Hi Everyone. I'm brand new on the board and I was hoping I can get some input from some of you who may have experienced the same symptoms that I have. I have been suffering from pain in my joints and muscles for several years now (about
10 years). I am 23 years old now. I have had the lyme tests done through igenex. I don't have the details of the test in front of me right now, but they basically came back undetermined. You probably know the details better than I do but the way i remember it being explained is that there are 3 main #'s (protiens?) that can indicate lyme disease, but there are at least 2 others that could also indicate lyme they're just not "official". It sounds like i had maybe one of the main 3 #'s and and one or more of the "possibly" indicators. Again, i don't have the details in front of me and it's probably been almost a year since that test. They put me on large doses of antibiotics (including doxy and some other one)... i think it was about
3 months but i couldn't really determine myself if i got worse or better. it's hard for me to tell since i don't remember what "normal" or "better" feels like. I just know that i got stomach aches and a few yeast infections (ick!) and i swear my digestive system hasn't been the same since.
Since I haven't had a positive lyme test and they've ruled out a lot of other things (like lupus, arthritis, blah blah blah) I've been convinced i have fibromyalgia or something like that, but of course there are no definite tests for that. Lately i've been questioning whether it could be lyme again,
and i was thinking really hard about
that possible bullseye rash that I had. Let me know what you guys think!!!
