It's sad that your doctor won't even entertain the idea it could be lymes. If you go to the website www.cpnhelp.org and key in arthritis in the search field you will see that there is a doctor treating people who have arthritis with antibiotics. He is having remarkable results!
I'm having trouble in my state finding a doctor who will treat me with IV antibiotics which I need because of the advanced state of lyme disease I have. So I a going to move to a nearby state to get the treatment. It is not legal in every state to treat with long term IV antibiotics so I am going to have to move. I will do whatever I need to do to get well.
