If you are serious about getting to the root of your problem, I'd advise doing some reading about Lyme, and consulting a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor who would most likely order a Western Blot through Igenex Labs (to my knowledge is about the only lab that specializes in testing for lyme and coinfections). I don't know what their fees are but someone on the boards mentioned $350...but I don't know what this included.
For a number of reasons, it is very difficult to diagnose Lyme...and what complicates matters even more is the fact that most doctors don't think of "looking" for it even though it is an epidemic in some parts of our country and in some parts of the world. Although Lyme is rampant in the NE states and in some parts of the Midwest, it has been found in every state in the United States.
PS There are some women with symptoms similar to yours who post on this board...it may be the hormonal fluctuations of menopause may make the symptoms worse, but again, these are not symptoms of menopause.
