I am a regular on the Lyme Board too but I have extreme chronic pain as a result of it. I was reading your symptoms and they are eerily familiar. Have you checked into Lyme Disease? I have been in major pain and have been in so many circles with Drs. for about
20 yrs. The last 6 1/2 have been the worst. I also see an endo because the Lyme has wreaked havoc on my entire system. Addison's Disease was just added to my list but my Lyme Dr says all of these issue should resolve upon successful treatment. Most mainstream Drs. know little about
Lyme and the testing through most major labs is very unreliable. I had to send my blood to a lab in CA called Igenex.
I was so relieved to finally get a diagnosis. I thought I was dying of cancer or some other terminal illness.
I have been on oral abx for 2 months and start IV next week. I have already seem imporvement, although slow, but at least I know the cause of my chronic pain.
I hope this helps! Best of luck to you,
