My lymes disease story.

I was diagnosed with Lymes Disease in October of 2008 when I was 12 years old. I was bit by a tick in May 2008. While at the ocean in August 2008 I had a rough night of flu-like symptoms. The next morning I was perfectly fine and we headed home.

I didn't start seeing anymore symptoms until September 2008. Until I started having symptoms like Nausea (big one), no stamina, lazyness, fatigue, and OCD type symptoms. I tried doing everything, stomach x-rays, blood tests. Then me & my parents though, it might be lymes disease. We immediatly scheduled an appointment with a Lymes specialist in the area and he diagnosed me with lymes disease. I couldn't believe it; I wanted to cry. In January of 2009 I had strep throat. This led to a disease called P.A.N.D.A.S. I didn't know what this was and I didn't really care. In around February of 2009 we started seeing a P.A.N.D.A.S doctor. She put me on steroids to stop the bad cells being sent to my head. I started feeling better and at that point we knew it was P.A.N.D.A.S. In July of 2009 I went to the hospital and had an IVIG done. Immediatly after the precedure I felt better. During my 8th grade year I'd need some time to rest, and stay out of school, but now as of July 2010, I barely feel bad anymore. I thank god and all my doctors for helping me feel better. I am now 14 years old and heading into my freshman year.

Re: My lymes disease story.

Thanks for sharing your message, Tyler. I'm new to this Lyme world and just trying to get answers. Every story I read brings me that much closer to figuring out how to deal with this illness and see that others have learned how to cope and find treatment. Anyway, good luck with everything!
