Re: Can Lyme antibodies resemble Lupus or RA?
I went to two lyme docs..one lab says I have it, the other does not. Both use different labs. Im delaying the anti's for now until I can figure out what is really going on if I can. I have terrible systemic yeast it often gets into my esophagus so I have to be very careful. Many antifungals dont even work on me anymore. This has been lifelong issue.
I also know that my sjogrens is flaring up a storm, prob from my hysterectomy and hormone issues. My neuro is very knowledgeable about lymes, and says prob dont have it and its my autoimmune going nuts-but, I have never felt so sick in my entire life so this is just scary. Im going to a 3rd doctor to get his opinion...the other co-infections are clear, except for the HHV-6 and EBV are very high, but that seems to be the case for most everyone? I did find some articles on the internet that did say Lyme testing can produce false positive with those with autoimmune problems so.....who really knows or who can help? eveytime I go to a different doc, seems I have something else. Just wondered if anyone else had to deal with the lyme & autoimmune issues..thanks Ticker
for your time.
