I was just diagnosed with Lyme disease, but do not know when I was exposed. I only had two bands they read positive on the Western blot assay. I went in due to extreme fatigue & my psychiatrist’s suggestion that I investigate the possibility of chronic fatigue syndrome. Before I got my test reults back, I started having joint pain & shooting pains in my legs & now my neck hurts & I’ve had a headache for 3 days. How do I know what is caused by Lyme disease vs. Something else like allergies or stress? When will I know the antibiotics ate working? Do the symptoms get worse over time or do they just kind of hit at once & linger? I have been struggling with severe short term memory loss. How do I know whether I have early or late stage Lyme disease?
