Nice to hear from you. Yes, been to an endo, tested for Lupus, Thyroid, and Lyme, and many more. They all say I'm normal. My FSH for peri is normal also. I just don't know what is going on in my body. I get frustrated some times.
Thanks again, Jen
Yes I have taken antibiotics, both times that I had my brain MRIs done, Spring of 06, and 07, nothing showed as far as lesions but for sinus thickening. There was no difference in my symptoms, as far as "herxing." I took 3000 mg of amoxicillin, for 14 days both times. I have been tested for Lyme, actually twice through the ELISA, which I heard is useless. Can docs order a Western Blot Lyme test? Or is this only through IGENEX? Thanks!!
the elisa is useless-- and you can ask for a western blot-- i paid for the igenex test myself 190-- insurance doesn't cover it-- they don't even take insurance but it came back with very significant postive bands of lyme and some ind's not negative not psotive so overall it was negative but i am seeing an llmd to make sure-- if you have any infection viral or bacteria-- if it is imbedded for so long you really won't test postive -- i know this for a fact on soemthing alse but i don't want to say what-- too embarassing
it won't hurt to really cover the bases on lyme-- lyme treatment won't hurt ms but some ms treatments will deteriorate you if you have chronic or neuro lyme-- so check it out-- i currently have ms with possible lyme
keep me posted
Yes, had spinal MRI and 2 brain MRI. I do have a bulging disk at C-3, no cord impingement. Do you have the same symptoms also?
