Well, I got my results from two different labs. For the most part it is negative for Lyme. I really don't know how to feel about
it. My doctor wants to continue to treat me for it because he doesn't have confidence in the testing. He says he has no other explanation for my illness. The bizarre rash I have on my knuckles and the face, neck rash he feels is a secondary infection of bartonella. I am not sure what to believe even. He wants me to take two weeks of Zithromax and then another antibiotic, starts with a c, I think.
How do you push through the awful antibiotic reaction when you don't really know what you have going on in the inside?
My doctor said that my body doesn't recognize the bacteria so it doesn't make antibodies for it, so it doesn't show up. I am so frustrated because I want a clear cut answer.
I have been asking my friends if they would choose to continue the treatment if they were not sure of the disease, and most of them have asked me What do you got to lose? Seriously...dont know.
