I am a 25 year old male from Pennsylvania. I developed a large round rash on my thigh along with a very painful spotted rash that covered the palms of my hands in May of 2005. I went to my family doctor and he said it was nothing to worry about. It went away about 2 weeks later. Fast forward about a year and I started developing daily severe chest pain that went straight through to my back. My family doctor told me it was an acid problem. In October 2007 I developed severe pressure and pain in my head and balance problems. I often deal with low body temperature, chills, pain, and alot of numbness and tingling on a daily basis. However, all these symptoms are difficult but my psychiatric symptoms are the worst. In January of 2008 I developed OCD, anxiety, and depression that I have never dealt with before in my life. In March of 2008 I saw an "LLMD" who diagnosed me with Lyme although I tested negative at my local hospital. In June of 2008 I had a fry lab test that said suggestive of bartonella spp. So thats my story, please feel free to comment or suggest anything. I will start new posts for each of my questions. I will have many along the way, I hope someone can help.
