    Talking My doctor found a curable (!!) cause of my CF

    I thought they had run every blood test on me ever invented, but apparently not. My new internal medicine doctor ran new tests and found Chronic Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (??) and a bad strain of Babesia (???) in my blood, which he believes are the source of my Chronic Fatigue, all of which have a cure!!! Apparently it takes a group of tests together to identify them because one simple blood test hasn’t been discovered yet, which is why they are often missed by people who don’t specialize in them.

    I wish everyone out there could feel what it is like after 10 years of slowly getting worse…and worse…and worse, to FINALLY start feeling better. And to have something concrete to fight against. If anybody is interested he wrote a book (Why Can’t I Feel Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Disease, by Richard Horowitz, MD), and I think he was on Katie Couric not too long ago, so you might catch him doing the talk show rounds.

    Hi, Sydney!
    So glad you finally found an answer for all your symptoms! Are you being treated by a LLMD yet? I, as well, have found out that I have Lyme-Late Stage, or Chronic. You said that you are starting to feel better...is it due to finally having a diagnosis, or because of being treated for Lyme?
    I wish you ALLL the best!
    Hugs,
    Dee.

    OH my gosh. Please do explain what you are doing/taking to feel better. I can't believe this; I'm so very excited for you and anxious for your reply!!!
