Any "Lyme" Stories on Here?
Boy this has been frustrating
My 26 year old daughter who a few years back was one term away from completing her nursing school
And then the health issues came and she did not finish----when it started the Doctors could'nt figure what was ailing her
Standard blood tests showed nothing
A year and a half back she came back home and we looked into what was going on
An MRI showed a brain issue---and the doctor was ready to declare MS (Our lyme research shows this is common)
Also a year ago I suggested if it could be Lyme?----one blood test---came back negative---so they said no to it
So onward to neuro-specialists---cardiologists---and varying types of specialists--all not finding a reason
She now walks with a cane---has to wear special light sensitive glasses and just this week her speech became slurred
So Ma N Pa start the research again and 99% of her symptoms over this time look like Lyme disease---we have found this is blowing up worldwide and the medical community is not keeping up
Many other people are going through the same dead ends our daughter has---up to and including it may be psychological
I did some calling and found there is a skin biopsy that may show something---so this Tuesday she has another appt to ask her family doctor for any clues
So is there anybody else here dealing with this nightmare?
