Email firstname.lastname@example.org say u need a lyme doc near u give her your area she will send back some near u. What is so frusterating is that lyme is an endemic but no doctor who isnt a lyme doc believes that nor knows how to look for it. Dont let them give you a simple lyme blood test that shows nothing and some would say you should have a SPECT scan of your head for the function of the blood and things not the physical features like an MRI although some lyme patients have lesions and swelling. I believe i have hypercoagulation from lyme
Which isnt nec shown in MRI.
-Lyme can give you a regular body temp of 96 97 instead of 98.9
-Also a low whit blood count is possible-
-Lyme is hard to test for because it supresses your immune system so current tests look for antibodies of borrelia burgdorferi (the bacteria that is lyme)
If your immune system is low u dont produce many antibodies to show up un the bit of blood they catch from u-they may move out of your blood into tissues
-Lyme hides in so many way from the immune system also so it may not be recognized either bu your immune stem either. It will go inside your bodies cells so many scenarios it is unbelievable.
-Lyme has a gas surrounding it as it swims around it may go into your tissues and as a immune system killer cell goes after it it cannot get to it in the tissue but it is still attacking the gas around it therefor attacking your tissues making it an autoimmune disease.
There are other reasons it is anautoimmune disease but that is a big one.
- You are lucky to be in a powerful state if you have Lyme I am right next to pensylvania but in ohio it takes me a half hour to get to my Lyme
You need a western blot sent to igenex in california if you want to get tested it is the best lab for a western blot.
Lyme is hard to test for so a clinical diagnosis may be the only reliable way at this time,
-Also lyme effects everyone differently, you mayor may not still have it even if your symptoms dont sound like everyone elses
-Lyme can be passed in other ways besides from a tic, biting flies,mosquitos,sexually,blood transfusion because it is hard to test for and isnt screened out, there are other ways, also.
Sometimes a bit is never noticed but the bulleseye rash appears.
-Also you may still get Lyme even if the rash does not appear after a bite.
-You will face oppostion if you talk to a docter who isnt Lyme literate. So it is worth it to be seen by a Lyme Literate MD LLMD if you think u have it. They are the only people whgo really know aht is going on w this.
-also if Lyme is left untreated it can produce, Parkinson's,MS,Alzheimers,And many other diseases with no known cause or origin.
-It can also be passed on from mother to child.
