Re: lyme newbie

yeah i have heard that the affects of the treatment can take awhile before you'll begin to feel better. i hope you begin to do so soon though and that youll be on your way to a fast recovery from this nasty disease. i have'nt found a lyme Dr yet, i tried going to that site you posted but it seemed to have been just a information news blog or site. im still looking and searching for a doctor in the fresno CA area. i did contact IgenX though and they are sending me the test kit and told me soon as i can find a lyme dr i just need to get them to authorize the test and begin the investigation for it. what were your symptoms and days like? was wondering did it ever come and go as well?

wishing and praying for you that you will get well from it soon!
