I have spend like 4000 dollars already on those doctors vistiong and test...etc.

I have read people here do all kinds of treatment or even travel to Germany to do the Bionic treatment,I just can't afford it..

Most of us are very sick and don't have a job,so who pay those money for you..?my husband starts to complain already..

I'm upwards of $6000K as of now. My monthly totals average about $400 / month in meds / supplements / follow up dr visits.

The 3 months that I was "undiagnosed" were expensive with numerous tests. I met all of my in network and out of network deductibles.

I work full time.

I haven't added it up, but I would guess tens of thousands. I recently did see our medical budget should be $2,000 per month for supps, trips, doctors, etc.

We've been doing this for almost 3 years.

My husband has a good job and isn't sick. Most of this money is for our daughter's medical care, but some of it is mine.

Probably half a million was spent on UNDIAGNOSED Lyme. That's why I say it is a lot cheaper to get recognized in the first place, including for insurance companies.

I'm in the neighborhood of about $125,000++ and counting. Beyond frustrated. Still not well. Wish I could get that money back and have a "do-over". So much wasted money on useless doctors.....
