nosweat111's Lyme Disease Journey

nosweat111's Lyme Disease Story

I had Lyme for the fist time in 2002. Positive test; no rash. I was infected about 3 months before treatment. LLMD prescribed Doxy for 7 months and I believe my treatment was successful, although my current doctor is not so sure. Not sure if I was tested for co-infections. My second battle began almost three years ago. Diagnosed with Lyme and eventually Babesiosis. Positive tests and a rash (7/3/2010). My first doc, an infectious disease doctor, refused to test me for co-infections because, as he told me, "two of the three will be wiped out with the Lyme by a month of antibiotics and the other one, which is like malaria, would make you so sick that you would know if you had it." I believed him but knew I needed more than a month of antibiotics, which he refused to prescribe. So I found a LLMD in NY State that took my insurance. She tested for co-infections and I tested positive for Babesia! She continued the doxy and added mepron/zythromax. I decided to continue treatment with a much closer, highly-recommended LLMD. Huge mistake! He "cured" me in a month, even with a positive Babesia test and Band 23. Pleased to be "cured," I happily went on about my life. Unfortunately, that happiness didn't last long. I'm an endurance athlete. Race road bikes and train 6-7x a week. I know my body and I knew something wasn't right. I was getting what I called “my bouts of weakness” with tons of other symptoms that came and went...like relapses and remissions. This was starting to really affect my sport. Since I'm used to ignoring pain and pushing my body to the max, I pushed through these bouts for over 2 years, while continuing to get sicker and sicker. I saw doctor after doctor and endured test after test...all negative. But each and every one of them refused to test me for Lyme! Told straight out I didn't have it, that I was simply stressed out and depressed. I thought I was nuts! Then, the first week of January of this year, my body completely crashed. I could no longer to anything physical. I was scared. I was sent to a neurologist just to appease me. Had a brain MRI and a spinal tap. Tests were normal, so I was diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia. I couldn't accept this. I decided to call that that NY State LLMD that I saw in 2010. After listening to only part of my story, she said "you are still infected with Lyme and Babesia." FINALLY!!! I saw her on 4/15/13 and began treatment! I now have HOPE!
