I am new to this group. I have been trying to get a diagnosis for Lyme Disease for the last six months from my doctors in my area. Since I live in the desert they say there is no way I could have it! Yet all the research I have done says you could have been infecteded many years ago and because of stress or other things it can finally apperer. It started six months ago with a sever headache then I slept for 36 of 48 hours. Had the stiff neck, joint pain, fatigue and all of the rest of the symptoms. One last symptom that was strange that I just finally found in an on line paper that said one of th symptoms was Jaw Pain or toothaches that are not related to actual tooth decay or infection. I just had a total X-Ray done by my dentist two weeks ago and there is nothing there!
I guess waht I am asking is for Help! My medical provider in my area has done every test they can on every part of my body! For thousands of Dollars! And have yet to find anything!They refuse to even consider Lyme Disease or West Nile. Yes I did have the Blood test, but it was after I had been on to regimines of Dococyclines.
Could someone please give me some help!
Friends in other states can't believe the medical care I have gotten!!
