Lyme Disease?

Postby Wackers34 » Sat Nov 16, 2013 5:50 pm

I just wondered if everyone who has fibro and neuro symptoms have been tested for Lyme Disease?

I live in part of UK where there are lots of forests, and i often used to go walking round them...Sometimes i wonder if my Fibro / cfs is actually Lyme disease, its only because over time I seem to be getting worse instead of stable / better and feeling like i can cope?

If anyone has been tested for this, can they let me know how and what do you ask the doctors for?

Many thanks :o)

A friend who has had fibro for years pushed her GP for a test some months ago and is now being treated for and using a diet recommended for Lyme Disease. The problem apparently is that the NHS does not recognise the existence of chronic Lyme disease and thus refuses to treat it. She says her doc agreed just to shut her up.
