I agree with everyone on this post. Get the Igenex test, pursue Lyme aggressively.
Addressing your symptoms "wax and wane" question.
One major realization I had during diagnosis was that i was having my symptoms daily/hourly. They are constant. I live with them. Therefore, its not a migraine, or etc, or something I am dreaming up. My body is infected.
I have many of the same symptoms off and on for 14 years now. Constant and building for the last 2 1/2 after a nice month long round of steroids!
My endo (awesome) recommended him.
I saw him for the first time yesterday. He confirmed my Neuro Lyme clinically and I now wait on a million lab tests. Go back Dec 3 to get results and start treatment.
He is big on diagnosing the other infections that can be present with Lyme- Babesia, Bartonella and Erlichia. His premise is that underlying "simmering" infections cause chronic disease.
