Hi Chantel2003 and welcome.

I also had strange symptoms and bounced from doctor to doctor - only to be told that there was nothing wrong with me, even though I was getting sicker and sicker.

My hair fell out, my short term memory got bad, I lost my sense of balance, my face felt numb, I had a strange itchy rash (but not the bulls-eye), I could barely keep my eyes open after sleeping for 12 hours, I gained tons of weight (and I didn't change my eating habits) -- all scary stuff!

To have the doctors tell me that nothing was wrong was very very frustrating!

Ticker is right - don't give up. And that's a great book that was recommended.

An LLMD is a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor. They are life savers. :)

I happen to meet someone who had similiar symptoms to mine and they recommended the doctor to me. After seeing me, the LLMD started treatment without a positive blood test (my blood was tested later at Igenex and came back positive).

It turns out I also have a co-infection called Baetonella. If you do get tested, get tested for the co-infections also.

This is a great place to get comfort, understanding and answers to your questions.

Hang in there, Ok? Peace and health to you.
