Interesting read. I've also shown all but the rash. Passing out and heart issues where when I realized something was wrong.
I've also had a ton of tests and other than a chronic sinus infection they've found nothing. I've had some major work up done since October. Started getting lumps in my chest and left pit. They don't stay. I finally had one long enough my doc felt it. More tests.
More nothing. I've also had stroke symptoms. By the time I made it in to urgent care both cheeks were numb. Still nothing.
On meds I started feeling better. After the second round I actually started feeling human again. And slipped backwards until a few weeks ago. I don't feel great but I don't feel like tonight's my last night alive. There were times doing dishes was impossible without 16-18 hours of sleep. Showers were out.
The crappy part is when you start getting told in a round about way your a hypochondriac. Yet you rarely take aspirin or ibuprofen.
They did do a lymes test (Elisa). I wasn't high enough to get the second western blot test.
There's a new tick disease out there with all the same symptoms with no rash!!!!http://healthland.time.com/2013/07/19/theres-a-new-disease-spread-by-ticks-and-its-not-lyme/
Lastly look up igenex in California. At some point I'm hoping to get tested by them. They've come highly recommended. http://www.igenex.com/Website/#
