Going to see Dr. S tomorrow in howell, NJ. supposedly has a very good rep.
Its weird..i was feeling a bit better last week for about 6 days..and then as of yesterday i feel like death again with joint pain, major fatigue, chills, anxiety, brain fog. Ugh..wonder if this is the infamous lymes cycle?
Anyway, seeing as i am having some nasty brain fog im not as sharp as i usaully am. What would some good questions be to ask the lyme doctor? I know hes going to use the igen testing lab to confirm i have lyme, etc.
I am planning on bringing my medical history with me, as well as the patterns of illness that ive noticed since june of last year when i started getting sick.
Ugh, I am truly hoping that the root cause of all my miserty for this past year is lyme, and i'd be downright pretty pissed off and discouraged if he comes back and says its not and its something else! Then I'll have no idea what the heck is going on and back to square one :(
