Traveler- I really wish I could find an open minded Neuro in the Seattle area. Most specialist I see actually get angry when I bring up Lyme and tell me it doesn't exist in W.A. My LLND had a patient with a CDC positive and that patient went to see the head of infectious disease at the University of Washington, and he told her there is no Lyme but he would test her for aids! How insulting. Thanks for the info on your symptoms, they do sounds similar. I've always wondered if I have Barts, so hard to tell what's causing what! Does problems with walking seem more like a Lyme, Barts or babs to you?
First, it sounds like either Lyme or Bartonella and may be a combination of the two that is creating this, as Bart is known to make Neuro Lyme symptoms worse. But I'm not sure it matter after that. Treatments & detoxing should stop this - and many other - issues for you.
If you can find out if they are '
open' to Lyme and chronic Lyme, that's a lot better than seeing a doc that won't even consider Lyme as a possible cause. That's like going to a doctor to see if you have cancer and they don't believe in cancer - but we wont' go there.
I actually have very little use for a doctor that won't even believe that a person can have Lyme in their area. They are in such denial that they will be of little use. You will never know if it's Lyme by going to doctors that have their heads stuck in the sand.
I had a doctor that screamed
at me in his office because I wouldn't start MS meds immediately. He was completely convinced that I had MS that was rapidly progressing - good thing I walked out of there and found out I had Lyme disease instead!! At least I was able to treat the real
cause of my issues!
