Lyme Disease. But the enemy is ignorance with many physicians as the tests used to detect can and in many cases be faulty. There is a myth that many people test false positive. The tests show something is wrong but not enough to be lyme disease so its considered a false positive and instead of the physician looking further because the tests show something, many get no treatment or the wrong diagnosis.
I cringe anytime someone is diagnosed with CFS or fibromyalgia or both as that is exactly what I was diagnosed with. These two are symptoms to Lyme Disease, the most obvious infection as there are millions and millions of ticks, some the size of pepper all over the United States, found in all states.
When the truth is told about Lyme Disease, which we are getting so much closer, who will be accountable? I guess that is not my number one problem right now. The best I can do is get the word out to give you a fighting chance. Oh by the way, even with being misdiagnosed for one year, I had a wonderful doctor who put me on major antibiotics. The joint and muscle pain lifted, my blurry vision and loss of vision in one eye came back and even though I had all the symptoms of fibromyalgia, so many of those were lifted once I was treated properly. (I had about 30 odd symptoms and the only thing that truly helped me come of out the horror of it all, was zithromax and suprax, combination for six months.
I wish you the best!!! You are doing a great job being your own advocate!!!
