I am a 39 yo mother of 2. I have had a FUO for 2 years. I have seen 4 doctors, refered to Wash. Univ. infectious disease dept. with no answers. Had a bone marrow biopsy (painful!!) with normal results. I have done many hours of internet research, still wonder if I have a tick borne illness. All tests for them have came back neg. My primary Dr. prescribed Doxycycline for 4 weeks at my urging, no change. I was fever free for 2 mo., fever came back along with same feeling of fatigue 3 weeks ago. fever from 99.5 to 100.5. My kids want their mom back. I don't want to live feeling like this anymore but I can't find a Dr. that will go that extra mile to find out what is wrong with me. I live in Missouri, anyone else have these symptoms/found a Dr. that can help????

  • They say that if the lymes disease bacteria is dormant that the tests will come up negative and that there are coinfections to test for. Check out this website and see if it helps: http://info.lymebook.com/matthewgoss.html Good luck!
