Hello everyone, thanks for all the info that has been shared on this board. it really helps to sort some things out.
Just wondering - if blood tests for Lyme disease are Negative, but doctor strongly suspects Lyme disease, yet only treats me with herbal supplements.. have I got any right to demand some kind of proper treatment from my general practitioner MD? Is there such a thing as seronegative Lyme? In my country, if your tests are negative, then - you have no hope, even if you remember actually having an errithema migrans.
has anyone received serious antibiotic treatment despite negative tests?
this is so confusing and yet so URGENT as I was 8 months pregnant when (IF) I got LD, baby girl had problems but is now generally ok
Probably tick bite August 2007, while 8 months pregnant
Severe Knee arthritis started February 2008, Dx - Reactive Arthritis, which subsequently took over all large joints
Elisa IgM and IgG both Negative, Western Blot IgM - Negative
2nd diagnoses April 2009 - probably seronegative Lyme disease
treatments so far unsuccessul. (2 week ab twice), Currently no meds, but naturopathic supplements
I still hope :)
