hey everyone! I know a lot of people on this board don't know much about Lyme, but I have been having incontinence and scary kidney symptoms since February!

I was tested late February, every test was perfect (blood work up and 2 urinalysis).

Now it's getting worse. Legs are fatigued. Extreme thirst and excessive urination. Feet numb. Frequent night urination and incontinence sometimes.

I know I need to get tested, so I went to doc yesterday. He did a dipstick urinalysis, found WBC-- infection. Nothing else. No protein, anything.

Can I trust this or do I need further testing?

I am so worried and only 22, so someone please tell me I'm okay.

I'm not sure of the symptom of Lyme. However, if you're uncertain about kidney disease, you should ask your primary doctor for a referral to a urologist.
