Docs in the know and there's a few, say Lupus, MS, fibro, Parkinsons and more as well as what I was diagnosed with called Sjorgen's Syndromes with joint inflammation auto immune, are actually ALL the same pathogens attacking and living in different areas of an individual's body. Thus different names.
Lymes, mycoplasmas, virals and other pathogens that give these symptoms of what the mainstream doesn't test for in pathogens and calls it auto immune.
The in the know docs say it's bacteria attacking the body, the mainstream says, it's the body attacking the body.
Some of these scientists or research doctors say these names like Lupus, Sjogrens, Chronic Fatigue, Fibro, are "ONLY SYMPTOMS" of the same pathogens.
The strange pains, inflammation, and other symptoms are just symptoms of the same chronic illness found in people with the same pathogens.
I didn't believe my rhumy specialist who was trying to say I developed this incurable auto immune with symptoms over a short time.
Perhaps easier for me being "duped" by mainstream recently from something else so I questioned. Plus my cog and so so sick and weak, as much as he tried to fit it in, didn't explain my stuttering etc.
I got online, found this site, Dr. Garth Nicholson nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, molecular biologist. Got tested for Mycoplasmas Fermantans of which I was positive.
I felt through symptoms I had neuro lymes with co infections too of virals and other bugs and just this week got more "outside" physical signs like livedo rash, blood pin prick rash and bart stuff, swelling in feet, all after baths and very strong.
I found the pics of what came on after my baths, online finally on a maryland lymes rash site. Some lasted a few days, some left after a few hours.
I'm confirmed just like I suspected. I'm health nut ex runner so it's not anything else. Low body fat and great cardio.
Many of us had positive ANA's myself included and misdiagnosed with these fantastic autoimmunes and have lymes. I truly believe, the docs that say these diseases are just symptoms of chronic pathogen infection.
They are saying, Lupus IS lymes. MS is lymes. Symtpoms "of" right? NOT 2 different diseases.
Good okay? Wishing you all the best and healing.
