My almost 15 yr old daughter has been seen by several doctors in the last yr for an illness that they cannot
diagnosis for. She has had evey test for auto-immune disorders to MRI's, EEG's and a Spinal tap that resulted
in nothing abnormal.
I know that she has Lyme Disease but the test tell otherwise, they want me to try her on Zoloft and Neurotin
even though she is not depressed or has never had a seizure. The last doctor says to treat the brain then deal
with her pain later.
I may take her to a Doctor in Branson Missouri that treats Lyme or even the Mayo Clinic to find the right doctor
who will treat her.
She was treated for Lyme about 8 yrs ago but had the disease a yr and half before being tested for Lyme. And
Then not treated long enough. (i know that know)
Her regular doctor tells me there is nothing more medical she can do for her.
We are at our wits about what to do. I need and she needs help with this. Are there any new test for Lyme that
could shed some light on us.
Also we cannot find anything on late stages that brighten our days.
I'm sorry for getting carried away but we need help and can't find it close to home.
Thank you for any help that anyone can provide.
