Hello, I wish someone could tell me what is wrong with me. I have had kidney infections, muscle spasms, joint pain, and now have a rash on my chest that goes up my neck and around to my back. I was tested for lupus and lyme about a year ago, that was negative. Any ideas. I know there is something wrong.......:confused:
Thank you very much,

  • Lupus and Lyme are connected. Get retested for Lyme with the western blot test, its more accurate than the elisha. Many people have been misdx'd with other things, when Lyme or a coinfection is the real cause. The bacteria isn't always in the boold when its drawn, but through the body, so its hard to dx. Part of the dx is clinical and it sounds like that might be your problem. Go here for more info lymenet.org Best wishes~~Dee
