Re: Doctor can't figure out what is wrong, thinks it's Lyme disease

Hi, I am a long time sufferer of Lyme Disease. It took me 20 yrs to find out what I was suffering from.

Your symptoms are definitely Lyme Disease and possibly co-infections of Lyme Disease. The best blood test to take are from the Igenex Lab. in California. The standard test, The Western Blot and the Elisa are only 20-30% accurate. Two weeks of treatment with amoxycillin will not cure late Lyme Disease.

I am an advocate for Lyme Disease and just a note: most Infectious Disease Drs. are awful at diagnosing and treating Lyme Disease. you need to find a Lyme Literate Dr. in your area. Check it out on line.

Hope this info helps.
