Ok so I thought FB was gonna be a great place for support and a great spot to post my fight against Lyme Disease and the horrible medical system. Also damage from a spinal block, and a failed hip/back surgery made worse by active un-diagnosed Lyme, and PTSD from everything above. It isnt crazy to have active Lyme if never treated as a child when me and all my family and their neighbors were either diagnosed with Lyme or MS, which closely is related with Lyme. Studies needed!! I would of course still have “active Lyme” 45 yrs later. But according to the doctors, bc I don’t have the CDC’s tracking test result with 4 + bands and 1ind, they claim I am Lyme negative. If doctors cared enough to read more than the first 2 sentences, if they bothered at all to look, they would see that the stats doesn’t represent but a 10th of people living with Lyme anf those numbers are PER YR!! The CDC even says, on their website, not to use them and their data collection criteria for diagnostic purposes. They have it very narrow so as not to catch as many Lyme sufferers that, they believe could be false positive results. They like throw us into the Fibromyalgia bucket, because with no tests unavailable and no proof it exists it doesnt seem right! More later!
