Ask him to test you for viruses. When your immune system is supressed from Lyme Disease, you can sometimes pick up viruses that make you feel just as bad as Lyme does. Certain ones that Ive had, make you feel like you have the flu and they "act" just like Mono.
I had 4 viruses. I had Cytomegalovirus, Epstein Barr(many of us get this), HHV6(which is a type of herpes, but Its viral), and I also had herpes simplex 1 which is the normal fever blister.
If you have any of these viruses, you will probably be able to move forward with being diagnosed with Lyme.
Also, ask you doctor to do an NK Stricker CD57 Panel. This will tell you how low your immune system is.
