Dorri just in case you don't read my post on the Lyme disease message board I am just going to list my symptoms that lead me through the diagnosis of depression-post-partom depression, Chronic fatigue syndrom then finally Lyme. Just incase anyone has in common.
-Pain in anckles, on and off
-flu like feeling
-I felt like I was in a nother persons body
-OH BIG ONE....When you apply a little pressur like holding my arm or getting up from a chair the meaty parts of my body hurt like arms, thighs any meaty flesh
all these symptoms came and went except the fatigue
Thanks for your reply. Something to consider, when all else comes up negative. Fibro also causes many of the same symptoms you mention. Since fibromyalgia doesn't have any identifiable cause, maybe they should test us all with the blot lyme blood test you mention.
You can get tested for it find a doctor that understands the contoversy of lyme and ask him to call and order it. I go to a doctor In Westport Connecticut, soon to go to cheaper one though. I am glad to even be able to help you somewhat thats great! I hope to keep in contact with you and find out everything every detail!!!!! best of luck
