kmarie88's Lyme Disease Story

Pain, exhaustion, headaches, kidney problems, fatigue, brain fog, more pain, excruciating pain. This is what the last 12 years have been despite all the wonderful places I have seen and the wonderful people I have come to love and the family who has supported me through it all. And how absolutely normal I look and act (or at least I hope you would agree with that...!) After being passed from specialist to specialist and being tested for just about everything associated with intense muscle and joint pain - rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia - it was brought to my attention that they had never tested me for something I could have easily contracted on the family camping trips we took when I was a kid in the Rocky Mountains between BC and Alberta. Lyme. Then I had to think, which would be worse? Fibromyalgia - a lifetime of expensive medications that barely dull my pain and may help me sleep? Or Lyme Disease - a few years of herxheimer reactions to the medication with the hope of 80-90% recovery after a year or two or three? Could it be possible that I haven't felt 80-90% since I was 8 years old? My naturopath thought it was highly likely so she sent me in for testing. God blessed me with a complimentary test after the first blood sample was delayed by USPS, saving me $350. Thanks USPS! The last two months has been filled with pain, vomiting and nausea, not to mention fatigue like never before, as my Naturopath had me on a regime to rid my body of some other silly toxins I picked up along the way. Something you also may not know is that Lyme is very controversial in Canada. And chronic or late-stage Lyme, even more so. Canada's tests are inaccurate and insufficient for finding lyme borrelia in the blood as it is a tricky little bugger that hides really well in the system. The US has labs that are much more accurate and have doctors that actually believe this disease exists. Google it and you will see that Lyme disease indeed exists. People are often misdiagnosed as MS, Lupus, Fibromalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Parkinson's, RA, Hypochondriasis and just plain crazy. My family doctor referred me to a rheumatologist at the age of 13 or 14 to check for Rheumatoid Arthritis. The doctor's conclusion was that I was just depressed and quickly gave me years of antidepressants. Maybe I was depressed, but it was most likely because of the endless pain and feeling like an 80 year old woman at the age of 14. When I took my Lyme results

"My naturopath felt more comfortable testing through Neuroscience because she has good rapport with the lab. I quietly decided to get tested at iGenex if the Neuroscience test came back negative, but I."
