I was diagnosed with cancer 13 years ago and underwent chemotherapy which had to be stopped as a result of multiple infections and hospitalizations. Since that time, I've developed diabetes, neuropathy, fibromyalgia, arthritis, optic neuritis, night sweats, depression, fevers, chills...and the list goes on. I feel as though I have a horrible case of the flu most of the time and my joints ache. I take over a dozen different medications to manage these illnesses. The pain is so bad that I have added percocets 4-5 times every day so I can function through the pain. Last week I went for some blood work and my CD57 panel came back with a level of 48. I've heard this could indicate Lyme disease. Does anyone know if this particular test result, along with my physical complaints, could affirm a lyme disease diagnosis?

I don't know if this would "confirm" lyme, but the only thing known to affect the CD57 results is Lyme. Please find a LLMD ASAP and check into this. If you need a doctor referral do another post someone will be able to help you. Good Luck!

hey book,
I got into alot of trouble about this very topic..lol. But see if you can look for the post lyme and cancer. can't remember when, maybe oct or nov.
It will answer you questions.
I think that what you need to do is work on your immune system. Everything that you listed is a immune disease. And once your system is knocked down with cancer and chemo, the rest fall like dominos.
It can get straighten out. The clinic that I was at deals with 50% cancer people with the same problem as you. And yes, most of them tested positive for lyme.
But you need to build up your immune sytem so that your body can take care of itself.
Also hearing great things about Dr. J's work. And he is less $ that my clinic.
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.

Oh...percosets do not work well for pain. And are so darn addictive that soon you will have to take twice as many to get any relief, then you will have a drug problem as well.
I took cymbalta and man...if it is good enough for diabetics that are losing their legs, it will work for you too...hopefully.
I take 60 mg a day. It is also good for your blues and for cronic fatique. Take it in the AM
Or start with the 30 to see how you can handle it at first.
You will be very happy soon.
