Thank you, Tickedoff! We do tell people to be checked out for all the other illnesses, including Lyme, that fibro mimics. Doctors should really do this automatically because fibro can mimic Lyme, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, among others.
Check out our Fibro 101 thread...the first thread on the forum. There is a link there to What Else Could It Be. It is amazing how all these symptoms are so similar. But, it is a good reminder to be checked out for Lyme....preferably by Igenex Lab in Palo Alto, California. Your blood work can be sent there, I believe.
