Re: Help...Husband and myself are Falling Apart
I would consider being re-tested for Lyme. The tests are known for being false negatives, or even sometimes not showing at all for a period of time. The lab to have your blood tested by is not the standard labs all the Docs use. Hop over to the Lyme board and see.
I too was told Fibro, maybe starting RA etc. Have a high SED Rate etc. Finally after a year of pain, I got tested by the proper lab and lo and behold very positive for Lyme and one other co-infection.
No, I do not remember a tick bite nor did I have the bullseye (at least in any place I could see!)
Some Dr.'s feel Lyme can be passed to your partner, others do not. There is no clear answer there. They do know it can be passed in birth, and other diseases can be passed thru body fluids, so why can't Lyme? Like I said, jury is still out on that one. My husband and I practice safe sex (Lord thought I would not have to do that with my hubby at this point in my life) just to be on the safe side!
It might be worth a shot. You have only your health to gain, nothing to loose.
