Lyme Disease

Recommended Posts

maybe i am just grasping at straws here, but i am feeling so desparate and helpless as i watch my boys (and myself) struggle with physical and mental problems for no apparent reason.

Chrissy,

I dont think you're grasping at straws with this. I've read that *anyone* having unexplained or bizarre symptoms should be tested for Lyme. As Bev posted....Lyme is known as the "great imitator"....it can mimick nearly all diseases.

I would definately pursue testing....not just for you but all symptomatic family members. Hopefully the next Dr. will be willing to *listen* unlike the neurologist you saw.

It would be good for you to get this ruled in or out.

Best wishes. :)

if my insurance doesn't cover the tests-----about how much could i expect to pay?

The two Western Blots (IgG and IgM) were $190.

On top of that I had to pay for the doctor visit...most lyme doctors don't take insurance...but my insurance company did reimburse 70% of that as well.

I still find this soooo odd...my insurance reimbursed me for the entire $190! I hope they don't come looking for that later. :P
