Re: LLMD in New York City?
i got a call from the dermatologist, and she said the Quest W. Bolt test that i took yesterday was negative. i haven't seen the results to know what it actually looked like, but it seems from this board that it isn't a simple "positive/negative" response. the test results had the wrong name on them (apparently my sister was already in the computer at the lab so they assumed i was her) which also sort of bothers me.
i'm not trying to wish myself into a diagnosis here, but at the same time i want to make sure i'm getting the absolute correct information. i was bitten by something on my scalp earlier in the summer. a couple days later i found a tick in my sheets (no idea how... could it be the same one?). now 4 months later i am having some terrible symptoms. i didn't even think of lyme disease until someone suggested i check it out (started out looking into staph b/c that's what my dr. diagnosed my rash as at first), but the symptoms seem pretty close on to what i'm experiencing. 7 days of clarithromycin hasn't helped, and i'd like to tackle whatever is making me feel this way.
