They say forwarned is forearmed. I am thinking of asking my doctor for this test, however, I am preparing myself for if he says no. Is there anyone out there, who has been tested privately, and how much it costs to have it done please. I coule be a prime candidate for Lyme, been to many countries, in contact with many animals,and done a great deal of camping since a child. Would be nice to get a true diagnosis, you still need to know for certain don't you, even if you know there may not be a cure, it is human curiosity. Thank for listening fibro hugs julie.
