When I started having knee issues in 2002, I had a test done for Lyme Disease which came back positive. Still had issues with the knee and had surgery. Other than the blood test, I had no rash or any other symptoms that would have made me think of Lyme. Since then, I've been on several courses of doxy (which makes me extremely sick) and done several different herbal treatments, under the guidance of a naturopath. Still have Lyme showing up on blood tests, though, and I don't feel 'sick'. To top it all off, I'm also allergic to many antibiotics.
Have tested negative to ehrlichia, babesia, Epstein Barr, West Nile & cytomeglia.
Took all my test results to a Lyme literate dr (former president & current board member of ILADS) and he didn't see any of my symptoms or test results leading to me having Lyme anymore.
Does this mean that I do NOT have Lyme?
Still have pain & fatigue issues, along with a severe intolerance to heat.
