Avatar n tn What I REALLY have is Lyme Disease, but didn't find that out until a year ago. Lyme Disease never even entered the conversation at Mayo. Come on over to the LymeNet Flash Discussion forum to learn more. I think you owe it to yourself to at least pursue the Lyme Disease possibility.
Avatar n tn I was complaining a lot about my lymph node pain and so the doc ordered lupus, mono and lyme disease blood tests, all came back neg. He was ready to send me to a onocologist, but did a leukimia screen which came back neg so he stopped at that and just put his hands up.
Avatar n tn The diagnosis of 'Chronic Lyme disease' is quite controversial. Lyme disease is caused by the spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through deer ticks. Primary infection (recent/acute infection) is characterized by fever, flu-like symptoms, rash (bulls eye rash that expands overtime) and muscle aches. Not everyone experiences the primary infection symptoms.

Avatar n tn I recently had a sinus infection and took amoxycillin and all my pain went away. Does lyme disease come back or is there a condition that develops as a result of having lyme disease?

Avatar n tn I have been suffering with low back pain, knee stiffness, leg weakness, extreme pain in one ankle, bloatiness, etc. for almost two years. It has been getting steadily worse, and I recenly had it suggested to me that it may be Lyme Disease. I was in the Dominican Republic about 2 years ago, and was very ill when I came home. I was eaten alive by the mosquitos there...and was tested for both West Nile and Malaria wfter my return (both were negative) I am an active person, not overweight.....
Avatar f tn I took her to ER they thoght it could not be lyme because she had no pain. the ped. ordered lyme test which was positive. she began anitbiotics on september 8. she was on 3 weeks of doxocycline. then she had her knees each drained 2 times. then she was put on high amoxicilin for ten days. she still was not better and her knees were swollen. we went to infectious disease specialist who immediately ordered IV antibiotics for 28 days.
Avatar f tn There are MDs in the UK who take Lyme more seriously, and I just googled 'england lyme disease' and got some very good leads. Lyme is a tricky infection, and can also be accompanied by other diseases that may not be susceptible to doxycycline, so can't say for certain whether another test would be affected by the doxy. Not everyone gets a rash or sees a tick, perhaps only half of us, so that is no sure indicator.
Avatar f tn 85mm i have a pain in right knee and at the lower back from 2months please sujjest me what problem or disease to me. Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn It could be an injury that you do not recall, or it could be something like Lyme Disease or gout or really any number of things. You need to get it checked out. Good luck.
Avatar n tn That night he began to get unbearable pain in back and knees. Knee pain has gotten somewhat better but back pain prevents him from activites and school. He also has asthma and has been seeing a chiropractor for backpain. I am told by DERM. that steroids do not leave the keloid??I find that hard to believe. Do you feel the shots can cause a major Lyme relapse and worsening of symptoms?
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with lyme disease in January and treated with 28 days of doxicycline, felt really good for about 2weeks now I have the same knee joint pain and the frontal thight pain pretty consistantly, and if i sit for any amount of time my whole lower body goes stiff.

Avatar n tn A large number of doctors and infectious disease doctors will do not want to discuss lyme disease. Please get some help. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn Docs who could see in their patients that Lyme+ are spreading and that Lyme is a tricky disease to diagnose and treat have a separate group, ILADS, for Intl Lyme and Associated Disease Society. The IDSA/CDC bunch things ILADS docs commit malpractice on a daily basis. Yet the IDSA/CDC docs shrug and tell patients they have fibromyalgia or MS or psychological problems, and look no further.
Avatar m tn They sent a sample to the MAYO clinic and those results showed she tested positive for Epstein Bar disease and Lyme disease. They're telling us the lyme disease is a false positive due to epstein bar. I think they also said she has lymphomitosis due to the epstein bar. This has been drug out for a month now and she has been in a lot of pain. Jaw pain, joint pain, aches, cramps, shortness of breath etc.
Avatar f tn Is the bullseye rash always a sign of lyme disease or does that happen with any tick bite? Can you go years and years without ever knowing you have lyme disease? I have taken antibiotics during my lifetime would that just automatically get rid of the disease or does it go away on it's own? Thanks hope to hear from someone.
Avatar n tn you here over and over again the Lyme Disease advocates saying don't give up you might have Lyme. Well here is a good case in point: Martha DID have Lyme. I have had two or three negative antibody tests and one recent negative Western Blot. What other tests pick up neurological Lyme? Is a lumbar puncture the only way to know for absolute sure?
Avatar m tn That is when I was finally diagnosed with Lyme, and then treated. I know someone who also had Lyme and a co-infection [another disease carried by the Lyme ticks] but he only felt tired. It was only by accident was the infection was diagnosed. One of the mysteries of Lyme is why it affects some people worse than others. I just searched "india lyme disease" and there are websites that talk about Lyme in India. (Do the search without the "quote" marks.
Avatar n tn However, a small percentage of people with Lyme disease do not fully recover or recover very slowly. There may be residual facial palsy or residual knee pain or numbness and tingling. These chronic and recurring symptoms have been called chronic Lyme disease. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Welcome to MedHelp Lyme -- I am sorry you have been through so much! Have you located a physician who specializes in Lyme disease? That would be my first suggestion. I just searched online (via google) for the phrase: finland lyme disease and there were many links. There seems to be an awareness among the medical and scientific community in Finland that Lyme is present and significant.

Avatar f tn 1571-1583) Lyme Disease (Lyme borreliosis), caused by the tick-borne spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, may progress from an initial skin infection to a disabling multisystemic illness. Now the most common vector-borne infection in the United States, Lyme disease is increasing in incidence and geographic spread (1). The disease has dermatologic, arthritic, ophthalmologic, cardiac, neurologic, and psychiatric manifestations (2).
Avatar n tn Had a total knee replacement six months ago because of a torn ACL, torn meniscus and arthritic knee. The pain is now worse than before I had the replacement surgery. My knee is always swollen, stiff and hot to touch since surgery. I have taken Celebrex that helped the pain but had to stop because my kidney function BU/CU ratio is now elevated. I cannot take other NSAID's because they elevate my blood pressure. I have a history of chronic Lyme disease.
394017 tn?1255018132 Discussed the results of my MRI and neurological tests. Neurologist does not think I have MS and agreed to test for Lyme disease. Said the MRI showed that the arthritis in my neck is worse. Neurologist asked if it was giving me much pain and it isn't right now. I forgot to ask about whether dysautonomia could be the cause of these problems, like the IST and migrating pain in SI, hip bursa, and knee.
Avatar n tn My husband has chronic lyme disease and has been in treatment for 16 months with oral antibiotics and 6 of those with ceftriaxone IV. His LLMD is puzzled why he is not progressing more. He also had a second lyme test and the test had less bands, the dr felt that he should be feeling better at this point. He has not tested positive for any coinfections though was treated for babesia based on symptoms. He did test positive for mycolplasma.
Avatar n tn In our studies we found that a rather high percentage of Fibromyalgia Syndrome patients were also Lyme patients, with the percentage much higher in Lyme regions than non-Lyme regions. Although some alternative practitioners claim to be able to diagnose Lyme by the presence of spirochetes in a blood smear, most physicians depend on Western blot determination of Borrelia burgdorferi proteins in the blood plasma. One of the best laboratories for this is IgeneX (
Avatar n tn Hi springbrock, There is no connection between ALS & lyme disease. Lyme disease is caused by an infected tick bite. Unfortunately, many people who suffer from lyme disease have a negative blood test and then find out later, that they do in fact have lyme disease. There are false negatives and also, sometimes the result is negative because the bacteria isn't present in that particular sample of blood.
