Hello, I feel certain that I have been misdiagnosed. I tested negative for syphillis and have all the symptoms. No doctor believes that it is possible especially with negative results. I have tried using herbal supplements to cure myself which I believe maybe be why it didn't show up in blood tests. I am on antibiotics (doxycycline hyc) and feel 100% better but once my prescription wears out I fear the same symptoms will return without proper treatment. Since my local hospital and family doctor won't believe me I went to a dermatologist to have him look at my almost healed lesion. He didn't believe me either. I wanted him to take a sample from the lesion and test it before it healed and he wouldn't. I am getting another blood test through a lab he referred me to. From what I read about neurosyphillis I will need to have spinal fluid extracted. I fear that I will not be able to convince a doctor to perform this test. I can't list all the details here but I do believe it is possible to get later stages of syphillis under the right conditions. I am not on here to argue or have someone tell me it is something else. I am totally convinced this is what I have and it is frightening that modern medicine is behind the times. I wish they would just believe me and give me the cure. It is aweful living in fear of the symptoms returning. Since I started the antibiotics I have not noticed any of the neurosyphillus problems but I do notice the damage done. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anybody can help then please let me know. Please!!!!!!!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
