After having symptoms for more than a year and a half

and just recently having a possitive test

I had some positive bands almost 3 years ago, but not enough to "have Lyme Disease"


I saw an infectious disease expert while having horrible herxing symptoms after being put on the antibiotics by my PCP

....he believes that because I never found a tick or had the bullseye rash and that the bands show that I have only had the disease for 4-6 weeks


the test was a false positive and I am simply depressed and having physical symptoms of that depression.

I'm desperate to find a doctor near Bridgeport CT that can help me.

My PCP is supportive of my test results, but even he thinks that I am in the accute phase

he can't explain why I have felt terrible for over a year now.


I'm at my wits end.....any info you could provide would be so greatly appreciated.

welcome jana; please check your profile above for my pm to you on CONN. llmds [Smile] so sorry you've had to suffer for so long.


DO NOT GO TO INFECTIOUS DRS!! they undertreat up to 3 wks. max; and say you are CURED! NOPE, you are just headed to be a chronic lyme patient as you are now.


i sent you my welcome note earlier; glad you found seeking dr. forum ok! [Smile] xox
