I have appt with LLMD because I am positive for 9 out of 10 (strain or test?) I was told for years chronic lyme doesnt exist. My symptoms got worse over time. Headaches, GI problems, nausea, memory loss, 2 deg. disc in back 1 in neck. constant back pain. developed phobias, especially clostraphobia. joint ache. especially in knees and hands. teeth hurt all time (even after I had all my teeth either checked or capped by dentist. stiff neck and jaw. swollen lymph nodes. Enlarged heart and chronic fatigue. Sweating. Just a general sick feeling. The worst is either the GI prob or heart. my blood pressure was 181/90 yesterday and i can feel my heart hitting bones. All of this came on suddenly in 2005. Now my wife thinks Im going crazy (hypercondriac?). All the PCP doctors what to drain my bank accounts with tests. I want treatment but dont know if I can afford it. Can anyone tell me what to expect? Thanks.
