Hello all,...i dont want to write so much, because it would be allot to write about its only been a month and half with these symptoms ever since i notice a long scratch sitting in the park on my neck no rash though..since aug 7.
but i need to see a doc soon i feel like im wasting so much time...im so afraid what i have may be related to cardiac lyme...i have an appointment soon with a ILAD...but not for another week and some....i was tested negative by western blot...
but my chest pains in the manumbrium which is the main symptom i have come and go..occasional mild elbow pain but it goes away..i have occasional night sweats, and waking up early..early this morning i had what felt like a heart attack....
i feel fine now after taking cayneene pepper...and i dont want to go to the ER again....smh...the doct that tested me i asked for anti-biotics and prescribed them to be just in case it is lyme related...
but not sure if i should start them or not..and make matters worse....i need help fast....my life depends on it
(breaking up the text for easier reading for many here)
I would recommend you also write a new post in "Medical Questions" and include the text about your personal situation. Many will gladly offer advice to help you.
You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment!
A LLMD is one who has treated Lyme disease and the co-infections which come with it for many years and has gotten patients well. A good one will follow Dr. B's Guidelines, the "gold standard" for Lyme treatment.
[**NOTE: I strongly urge you to go to the NYC Lyme Group, as they are very educated on the various local doctors. They can help you to figure out the best doctor for your situation, and alternative if that doctor is very booked up. Also, they are very knowledgeable about treatment, etc., not to mention supportive of you.]
Btw - I know you are new to Lymenet, but please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme.
To do this click the pencil/paper icon, make your changes, then click "Edit Post". Thanks.
