1 ruger9 4 months ago I was just diagnosed last friday.I've suffered headaches, stomach issues, and muscle pain for many years... at least 15... and get tested every year for lyme, because I do alot of outdoor stuff. It always came back negative. FALSE negative, apparently.I've had X-rays, MRIs, physical therapy, massage, myofascial release, even did some lifestyle/stress reduction stuff (which was badly needed anyway).... nothing provided any answers or helped. Well, the stress reduction and massage DID help, but never all the way... I felt like I was just keeping how unwell I was down to a manageable level.I just had a more accurate lyme test done at one of the lyme-specialist labs, and it came back positive. As I suspected it would. they are now running my blood for all the co-infections that commonly go along with lyme.Western medicine doesn't have much to offer, just a 28-day run of doxycycline, which I just started tonight. But as I research, I see it's already been found that CHRONIC lyme can survive a 28-day course of doxy. Researching what to do AFTER that... alternative treatments....Just thought I'd vent here, see if anyone can offer any advice from their own experiences, as I feel like this forum is more FRIENDS of mine than other forums are, especially since I've met and played with a bunch of you.
