Test results came back CDC positive for Lyme.
And yes, I am definitely keeping both doctors =)

Keep both docs! Use the one for the Lyme and the other for everything else!

Update:
I had my appointment!

The physician believes is is Lyme as well. He had me take about 10 tests (5 od them were take home: breath/Upper gastric, saliva, blood, stool...) to confirm. Perhaps this Western Blot by Igenix will finally be accurate, who knows?

He also has me on the GAPS diet to help heal my digestion and gut. And a ton of other homework to read/buy/get/protocols to start (Amino Acid Neurotransmitters).....

WHEW. Brain on overload. I just want to sleep now.

I really liked the Physician, he was professional, thorough, warm and kind and very smart. But I am struggling with letting go of my other physician (who is 2 miles from me) to jump in the boat with this new Lyme literate doctor who is 90 minutes away... I WILL do it, but I am definitely struggling. Maybe this is the ups and downs of "doctor hopping" .... I've done a lot of that.

Well ladies, thanks for letting me gab, if nothing else, that helps. Now! Onto this homework stuff. =)

Thank you ladies! Sorry for the delay in replying, all my spark mailer updates were going to my spam folder =(.

I was tested with autonomic resonance testing (ART, developed by Dr. Deitrich Klinghardt I believe) and was testing positive for the borrelia bacteria. I'm not showing up positive for co-infections (yet, I think I have them but haven't built up the antibodies to show it yet) I am glad to know, it takes pressure off my big appt in September if my husband and I can process and have time to think about this before the appt.

Thank you all for your encouragement and checking on me, I really appreciate it.

I've been in treatment for Lyme for the last year or so. Once you get into it and you want someone to talk to, get advice from or just to commiserate with, don't hesitate to contact me. Lyme can be very overwhelming, but you don't have to do it alone, and you're not alone!

That is very helpful, thank you Nancy.

I will certainly try and do that. I have been working on my personal medical history this last month, just trying to get stuff chronological. I live on a farm and my family went camping all the time, all over Oregon and Washington and we've been in many other states. I had so many bug or spider bites as a kid that my legs just always had bites.

I'll also do the list of supplements and treatments.

I had a Western Blot taken several years ago, my doctor at the time said it was negative so I never got to see the actual numbers.

Hi:

I have Chronic Neurological Lyme Disease. Let the doctor know of any exposure you may have had to tacks, biting flies or other insects, mosqitoes, etc.. Also, any history of hiking or camping, etc..

I made a timeline of my symptoms and when they started and also any meds/supplements I am on.

Lyme is supposed to be primarily a clinical diagnosis but he can run a Western Blot test thru Igenix Lab.

Please feel free to message me with any questions.
Hugs
Nancy

That's a main part of this first appointment. I'll see a highly recommended Lyme Literate physician so that I can trust him with whether he says yes it is or isn't Lyme...

Hi there! Do you already have a diagnosis? That's first. Then ask about treatments, prognosis, etc. good luck!

I have scheduled my first appointment with a Lyme physician. He's also an ND, MD, and MSOS (oriental medicine). He has a waitlist of almost 3 months. My question, how can I prepare myself to make the most of this first visit? What would you have wanted to know or be prepared for at your first visit?

I am currently on an MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution) protocol, gluten free, refined sugar and flour free, taking supplements to help my adrenals, pancreas, liver, and detox organs (under my acupuncturist/MSOS)...

any and all information is helpful. Physical, emotional, financial... anything, really. My husband and I are trying to learn as much as we can so that it's not as overwhelming all at once. Hah, even though I know it will be ;)
