  • Do you suppose Lyme disease is a possibility? What have you been tested for?

  • I guess there have been some admin problems getting posts from unregistered users to show up, so your reply didn't show up until now, (at least for me). Hopefully they have the problem fixed, but just in case it might be a good idea to log in if you post again. It does seem that doctors can be a little too quick to jump to the psychological explanations in cases where they don't immediately know what the matter is. If possible you might consider switching to a doctor who has a reputation of being a really good diagnostician. (Of course that's easier said than done; my problem remains undiagnosed because I have not switched doctors after mine also was too quick to jump to a psychological explanation.) As for my lyme disease suggestion, you could look it up on the internet to see if the symptoms fit. Also, be aware that lyme is only a possiblity if you have been in those states where it is a problem. Please post again if you learn anything; I would be curious to know how this turns out.
