Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi tcabe1965. I highly recommend that you get copies of all your test results, Lyme and other. I suggest asking your doctor to do a Western Blot test and co-infection tests at IgeneX Lab in Palo Alto, CA.

From what I understand, people who have Lyme should not take steroids for any length of time because it can make symptoms much worse. You may want to discuss this with your doctor. I believe that steroids have to be decreased slowly, not all at once.

I also suggest that you get copies of your thyroid results. Many people who have Lyme have a thyroid disorder. The symptoms of both can overlap. Even if your results are in the normal range, they may not be optimal for you especially if you are having symptoms. If you have not had the Free T3, Free T4 (besides the T3 and T4) and thyroid antibody testing done, you should. These tests are not normally run but are necessary for a comprehensive view. Post your results here or on the thyroid board at this site if you need help interpreting them.

Is the neuro doing the spinal test to test for Lyme or for other things?
