Lyme Disease Support Group

Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the Northern Hemisphere. It is now one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the U.S. Lyme disease is caused by infection with the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, and is primarily transmitted to humans as well as dogs, horses and other domesticated animals by the bite of infected ticks.

    Hey everybody! I was diagnosed with lyme disease about 3 months ago. We thought my leg was broken (didnt know how i did it) & went to urgent care. The doctor diagnosed me with lyme disease but also said that we cant rely on the results alone because they can be misleading. I also had other symptoms that the doctor didnt even know about until after he diagnosed me such as feeling sick, extremely...

    I just started treatment for Lyme. Going to a LLMD and doing antibiotics and herbal treatment. A week in I'm having a herx reaction and I am very short tempered and easily frustrated. With joint pain numb hands and feet and muscle twitches. I'm assuming other people have felt like this. I was told it would be like this but I don't think I really believed it.

    Hi everyone.Today I received some lab results back saying it is likely that I have Lyme Disease.  I'm feeling so many things right now and am not sure where to turn.First, I'm very confused.  How could I have gotten Lyme?  I don't hike in the woods or in tall grass.  I have sat on mowed grass in a park but I thought that was safe?  Does Lyme ever go away?  It seems to be hard to get a clear...

    hello wonderful peoplei was bit by a tick and diagnosed by site of the ringed bite about a year ago. I thought since I was treated with antibiotics right away it wouldn't be an issue. Blood test at that time came back negative. I went to a naturopath after feeling some joint pain some months later who tested me and found that I had in fact built the antibodies for Lyme though my infection wasn't...

    Pushed Antibiotics too hard?

    I'm new to this group, I was diagnosed with lymes around two years ago, when I started college. Due to school work I've always been bad about compliance as stress compounding with herx related symptoms was tough. Anyway over the past month I was really good about all my antibiotics (doxy, pen) and probiotics. Last wednesday I ended up in the emergancy room with a what they thought was gallbladder...

    Hello! I have just joined this group. This past November I was diagnosed with Rocky mountain spotted fever as well as Lyme. I started treatment right away with my PvP. After the month of high doses of doxycycline I had no improvement and was referred to a Lyme literate doctor who I continue to see. Who then found that I have babesia, M and C pneumoniae, high levels of yeast in my blood stream,...
