Without going into a long detail of history, I have been experiencing a wide range of symptoms for about two and a half years, constant and progressive over the last two years now. I have been to numerous doctors and specialist who have all run their tests and come up with no obvious results. I have had one specialist in the very beginning of this starting who believed my symptoms were related to anxiety and the last specialist I saw diagnosed me with fibromyalgia once my test results came back with no results. Neither of these specialists' diagnosis are ones I feel confident in the least bit subscribing to or settling for. Based on my long list of symptoms and my research, I feel that I possibly have a late stage case of lyme disease. My primary doctor has been of no help other than to refer me to a multitude of different specialists, one of whom was an infectious disease specialist who I asked to be referred to after I saw an alternative medicine professional who believed I have lyme. The infectious disease specialist laughed and scoffed when I told her the alternative medicine doctor believed I had lyme and did not run any of her own tests. I am in search of a lyme literate specialist in the Bucks or Montgomery County area who will listen to me and run the appropriate tests to determine whether or not I am and have been suffering from lyme. Any reccommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Breaking this up for easier reading for many here.

Yes, sounds like you have gotten the usual run-around -

It will be easier for people to assist you if you can add PA to the heading. You can click on the pencil icon to edit.

Hope you get a doctor soon!

You could try your online state group. To find yours, go to http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/statenamelyme and follow the directions. Or just type in your statename instead of statename in the URL above. E.g. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/northcarolinalyme

I sent you a private message with info for PA.

The fibromyalgia I've had for 32 years was an undiagnosed Lyme symptom.

"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". -Jeremiah 29:11
