: Alice have you been evaluated by a doctor who is knowledgeable about Lyme Disease?
ALICE, When my husband was diagnosed 2yrs ago, He first went paralized on one side of his face. He was told it was palsy and to go home. With-in days, his feet then one side of his torso went. He was finally sent to the hospital. A typical blood test was taken and showed nothing. The nurologist was smart enough to find another opinion and was told that in the extream cases of lymes it wont show on the blood test because the bacteria had already settled in his nurves. The Doctor took a spinal and found it to be off the scale. He developed lymes meningitis. Nearly died. I can tell you that three test were taken. It took 3 days to get the results from his spinal that was sent to a lab in calf. We live in NH. Its been 2 yrs. He will never get 1/2 of one of his lungs back. I attribute this to the ignorance and laziness of our primary here in the lakes region.
Ple4ase try an infectious des. doc or a nurologist. Remember, it did not show up on the reg. blood test, because of advace stages.
