Besides CFIDS/FMS diagnosis last year, additional autoimmune related syndromes keep getting added to my list. I'm on yet another round of doctor visits to explain my dizziness (abnormal VNG, so now an MRI) and insane rashes (skin biopsy), my meds just got changed around yet again and am frustrated. I had Stage 3 Lyme back in 1991. I was severely ill when I was finally diagnosed. I had the amnesia, hallucinations, vertigo, strange sensations, lyme migranes, pain, fatigue, palpitations, insomnia, nasuae, etc, etc, etc. I went on 4 or 6 weeks of Rosephin, then 2 abx at a time for the next 16-24 months (can't remember now, but over a year). I was a teenager still and in college by the end of my treatment, so I know I didn't take my abx like I should have. So let's say, I got by ok, just in more pain than others and hypersensive to everything. I've had mono, walking pnuemonia, chronic bronchitis, strange allergic reactions, etc since then. Always maxing out on my sick days, but seem to do the impossible amount of work and dance every other day. After many years of inquiry (why am I so tired? always sick? i'm not quite right...), I couldn't ush myself any longer and crashed. Then finally a dx of CFIDS/FM last summer. I have been on 2 rounds of doxy (1 month each) in the past 6 months, both times I herxed then felt really good afterwards. I mean, really good: I am back to spinning classes which I haven't done in 2 years (when vertigo is under control). I slowly decline after I go off. As I am approaching my MRI apt and thinking about the doxy, I'm begining to think maybe chronic lyme is the culprit here all along. Sorry for the long background! Essentially, my questions are: Anyone similar to me? How did you get a dx of Chronic Lyme Disease? What tests did they do? How are they treating your CLD? Is it the same doc that treated your initial infection? How are you doing? I've been searching the web, but my brain fog is too fierce (thank you vertigo!) to put much sense to it right now... Many thanks for your generous advice! Again, sorry for the long post!
