What the heck

I don't know where everyone has gone but I miss the useful info. Thanks to the few who are still posting info and such. I still rely on posts for help with this rotten disease. I can't find any forums which aren't being overrun with arguing and hostility. Now we have new players here who have come o...

Re: Raising Awareness about Lyme Disease

Good for you mini!! I would like to help with something like that around here without getting mixed up in the bs that is out there. People still say " Oh my so and so had lyme and they are fine- Don't know why doxy isn't helping YOU" People need to get it! Hope you can rest up now that it's done. Go...

Re: this got to me!!!!

I wasn't suggesting that lyme was the cause of death . Just to prove that the bacteria are in fact there. I am still wasting my time and my life trying to get a pos test because not enough bands are present to get any further with treatment with insurance. I suppose I could just stay on pain meds fo...

Re: this got to me!!!!

That really is enough to make a person cry. I have told by husband over and over that I want a ME to tear me apart and prove the bastard spiros are there and then send a letter to every doc who suggested I was nuts and "negative tests are negative, it must be something else. I can't understand why n...

Re: My feet hurt!!!

Thanks ladies. I knew you'd come through. I was tested for co-infections with Quest and it was neg. Doc said those tests were reliable unlike lyme tests. Don't know if that's true or not. I haven't been wearing sup-hose lately but i don't work much anymore either. I prefer to go barefoot to be hones...

My feet hurt!!!

Hi all I know I've read about foot pain here before and I have a question. My feet are killing me. I have had achy feet for years from standing but this is different. I can hardly put any weight on them at all. I was wondering what gout feels like or if it could be a lyme or bart symptom. Anything h...

Re: droopy eyelid

Hey kel I know nothing of plaquenil but bell's palsy and I are aquaintances. For me it started with watering eye and then tingling sensation. My eye wouldn't blink first then the droopy eyelid then tingling mouth and finally droopy mouth(lip). Hopefully that is not what it is cause it's not fun. It ...

Re: message from ITSY!!!!!

Itsy I wish you the best of luck with job-hunting. Maybe this will
be a good opportunity. You could always write a book :D .
Good luck to you and keep in touch. Or I could try to meet you

high school.

Re: Some of the complaints about LNE are true

I don't know exactly where I fit in on the forum. I am technically still new to this and in the year since I've been gleaning info I am more confused than ever. I still cannot get satisfaction from a doc. I still don't understand the disease entirely and I can't wrap my head around some of the thing...
