alfers - I had anemia on my second round of Lyme disease testing.... the horrible infectious disease doctor I saw (she's the one who yelled at me and told me there were "no ticks" in Florida and therefore "NO LYME DISEASE") even said, "I would be more concerned about
the anemia and the blood found in your synovial fluid (from my knee aspiration) than any Lyme disease." And then she proceeded to never respond to my 23 follow-up phone calls. I have never heard from her since. Additional blood test performed by a LLDr. approximately 3 months later showed that the anemia had resolved.
I think I was probably "chronic" when these tests were finally done. Hope this helps.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Meade
