Lyme Disease - Hello All, I am new to this group but not to the site. I have been experiencing?
Added 23 May 2012:
I am new to this group but not to the site. I have been experiencing severe joint/muscle pain, ongoing low grade fevers, extreme fatigue, heart palpations, and some headaches. This has been going on for four weeks and after 5 doctor visits and many tests to rule out viral and other concerns I was told by my doctor he strongly believes I have Lyme Disease and is already starting me on an antibiotic for 21 ways even though the official test results have started because I have been so very sick. Is it common to have the doctor say before official results are in that he is confident about diagnosing me with Lyme and starting me ASAP on meds?
Jennylynnforeva, This ailment is caused by a specfic deer tick am I right?
It ends up being a bacterial infection causing all kinds of problems . Like a severe arthritis and other problems. Did the Dr. say its got to run its course? I would be interested in what your Dr has told you. I do hope you get better very soon.
