Darian - there aren't many diseases that cause that many symptoms. One of them is Lyme disease.
I have or have had many of your symptoms.
Having one band positive means your body is reacting to the lyme bacteria in your body. I'm not surprised the ID Dr. dismissed you. It is common for Dr.s, even specialists to deny people have lyme disease. That's why seeing a LLMD is so important.
You could do an Igenex Western IgG and IgM for$210. and also make an appt. with a LLMD. When you see him/her you will have your results in hand. (they take approx. three weeks to process)
In the meantime, have a look at the thread at the top of the page titled: "New to Lyme?..Start Here" It's full of good information. The section on detoxing is important - as we need to help our bodies rid the toxins that are created when we kill off the bacteria during treatment.
While waiting for your appointment, you could start detoxing on a daily basis.
If you need help finding a LLMD, we can help you.
You can start a new thread titled: Looking for LLMD in/near_________ and insert your city/town and State.
