230 – Symptoms

Excerpted from CANLYME

The classic rash may only occur or have been seen in as few as 30% of cases (many rashes in body hair and indiscreet areas go undetected). Treatment in this early stage is critical.

The Lyme Rash

 

If left untreated or treated insufficiently symptoms may creep into ones life over weeks, months or even years. They wax and wane and may even go into remission only to come out at a later date…even years later.

With symptoms present, a negative lab result means very little as they are very unreliable. Read here. The diagnosis, with today’s limitations in the lab, must be clinical.

Many Lyme patients were firstly diagnosed with other illnesses such as Juvenile Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Reactive Arthritis, Infectious Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Interstitial Cystis, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, Fifth Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, scleroderma, lupus, early ALS, early Alzheimers Disease, crohn’s disease, ménières syndrome, reynaud’s syndrome, sjogren’s syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, prostatitis, psychiatric disorders (bipolar, depression, etc.), encephalitis, sleep disorders, thyroid disease and various other illnesses. see Other Diseases and Lyme…Relationship

    • Vickie,
      I am not a doctor though I have been investigating and addressing TBI – tick borne illnesses – for well over a decade.

      The most important issue is:
      If you are infected and you delay treatment, the infection may progress to the chronic/irreversible point.

      If you have 3 or more LYME symptoms, then you are correct to be suspicious. FM is definitely one of them. If you do have multiple symptoms, then you should seek out a reputable Lyme Literate Doctor.
      Garlic is a natural antibiotic that is a good strategy should your doctor deny you DOXYCYCLENE, etc. But, be sure to replenish your good bacteria with Acidophilus supplements.

      Best of luck and keep us posted on your progress,
      Rob
