It coulds be Lyme not Fibro???? 10/25/07 06:49 PM THANK YOU to the folks who responded to my question about heart block and Fibro. Those who sent me the info about the relationship between LYME DISEASE and heart block really hit on something! My symptoms (and heartblock) all started in 1983 after a "bad flu". I have always believed that set off fibromyalgia. But, that never explained the cardiac problems of dysrythmia and progressive but mild cardiomyopathy ("of unknown origin"). Armed with the info from here I spoke with my doctor and she has ordered the Lyme tests I have never had. My flu hit before Lyme disease was talked about like now. I don't remember having a rash but I was hiking all the time back then and no one ever thought about it. The local medical librarian found several articles about treating chronic Lyme Disease. Though, even if the tests are positive, successful treatment sounds like a long shot but it is something else to try! Has anyone had treatment for chronic Lyme? Does your doctors think Lyme Disease CAUSES fibro? Whats the treatment protocol for longstanding chronic Lyme? Thanks so much!
