Tick Borne Illness with misdiagnosis Lone Star Tick BIte

Posted by @ramseyiiis, Thu, Jul 26 9:53am

Had Lone Star tick on by back for 4 days. Thought I had a boil but wife checked and pulled off tick. Misdiagnosis for 7 months. Had 60 days for different antibiotics. Did have titers 41 and 66 come back reactive. Daily deal with chronic horrific arm pain, swelling of arms, shoulders, knees, ankle. I cant shake hands, wipe anything including my own legs. I get brain fog, headaches and fatigue. Not Lyme since it was a Lone Star tick I am told. I have done numerous 4 day fastings which helped reduce some inflammation but came right back when eating. Can not seem to get relief.

Hello, @ramseyiiis. Thank you for posting and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! I'm so sorry to hear you have been faced with this. How long ago did this happen? Did your physician give you a diagnosis?

What does the 4 days of fasting do?

Initially, tennis elbow/tendenitis in June last year, sent to PT for 2 months, pain got worst and spread up arm. In late Oct Dr did Lyme test. TITER 41 and 66 came back active. Then did 30 days antibiotics. 4 day fasting seems to help reset autoimmune system (swelling).

Going to neurologist and infectious disease. PRAYING they van figure out this horrific swelling in arms, shoulder, head and knee which is causing chronic pain. Have read Vitamin C protocol might help kill borrelia spirochite bacteria too plus infrared sauna sessions for detox.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I have late stage lyme with multiple co infections including mycoplasma, barts, and EBV. Now newly diagnosed high mold toxicity. Those are all part of lyme protocol you are doing but you need a LLMD. My protocol includes those plus about 30 more 3x a day. Dr. Rawls, Google him, read his book. His protocol has saved lives including his own. Best of luck.

Thanks for sharing. Do have Dr Rawl's book Suffered Long enough. I am taking many herbals and adding a vitamin c protocol too. Months of antibiotics have not helped and prednisone causes worst swelling. Prayers continue as well. Pray government would fund more timely research.
