Hi Lymetoo
I went through this colon resection ,started to regain strength and something took me down bad.

I get so tired i can't do anything worn out to the extreme .
Cant take care of my place here ,grass is getting very tall ,i can't mow.

Blood test like the regular ones show nothing.

Doctors do not know what it is.

Is the lyme back taking me down???

I need something to prove it.

MADDOG HELP!!

Maybe you could get someone to do a Western Blot test for Lyme disease. Often that one is best at showing persistent Lyme disease infection.

Your body has been through a lot and perhaps you have done too much, too soon, after your surgery. Make yourself get some rest, and try to put worries aside for a couple of hours every day.

Even the best dogs need lots of naps!

Want to try experimenting with energy supplements?

Flower pollen gave me energy.

Supermalic gave me energy - magnesium and malic acid.

It may take a few months for you to regain your strength.

Perhaps your gut is not absorbing nutrients or something??

Thanks everyone
Western blot I just need to do.

I think some rest would help a lot,however I have a ton of work here i can't do. Like mowing.

My grass is a foot tall.Or you could say my weeds.

I wondered about energy supplements.

I am supposed to do the herbal lyme treatment at some point.

Get a weed whacker. It takes lots less energy and you can make a nice wide path through the weeds/grass in no time! Then tell everyone you are making your area nature friendly. I do.

Hi Maddog.
I hope your back is feeling better. Sounds like your riding mower isn't doing what it was meant to do!

Weed whackers are fun! I am glad you got a battery powered one as those gasoline-powered ones are huge air and noise pollutants.

I was diagnosed thru DNA Connections. It's a PCR test. It is looking for the DNA of 14 different things. I got a positive for Babs, bart, and borellia. It was worth the $500 cost because it also checked for other co-infections.

--------------------
symptoms since 1993 that I can remember. 9/2018 diagnosed with Borellia, Babesia Duncani, and Bartonella Hensalae thru DNA Connections.
