Well congratulations on finding another piece to your puzzle! I hope that it proves to be the key to your healing!
That what is making us sick is much more than "just" Lyme is something that I've been saying most of the time I've been on this forum - it's rarely only Lyme when you have been infected for any real amount of time. It's a shame that your "old" doctor didn't realize this, and you are very lucky that your new doc thinks about
We have even been seeing an increase in asymptomatic (no symptoms) infections with Babesia and Bartonella - and I wouldn't count out the other tick-borne infections being that was either! We are only just now seeing the "tip of the iceberg" with the research that is ongoing with these infections. Much, much more will be revealed as we go along. Always keep an
open mind to how these infections can present and how they can change in order of bacterial loads and more. There is so very much more we have to learn! There's simply no way for one doctor to be able to know about
all the possibilities that can happen with these infections at this point - one day, yes they will, but for now we have to rely on each other to get a better picture of the possibilities of what might be going on and preventing us from healing. Believe me, back in 2007, no one ever thought that these infections could be asymptomatic, that we would have gene mutations stopping us from detoxing well and much more.
