Hi,

I believe ive had Lyme for 3 yrs now. I finally
got tested a month ago, but came back NEGATIVE.
Hw do I convince Doctor to give me the needed antibiotics? This is INCREDIBLY frustrating.
Im 29/f and until 2yrs ago, i never had a headache
in my life! I found 30 tiny ticks on me, an hour after walking thru tall grass. Pulled them off and no problems till a yr later. Then, the depression and fatigue started.
That was wen the joint pain started too.
In my shoulders. Then, last summer, i developed a rash?(a kinda sunburn-like dry patch on my right cheek..wich only stays away if i put cortazone cream on it).Then last fall, my foot doctor said
the joint on the tops of both my feet are inflamed.
He insisted i did not hv artritis(from looking at an
xray from 6mos earlier). Ive tried Naproxin, Arthrotec and Vioxx, for joints in feet....all with no effect.
cud these anti-inflamatories interefered with my lyme test??(i took them in Jan and Feb..Lyme test in April)
I also hv been taking Glucosamine since Feb 1st.
Hw do i convince doctor to give me the necessary antibiotics!?? thanks...Kara
