I had lyme disease/babeois for about 9 years. In 2007 I got a negative test from Igenex. After that I developed Hashamoto disease, which in turn I have also developed Aerial Fibration(?) I was wondering if anyone else has had trouble with heart papulations? When my lyme dr. said I would never be the same, what did he mean? There is nothing I can find that tells you what does occur after you are told you no longer have lyme disease. Please help if anyone else is having these same problems...Thanks lam :confused:

Plenty of lymies get heart palps that are often benign and transient. So make sure you have the correct diagnosis of your heart issues.
I know my heart issues sent me to the ER once and then they later just disappeared. I'm still running too.
Bottom line--make sure you get more opinions if you have significant doubts.
Some lyme docs believe in a post lyme syndrome in which the immune system mistakes the body's own cells for Bb or something along those lines. Perhaps that is what your doc is talking about but I know my doc treats that as well.

I have hashimotos disease- basically hypothyroidism. I take synthroid for it. I don't know if it was from the Lyme Disease or not.
My LLMD does not treat the Hashimotos-my endocrinologist does. I will never be the same- my thyroid will be monitored and medicine adjusted as necessary.
I also have SVT-supra ventricular tachycardia-and I take atenolol for that. Again, my LLMD did /does not treat me for that - my primary care doctor does. I don't have heart palps anymore like I used to-wound up in ER couple of times. Now it's just minor-and I take the atenolol every morning.
I can live quite easily with both of these.
BTW- I am no longer in treatment for Lyme Disease, although my LLMD told me upon discharge that he doesn't think Lyme ever goes away really.And if I relapse then I will just go back on antibiotics again.
