Default re: Two rashes - Lyme Testing

Glen,

That sort of test would be more useful and cheaper than the current test we have here in Canada.....

Kelly,

I was told by the ID dr that I do have lyme.... All of my symptoms that didn't quite match up with MS, ALS are in fact fairly common Lyme.... And some are particularly exclusive to Lyme....

He started me on oral ABX and indicated that I will probably need to do a round of IV soon. I think that before you start the IV, you technically need to have a positive test here in Canada.... But then he said that I have ECM rashes, and only Lyme can cause that... Supposedly a ECM rash is more definitive than any blood test can be.

As far as progress goes, ABX have made me worse.... I started to nosedive about 1 week after I started.... I'm basically house bound.... Just hoping I start to feel better soon....
