Oh gosh, Little hutton!!!
What you have described could of been my first post here!! I am so very sorry for all that you have gone through!!!
So you live in the UK? Have you been to any online support groups for Lyme Disease based in the UK? Here is a link to one of them -health.groups.yahoo.com/group/EuroLyme/
One of the few things that I know about
tick-borne infections over there is that unless you got infected from somewhere else, you would be carrying a very different strain of LD than what is commonly seen here in the US. So the treatments that you will read about
here may be different by necessity. Don't get me wrong though, we can still help you make it through this time in your life!!!
With the symptoms that you listed, if you don't
have tick-borne infections I would be surprised!!! Most docs over here take the ostrich stand (head in the sand - "If I can't see it, it won't harm me!), & it sounds like there's not a whole lot of difference in how patients are treated.
I would also like to suggest that you read as much as you can, as you will need to become your own health advocate - ensuring you get the best treatment possible. You should start with the thread at the top of this forum "New to Lyme?...Start here", if you haven't already read through it. It contains some very important information about
tick-borne diseases & what you can do to help yourself.
I do hope that this has been helpful.
Hang in there!!
