Hey jasflower, I'll post my current list below, though I'm sure I've missed some.
AndreM, thanks for the thoughts, I definitely don't want to take antibiotics lightly. There's been days where I quite literally feel like I'm knocking on deaths door, and that's what's pushed me to keep looking. It sounds like you don't necessarily believe in the lyme diagnosis, and that's alright, if I may ask, is there any helpful info you'd like to pass along in regard to other testing which may be useful from your experiences? I've read your last post and I undestand your points, but know that we each have to find a treatment that works best for us as individuals. But regardless, I am thankful for outside input.
