Test for Borreliosis where IgM and IgG were measured.
And now I read about toxoplasmosis and it stated that the toxoplasmosis test looks for IgG/M/A.
Does this mean that if a person has elevated IgM or IgG then this isn't specific but it could either point
towards Borreliosis or Toxoplasmosis or something else? Am I understanding this correctly?
But then how do you even find out what exactly a person is infected with?

What also worries me is that in my last Elisa done by a rhematologist for Borreliosis one of the IGs either it was M or G
was "borderline" according to the labratory. My doctor didn't even comment on this. He said that since the Western Blot
was negative it means that I don't have Borreliosis. But even if this is correct then maybe the borderline IG means that I have
something other than Borreliosis?
