Thank you palady. this is such a controversial disease that all of these instances are contradicted by politics of this disease. I will have to figure it out.
I took what is called a western blot test for lyme it is the most sensitive it shows different parts of your immune system reacting to lyme the cdc states u must have a certain number of reactive parts to be positive, when in fact one reative part is significant, and the longer you have had the disease and the sicker you are the lesssssss likely your immune system is detecting it properly it is very smart it hides in so many ways u prob dont have time to hear.
So i have lyme specific reactions but not enough for the cdc to state positive.
Although my daughter who is young, 23 months had a positive test contracting congenitally, because she hasnt had it long and she is not sick her immune system is in control for the moment and producing antibodies to show up on the test.
see the test only looks for antibodies not the bacterias.
Any way chronic lyme is controversial and dangerous for the lyme doctors, so they dont like to be referenced, for fear of loosing their licences, which has happened for treating w longterm antibiotics upon a clinical diagnosis because the persons had lyme but their tests were negative and the doctor was generous enough to know it was lyme and still treat the disease which goes into a cyst form which in unpenitrable with antibiotics therefore longterm abx as well as different types to kill cyst form must be done.
It is in legislation right now, the guidelines will be changed by the begining of the new year.
but this is the state we are in !!!!!
So as patients protecting our doctors we dont really reference them without a positive test.
So i havent had enough parts to be positive u must keep testing just to get that evidence.
200 dollars a test.
So basically i am just going to bring the tests, or i dont know what to do.
All i know is i am dieing each day. And the lyme doc i see is in the next state because my state is bad they dont believe lyme exists in my state ohio . It is a joke it is very sad!!!!!!
Sooooooooooooo many people have lyme and dont know it!!!!!!!!
all the diseases of unknown origin must be considered for lyme....
Fibro, MS, ALS, alzheimers, parkinsons. How about that it is good to know for a person you may love dieing from one of these diseases,
Tooo have a potential cure of antibiotics or other protocol for lyme and other parisites like the salt/vitamin C protocol.
thanks again palady Veronica
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.
