Re: Spinal tap to diagnose lyme disease
Any doc that claims they are a LLMD and recommends a spinal tap to detect lyme. You had better RUN the other way. That is the worse thing to do for those of us with lyme.
Before I knew better I had one done. and was laid up for a very long time with a worse headache!
Search out someone else to go to. Any doctor that signs off lab slips from Igenex will do. But seeing a "true" LLMD they will go on symptoms. Testing for lyme is inaccurate. No matter what lab. Igenex is suppose to be the best. But even then can have negative results.
Spend the money and see a doc that deals with lyme and co-infections. It could save your life, and health.
