Default Re: Lymes disease

Thanks for the response! I have been having swelling when I get up in the morning and through out the day and sometimes my joints are sore and I am tired all of the time. My arms are always falling asleep at night so needless to say I sleep horrible. Occasionally I get a pinching feeling in my left arm. Lupus runs in my family thats why I really wanted the testing. The results from Lupus came back negative so I am glad about that.

I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old just want to make sure I am healthy for them. My doctor put me on antibotics for 14 days, I guess I will have to wait to see how I am feeling after to see if I need more testing, I was a little caught off gaurd with the Lymes results. I never knew I was at risk for it. I live in Maryland but not really near alot of woods or grassy areas.

My next questions is what is ALS? I have never heard of it. I was just looking for info on Lymes and all of this came up, am I at risk for it?
