I also had the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. I also was told 18 years ago that 2 weeks of antibiotics would cure me. I feel for you as most of us on this board do too. I understand about
how this has affected your homelife and work. Please go to a knowlegable LLMD do not waste your time with anyone who is going to guess about
what is wrong with you. I went to 32 different specialists for over 10 years, many of these were my collegues that I have worked with. They failed me due to their ignorance about
lyme disease and co-infections.
I am a psychologists and was told I needed one because there was nothing wrong with me. It turned out that after seeing a LLMD (one who does not take insurance) that I have many co-infections as well as lyme which I have been treating straight for 2 years. Lyme has screwed up my thyroid as well.
Please see one who will treat your symptoms and not only tests. I am so much better now than I was when I dragged my entire left side. I can now work again part time and do most things. Please have hope sweetie you will get better once you are treated. It won't happen quickly and it won't be cheap but it will happen. I would have re-mortaged my home to get well and I almost had to. But you can't put a price on functioning. Blessings
