Is this common? Do you find yourself saying everything that is wrong (every symptom) with you has to do with Lyme?

I would say it definately has to do with Lyme. I am a thin, non-meat eater and eat all organic foods. I dont drink or smoke and I exercise and my cholesteral is 239. Go figure...

It has a lot to do with genetics, not just lifestyle etc. I've asked my docs about this and they all say genes play an important role in cholesterol numbers.

They told me that I now had high colesteral. That was a first to me.
I am sure that is has to do with the lyme and the liver. But I have taken eggs out of my diet and salt, and now that I am feeling better getting back to the gym.
But that may have to wait some because I still have 4 more weeks of treatment and I don't feel so hot during that.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.
