Hi guys, I saw the NS last wk he said that my stenosis is so mild it has nothing to do with my widespread symptoms.

I was dx today with lyme disease and start treatment tomorrow...


  • Sorry to hear of your DX, but at least you have a cause that in itself must be a relief.

    Heres to a speedy recovery!!!

  • I grew up in Wisconsin (lots of ticks) and was diagnosed with Lyme Disease when I was a senior in high school. I had been really tired and felt lousy off and on for about a year. They kept testing me for mono and it kept coming back negative. I woke up one morning with excrutiating pain in my left ankle. I couldn't put any weight on it and my mom took me to the ER. They took X-rays, etc. and couldn't find anything wrong. The next day we went to the regular clinic and luckily the GP on duty that day used to practice in Connecticut, (where Lyme Disease was first documented and studied). She took one look at my symptoms and history and immediately ran titers for Lyme's. After confirming the diagnosis, I was put on a two month course of tetracycline. My follow-up titers were low enough to pronounce me "cured", but my ankle still felt sore for a couple years and I have never been able to wear high heals since (darn!)

    At the same time I was diagnosed, my H.S. science teacher was also diagnosed. She was a LOT sicker, though and was hospitalized for several weeks. We ended up with a substitute teacher for an entire semester.

    Hopefully your treatments will go well and you will feel better soon. Good Luck!
