That is my experience, too, July. But these other diseases like diabetes, fibromyalgia and chronic myofascia pain (which each have a myriad of other related conditions involved) become part of the chronic Lyme complex. They will either be cured with Lyme treatments or not, if they have other reasons, like genetic or cellular damage, for being there.
Fibromyalgia will subside when the body is no longer sending massive signals to the brain that the body is in mortal danger - it is really just the emergency broadcasting system that uses symptoms of other underlying problems to express itself. Chronic Myofascia Pain may be more related directly Lyme's, and it is a profound trigger of fibromyalgia, not the other way around. That is what I am trying to get to the bottom of in my own unravelling discovery of Lyme's influence and all its contradictions. It is more like a mother switch - something that irritates everything else because it is invasive and alien to our body, it does not belong there, and it enflames everything.
Just because you discover you have Lyme, it does not eliminate the other things that doctors diagnosed and treated you for. Diabetes, FMS/CMP all run in my family, not all family members have indications of Lyme disease. Unfortunately we can have multiples of conditions, parasites and diseases in the human body, that is why people here say FOCUS on immune system, gut health and freeing yourself of Lyme's, then MAYBE everything else will subside. If not, those other things will continue to be problems, long after the critters are purged from our tissues, and we will still have to cope with what remains.
Yeah...I was diagnosed with it(both of them) in 1985, instead of Lyme. Wasted and destroyed my body not getting proper treatment for over 3 decades. I'm sorry to be so bitter about
it, but then I lived through many years of Fibro being called a trash can sonomatic disorder too. I won't go into detail about
what the Lyme did to my body that certain things like prescript
ion Vit. D, B12, night time oxygen(because I have night time hypoxia) made the "Chronic fatique Syndrome" disappear. Syndromes are, in my mind, nothing more than symptoms tacked onto other disorders that MD's don't know the cause of.
But that's me, and I can't say what was wrong with me has any bearing on anyone else. I wouldn't say that at all.
