    Dylan- Just curious, did you go to the LLMD and when you started on the
    Doxy, did you have any reaction? Your symptoms still sound like you need that LLMD lala is talking about. The LLMD in Texas is $550.00 so I feel your pain, but they are (in Texas anyway) very hard to find and very reasonable rate to get my health back. We are pulling for you, so let us know about your progress! And, if your symptoms to the LLMD sound like Lyme, just know its a journey and not a fast fix it quick disease. But thats what we do, we fight until we are better and I hope you are on the road to recovery. Sounds like you are doing all the right things! God Bless.

    Hi Dylan,

    I felt compelled to register and reply to your post upon reading your symptoms and the recent post date. It's been a difficult journey for myself and my 24yr old daughter who has suffered terribly for the past six months with many, if not all of the symptoms you've described (aside from the concert incident). She lived a healthy lifestyle, lived independently, and worked full-time in a successful position and had to move home last fall because of debilitating symptoms. Just yesterday, she received a positive test for Lyme's disease and will now start treatment. This follows many months of emergency room visits for some very frightening symptoms with either misdiagnosis or no diagnosis. Her medical professional contacts grew to include numerous professionals, many for second opinions (neurologists, cardiologists, naturopath, ear/nose/throat, occupational therapists, etc.) beyond our family doctor as we kept pressing for help.

    It's my understanding that Lyme disease testing may show negative results if at the time of testing, the body has not developed antibodies against the disease. It's also my understanding that another condition i.e. head injury/concussion symptoms, may lower the body's resistance to the (any) illness. With your head injury, teasing apart the symptoms may be more complicated, but as you say, your symptom history predated the facial/head injury. My daughter was/is describing the symptoms you report and was asked repeatedly if she suffered a head injury, which she hadn't. The Igenix lab completed the tests.

    Please share this post with your parents as you see fit in support of seeking further testing for you.

    Take care.
