I am usually on the Lyme forum but recently have been wondering about
my diagnosis. I will try and make this short..
I became sick in October 2004 with high temp 103 and flu symptoms which only lasted 24 hours. A week later I had the exact same thing only I also woke up with joint pain and stiffness in my hands and fingers. Three weeks later I was hit with severe fatigue which is constant to this day. The joint pain lasted for 10 straight months and then just disappeared. I have had so many symptoms it would be a long list but the major ones I still have are chronic fatigue, dry-burning eyes-muscle twitching L calf only-constant red rash on my neck only.
When I first became sick I had very elevated liver enzymes and a high c reactive protein level with low WBC. I have had constant Low WBC since Nov 2004. I have been on abx for almost two years and am still sick. I even travel out of state to a Lyme doctor in NY but still am suffering daily. The fatigue is constant but varies from day to day. I believe I only had the ANA done back then which was negative. Does this sound as though it could be lupus?
I don't know where to turn to from here because although I live in a Lyme endemic area I am just not getting better. Thanks..
