Yes... me. I have Lyme disease and have learned a lot about it. Now, I am not saying that all cases of FM are LYME, but the symptoms are exactly the same so it is important to find out. A regular blood test is not going to do it. Lyme disease is treatable... if you are interested in seeking information for yourself please go to www.lymediseaseassociation.org for more information on symptoms and how to find a LYME LITERATE DOCTOR. Most doctors are NOT. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't lived it. If you suspect you have lyme but your MD told you no b/c of a blood test you should know that there is no definitive blood test for lyme... symptoms are the most important in diagnosis. Only 50% of people with diagnosed lyme ever even recall a tick bite or a rash. It is NOT something you would notice... it is smaller than the dot on this page in it's most infectious stage. I felt compelled to join the others who have shared their experience in hopes that someone may recognize themselves in lyme symptoms and stories posted... and get help. That's all.

I'm just so sick and tired of living like this and I have done SO much to try to feel better, I've tried everything I can think of...
