Just found this site, glad I did!


I found a deer tick on me not too long ago (June
25th 07) About 10 days later I started to get
chills, pain in my neck, back,shoulders, head
ache and the right side of my face hurt.

The pain was pretty bad and I finally went to the hospital on July 8th. They did a Lyme titer and sent me home with an RX for Doxycycline.


Three days later I went back to the hospital,
the pain was unbearable. I had Bells Palsy and my right arm was numb.

I ended up staying there for 3 days. The titer was positive. I never had a rash.


They put in a picc line and have been on IV
Rocephin for a month, my last treatment is
tonight.

The Bells Palsy and numb arm are gone
now but am still in a lot of pain in my neck and
shoulders and just feel horrible.

Looking for any docs near Philly or anywhere.

Suggestions appreciated!!
Thanks!!!

Brent,
May I suggest you copy the 'story' part and use the drop down box at bottom of page and post again over in 'general' and join in on other convo.

Welcome aboard,,sorry you HAD to come here,,,but glad you found us!! Seems like LOTS of Penn people here these days

I just read where Penn. has the second most reported cases of all states,,,so there are lots more around you,,,neighbors, friends relatives??? They probably dont have a clue WHAT is wrong with them,,,just know something is.


Get to a good LLMD and regain your life quality!! Thanks for sharing--just don--
