Hi all,
I have a few different problems. I have Chron's (had a bowel resection), a history of Atrial fibrillation that I'm on maintenance meds for, Arthritis, and now I have just been diagnosed with Lyme Disease which I have been tested for many times over the years an came back negative. My question is can it be possible to be tested for Lyme and sometimes be neg and others positive? Another words does the infection go into a type of remission were it can't be detected and then show it self weeks months or years later?
If anyone knows anything about this or has had an experience like this could you please let me know, because it may answer a lot of questions and problems I have had for a very long time.

Thanks to all and stay well

We have a Lyme Disease forum hear on Healingwell. You might want to pop over there and ask them this question. Good luck!

P.S. I saw one of those "mystery diagnosis" shows on Discovery health where the girl had Lyme but the initial test came back negative. Good luck to you!!!!
