It is newbie again. Just received lab results in writing from my ID doc and wondered if anyone can interpret since my current ID doesn't think you can have Lyme disease in the area in which I live. He thinks I have parvo and have had this off and on since June '08, while my rheumatologist thinks it is more likely Lyme. All labs done through Spectrum lab including Lyme disease Ab, Western Blot, CBC with Diff, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Epstein-Barr Virus Antibody Panel I, HIV Reflex, Human Parvovirus DNA, PCR and CMV antigenemia assay with the only abnormal values listed below. I have a follow up appointment with the ID docs partner soon and I am hoping he doesn't have the same opinion. I have been posting and getting several replies already from you all regarding LLMD and I am looking into seeing a LLMD now. My symptoms include problems with memory, headaches, tooth and jaw pain, burning eyes, dry lips, chest pain, joint pain (including wrists, hands, fingers, elbows, shoulders, hips, knees (terrible in knees), ankles, feet (including balls of feet, toes), swelling in fingers, wrists, knees, ankles and toes, low grade fevers 99.5 - 100.8 (was 103 at onset), sore throats, severe fatigue, low back pain, nausea with flares approximately every two months lasting 8-12 days. This is such a frustrating thing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am finding that getting advice from "someone who has been there" through this website has been the greatest help of anything thus far including MDs up to this point.
