    janet, first of all, welcome to the board!
    your attitude (in print at least) is inspriring... I hear a fighter in there somewhere... so trust your instincts and if the diagnoses are subjective, keep, digging... there is no sense in throwing in the towel on life.
    and being a guinea pig or better yet, puppet, for someone to wrongly medicate, poke, prod and charge out the whazoo! Right? Right!
    Blessings, cj

    Re: Voice or speech problems with lyme sufferers?


    My name is Lance and I was diagnosed with MS about a year and a half ago. Here is my question. Not knowing that there were many other diseases that needed to be checked out I was satisfied (although not happy) with my initial dx of MS from my MRI (11 spots) and my then symptoms (double vision). Well my neuro put me on steroids and I would feel better for a day or so and see some improvement, and then in about a week I would develop another symptom completely. This happened about six times. First I developed a walking problem, where it looked like I was drunk, then my speech sounded like I had drank about 7 bottles of jack, then I started having wierd spells with some mild spasticity, then I had wierd bladder issues. When I stopped the Solu Medrol and the Prednisone pills, things started to get better on their own, so I didn't take any more steroids. I didn't think anything of it until I ran across someones **** on being misdiagnosed with MS and actually having lymes disease. I am not sure that I do have Lymes, I don't recal ever been bitten by tic's or a rash that looked bullseyeish. I did live in an area for 12 years growing up where deer ticks were everywhere, and although I find it unlikely I do know it is possible I was bitten and didn't even realize when I was a kid. When I got into highschool I started getting Excema style rashes on my face every now and then, and started feeling like my heart would flutter in my chest. Does this sound like Lymes? If I do have Lymes the symptoms have been with me for a long long time, and I don't know that Lyme could be that mild for so long. I am 29 now, so we are talking about probably 15 years ago when I remember things like feeling my heart, and the excema thing starting. I would love some feedback on this one. I am going to go to a Lyme specialist (if I can find one in my area) and get tested. Something just feels more right about this than MS to me.

Please help with your specific input. Thanks in advance!
    Hi remic
    I also have the hoarness in my voice It started with a sore throat that lasted for 8 months with alot of thrush from the lyme after four months on fluconazole for yeast Rocephin for the lyme and many supplements it is much better If you have white on your tongue or cheeks and back of your throat I would look into it It could be from your immune system being low and meds
    Mine is a little hoarse this week I returned to work after almost four months and I am in sales so I have been using my voice alot I try to not talk so much when I am not working to give it a rest I soom times cannot get words out that used to come freely I have been sore but glad to be able to return to somewhat of a normal life Did you have the test by Igenexs for lyme or the Elisa good luck and hope you are feeling better soon

    HI Lance and Welcome to the board!

    Yes it could be Lyme...I get those darn rashes on my face too.

    Lyme is every where...Orange County too!

    Might do you good to post a new Thread and see where there is a LLMD close to you...

    I don't remember correctly but I think Dr. Harris has a pratice closest to might have to make a trip..but would be well worth it! Try looking on the top of this board for Lyme doctors and clinics...I know he also has an Office in Nevada City...

    I hope you find some relief soon....your best bet is getting to a Lyme doc...

    Good Luck to you!
