Exclamation your chronic fatigue might be lyme disease

I am sure this has been brought up before, but just in case I wanted to make sure that everyone was familiar w/ Lyme Disease, which they call "The Great Mimicker." It causes symptoms similiar to diseases like chronic fatigue, epstein barr, fibro, etc. I thought I had chronic fatigue for the past eight years, and after going from doctor to doctor w/ a laundry list of symptoms similiar to chronic fatigue one doctor was finally smart enough to test me for Lyme Disease and it turns out that is what I have had. It is a huge epidemic that is not discussed or recognized as much as it should be. The problem w/ Lyme is that most doctors don't know much about it (like chronic fatigue) so it is VERY important to see a Lyme Literate doctor. Check out the Lyme Disease forum on healthboards. I hope this might help, I wish I had known a lot sooner.
