I started posting here in 2002, and this site helped me tremendously. I was already on the best diet, and taking most of the best supplements for my condition, when I found out I actually have lyme disease. Now, I'm getting the prescriptions that I've needed to fight this. I can't access my past posts to see if I posted about this before. Some of us were discussing the possibility of having lyme, and a lot found out they did. Now, I've been in treatment for a little over a year, and I'm getting well! My progress is astounding all my friends, and I'm thrilled! When I visit lyme forums, I see that many who have lyme originally were diagnosed with CFS/ME and FM, as was I. So, I feel it's important information for many who post here. I know that not all who have CFS/ME or FM have lyme, but many do, so I think it makes a lot of sense to look into it. Lyme disease can be cured. The biggest problem is that most doctors don't know how to test for it, the tests are inaccurate, and maybe the biggest problem: the insurance companies own a lot of the medical care business in this country and they don't want a new disease that needs more than 7 minutes of the doctor's time per visit. This message board helped me a lot, and I want to give back. My advice is to learn about lyme disease, it's symptoms, and the political situation surrounding it. It's actually the same with most newly discovered diseases--first denial, then finally funding, and help. The film "Under Our Skin" is hopefully getting thru the denial. But, for now, the ones who really know how to treat lyme are the doctors who have it themselves, or someone they love has it. They belong to a society that exchanges information as they learn--ILADS International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society. They are know as LLMDS, lyme literate doctors in all fields of practice. I'm so glad I found out what was behind the misery I dealt with for 30 years. I hope this information helps those who follow up, and find out they have a treatable disease, like I did.
