Any one have CFS - then a tick bite with Lyme made everything worse? 
 I suspect my daughter has Lyme (being tested now), but now I see that she has had many CFS symptoms for 4-5 years, but was able to cope with plenty of rest.  Now she is very fatigued!  I wonder if she may have had something else going on before the tick bite and that is why she has so many symptoms now.  If it's not lyme, I think it must be CFS!

Hi Momma K. I hope your daughter's doctor is able to sort things out. It is possible that she has both Lymes and CFS. I have learned from people on the Lymes forum that some of the tests can be negative and a person can still have Lymes. Let us know how the testing goes and please feel free to ask any questions you have about CFS.

Diagnosis:  Suspected Lupus 2004; Raynauds 2006; Sjogren's 2006; CFS 1991; Mono 1985

Meds:  Plaquenil 400mg; Tramadol 100mg 3-4x daily; Amitriptyline 10mg; Neurontin 200mg; Steriod Cream and Mouth Rinse for tongue and mouth ulcers; Hydrocodone 5/500 prn for severe pain
