I saw a post on the CFS board about fevers in Lyme patients and am confused (what else is new?) I have been diagnosed with CFS but am now considering the fact that I may have Lyme disease. In March, I had the "flu" as diagnosed by my PCP. I could not move off of the couch, could not stand up. While I have CFS, I am not that bad everyday. This was like nothing I've ever had in my life. But...I did not have a fever. I *thought* with the flu you had to have a fever. But my body never got the whole fever thing, if it did, it was very very mild. I believe it was the flu because a few days into it my 8 year old was struck down with this sickness, but he had a fever for 5-6 days straight, and he never left the couch either. We were a freak show actually, he was on one couch, I was on the other -- and my four year old was trashing the house. Anyway...would this jive with Lyme, the fact that even with the flu for two weeks straight, I wouldn't get a fever? Is this another clue into the fact that I could have Lyme? I'm trying to piece it all together so I can get my life back over here. Thanks so much!
