Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi Jane, welcome to the board! Yes this is a nightmare, but it is always helpful to correspond with others who are going through the same things.

How long were you sick before getting diagnosed? Where do you live? Are you seeing a Lyme doctor? Besides Lyme, ticks can transmit Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. It is very important to be tested for these because many people who have Lyme are co-infected. Many Lyme doctors believe the co-infections need to be treated first for Lyme treatment to be effective.

Some of the main symptoms of Babesiosis are heart palpitations, night sweats, muscle pain, severe headaches, chills, dizziness and sometimes fever. You may have some or all symptoms.

I don't know if you are aware but there is a wonderful cover you can buy for your PICC line so you can take a shower without getting the site wet. It is called a PICC line cover and you can buy it on-line at Brown Medical Supply. It is great.
