All,
My name is Matt, and for the last 7 years I have been battling anmyriadnof symptoms from headaches to difficulty walking at times. My symptoms have included:
Headaches
Fatigue (from mild to severe)
Muscle weakness
Sight problems- tunnel vision, blurry vision
Shaky
Muscle twitches
Brain fog
Depression/anxiety with no apparent cause
Swollen glands
Stiff muscles
Aches & pains throughout body
And many more...

The symptoms seem to come & go and at times have been almost debilitatig. At this point I just feel so sick. I was diagnosed with strep throat recently, started 500mg amaoxicillin 2x per day and actually feel worse. All labs negative/normal. I've been to the ER twice this week and thy just acted like I was a complete hypohondriac. Therefore, I am going to try to take this upon myself to get the help I need before I cost myself a marriage and my 5-month old baby.

If someone knows of a great LLMD in the Virginia area please let me know. I am in the Roanoke/New River Valley area, but I am willing to travel if necessary. Thanks in advance for your help. I truly hope one day all those suffering can find the true relief we need from this truly horrible disease.

God bless,
Matt

PM of MD's sent.

It's amazing there is a controversy to this insidious disease and I've found it easiest to show a couple of u tube video's on the controversy.

If you watch this video you can see some of the miss diagnosis.

Please consider joining your own state group in the LymeDisease.org network. Many groups are sizable enough to offer quite a bit of help. Go to http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/statenamelyme to find how to find your group.
