not sure if I offended some or all of you when I last wrote, as no one replied or offered me their thoughts. It certainly was not my intention to offend or alienate anyone. I was and still am anxious to see if I can be diagnosed and treated to improve my quality of life. My questions were centered around only having IgM positive tests, but many of the symptoms of Lymes, and not knowing whether "chronic Lymes" really existed.(after much reading Yes, IMHO it does.) Ultimately I went to a infectious disease specialist, who told me that not only do I not have Lymes, I probably have never had it. OK..
well a chance walk by a television showed a lupus rash on some one's hand. The point of the report is that UV light can aggravate certain rashes in certain diseases. the rash looked identical to mine. Did a core skin biopsy, it confirmed I have Lupus. So if this helps any of you.. good and good luck to you all anyway. the only other notable thing that I can think of now is that i have had Raynaud's syndrome for quite a while, I have way below normal white cell counts, and an older spinal MRI(2 years ago) showed abnormal bone marrow.
