Dear Blaze:
I know that your Dr.s were screwing you around with your Diagnoses and I am sorry for that.
You have to know that probably only one percent of posters on this web site actually have Lyme desiese and it is possible that your the only one.
You need to stop telling everyone that they have Lyme desiease espesially ones that clearly do not. such as the woman that posted the other day asking if she could be pregnant because of hormonal changes. Have you ever had children? Have you ever studied medicine specializing in obstetrics and gynecology? I have had two and I am also in med school to be an OB/GYN.

I do know of lots of stories tho, with people with a bunch af symptoms and no diagnoses and years later they do get diagnosed with Lyme.
I know some dr.s do start to think their patients are just making up symptoms or making them self sick when no tests clearly show a problem. At that point that person should find another Dr.

Dr.s or government is not hiding anything about Lyme it is just sometimes very hard to find in patients and may not show up on any tests for prolonged period of times.

So while you continue to hold a grudge against all Dr.s for your bad expearience with one or two Dr.s you need to actually read what people are writing and think of all the other possibilities of what could be wrong with them.

This is not an attack towards you but I am asking you to open your eyes and look at the other possibilities of what could be wrong, you have to remember how many other infections and desieases there are in the world and Lyme is really not that common in mexico.

I am not telling everyone to not test for Lyme cause I think that you should if you can't get any diagnoses but if you havn't been gettting a diagnoses for who know how long then you should also be finding a new Dr.

Rachel
