Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi Cm8,

Sorry to hear about your problems. When I first contacted Lyme, I experienced the same symptoms as you are. I went undiagnosed for 5 years but that's a long story.

The important thing to do is to find a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) where you live and get your blood sent to a Lab located in Palo Alto, California called Igenix. They have their own website.

I would not trust any other lab except Igenix as my blood kept coming back Negative because the local labs where I live did not use 100% pure lyme antigens mixed with my blood.

Hopefully Ticker will be on this site soon and can give you names of doctors in your area.

In my opinion, I don't think the antibiotic you are taking will harm you at all, but it may not be the right antibiotic for you. Everyone responds differently to antibiotics, what works for one does not work for everyone.

As Ticker as stated, no test is 100% accurate and Ticker does recommend the Igenix Lab. They are more expensive compared to local labs but at least you will get more accurate test(s). The sooner you are diagnosed and treated, the better off you will be. I wish I had found this board 9 years ago as I have damage to my ears, my knees, and the list goes on.

Keep us updated and good luck to you!
