Mon, Jun 10 1:48pm · Undiagnosed auto immune disease in Autoimmune Diseases

The symptoms that you describe sound so much like what my daughter and I have experienced. We were tested for Lyme Disease with a test from the CDC…the usual one used in hospitals and clinics. We tested negative for Lyme. Then…we went to a Functional Integrative Medical Doctor and she used a test for Lyme called ISAGENIX. Both of us tested positive on several strains of Lyme. We learned that antibiotics actually make Lyme worse before it gets better, but antibiotics are THE treatment needed. There are actually Lyme Literate doctors scattered throughout the country. There is one in Mankato, MN and another in Columbia, MO. It would DEFINITELY be worth your time and money to get a consult with one of these doctors. They alternate antibiotics and use tons of supplements…and finally, you will get your health and your life back. There are Facebook pages dedicated to this as well since Lyme patients have so many struggles and they need to collaborate for answers. I feel VERY strongly that this is what you are dealing with since you have all of the symptoms. Best wishes….

Where are the Integrative Pain Specialists? Does Mayo employ them in their Pain Department?

I have also had some wonderful massage therapists who are trained in cranial sacral release.

I have struggled a lot with restless legs and overall jitters at night. I use tonic water for the quinine….it helps. But I also put two tablets of AlkaSeltzerGold (must be the Gold!) into a glass of water and drink it. The results are oddly amazing. Amazon sells the AlkaSeltzerGold….I buy it by the carton! Try it…you will be so glad you did! Best wishes!

Just two quick ideas….I have some good results with 1) Alka Seltzer Gold – available from Amazon – it resets the pH level in the body; and 2) Tonic water with quinine to help the restless legs. I like to add a little fruit juice to sweeten the sour taste. Both of these seem to help with the shakey quivers that I get due to RD and CRPS. Best wishes…

This is great news to hear! So often, I think that the people who have had successful surgeries move on and enjoy life…and only those still in pain remain on the social media pages telling about their unsuccessful surgeries. You have given many of us encouragement today, John Broward! Best wishes!

Hi, Gailb! Thank you so much for your encouragement and for sharing your experience with me. I have looked into ART before and it seems to be very similar to Rolfing, also called Structural Body Integration – both of which have been extremely helpful for me. The sessions are often very painful and the next day, I have wondered why I was doing that to my body! However, a second day after, I could really feel a positive difference. It was very worth it and I continue to do those stretching exercises at home too. Thanks again fr sharing your story! Best wishes! Vickie
