Hi Everyone,

I have been ill for a year. The symptoms I now have.
Stiff neck, heavy legs, vibrating legs, tingling in legs, arms, fatigue, only severe when I am too physical with anything, arthritis pain, not severe, but is there, broken sleep, but sleep a good amount, spasms all over, do not hurt, but there, some trembling, fogginess sometimes.

I got sick from a pet shelter. Bugs all over me, different days. Had the tests, PCR, Alissa, normal bloods, all neg.

I can do anything, except walk up stairs, well I could do it, but dont feel like it, dont want to get too fatigued.

With having been on meds 3 x's in a year, once for this, twice for bronchitis, is it possible the Lyme has not had a good chance to develop???

Anyway, what do you guys think?
Also, My PCP thinks this is not Lyme, but I am in the works to see Dr. D. in Boston and get some help!

Thank You!

Rob, those are all classic symptoms of lyme, despite what the doc says. In order to adequately treat lyme, you should be treated with abx until symptom free, and then an additional 6-8 weeks to just to make sure.

Going to an LLMD is definitely the right move.

I agree that going to a lyme literate doctor is a good thing to do. Often tets for lyme come back negative and the diagnosis is made by symptoms. Good luck. Hiker
