[QUOTE=Pearlscale;2854585]Ryebeach and all my other lymie friends.
Thanks for the encouragement.

I can't take pain meds. Doesn't matter what I try it will send my chest into spasms and I mean horrible spasms that lasts for hours. Over the years I have tried many, each one did this. I wish I could take them. Tylenol and advil is all I can take. The baclofen I am on now seems to help some. It is for seizures.

I tried the IV rounds last year. Due to blood clots, I had to stop the IV and go to orals. My problem is that I can't take much without it affecting my liver. Have to stop and start never quite getting enough in to do the job. Not able to take more than 2 or 3 treatments a week. This last time, had to stop due to high liver functions.

I was diagnosed last week by the neuro with demylinating disease of cns from lyme disease.

Found out yesterday that the neurologist did some kind of blood test that checks the muscle damage. Results should have been in the hundreds but mine were in the three hundreds. Also I had a positive ANA test. Every red blood cell test they did was to high. The nurse said the neuro wanted to see me asap. She was going to call and get my MRI set up (insurance has been the hold-up) and call me back.

I go back to the lyme dr end of this month after they have gotten all these other tests done.

I'm trying to stay positive, but this is tough.



I am not going through half the things you are going through but I do want you to know this. I too had an abnormal ANA test last year. That scared me to death. My liver enzymes were slightly high too. They thought I had an auto immune disorder. I've done two ANA tests since then, one just a few weeks ago and they were negative. Sometimes medications can cause you ANA to be positive/abnormal and sometimes healthy people have abnormal/positive ANA tests. I'm just trying to give you a little hope hun. Hang in there:)
