Hello, all Smile

I'm Kimmie and I live in the general Dallas area.

I've been sick with Lyme Disease for approx 15 years, finally tested and confirmed independently through iGenex labs about a year ago.

Finally have insurance after being without for a few years, and would really really like to get my health back.

Any help or suggestions would be so very appreciated!

Please feel free to PM me with any details Smile

Thanks!!

Hi Kimmie, welcome to the group!Smile

I'm happy to hear that you were finally diagnosed correctly..are you going through treatment for it, or were you waiting for that insurance?

Did they test you for any co-infections? What symptoms are you having at this point?

If you don't already have a llmd and need one, please post in the Doctor Request forum on here, one of us will find you there and help you.

Also, use this site for any research and information that you need. We have a lot of valuable information on here..

Blessings to you Kimmie.

peace-kim

Betty's suggested posting guidelines:

Many of members have neuro lyme, and it is hard to read long solid block text and be able to comprehend; example, me, 42 yrs. neuro chronic lyme, so we are UNABLE to comprehend and read. Thank you for helping us help YOU Wink

please post in short paragraphs like you see below or look at a few other posts, but we neuro folks need them short.

1-2 sentences MAX per paragraph and hit ENTER TWICE to doublespace between each paragraph. We've lost our comprehension skills to read solid block text.

we neuros lose our train of thought if the sentence is broken up in the middle; so please keep an ENTIRE sentence together as ONE. hugs

For easier reading, please edit your post. You can break up your longer paragraphs into smaller paragraphs. Please hit ENTER key twice after each paragraph.

Go to left hand corner; click edit send. Then go to bottom and click SUBSCRIBE TO THIS DISCUSSION.

Thank you for posting in a manner that makes it easier for all to read and help others.

Thank you, Kim Smile

Yes, I was waiting for insurance-I consulted with a Dr/naturopath last year, but could not afford his treatments since there was no insurance option through his office...

I have not been tested for any co-infections at this point. I started getting sick when I was 15-counseling at a summer camp in the mountains of North Carolina. I've been through countless Dr's and tests-you know the drill-by the time I was a Sr in high school they told me it was all in my head etc etc.

My symptoms right now are way less severe than they used to be, but at the moment I experience:

Gastric distress from top to bottom

Fatigue (a lot)

Painful joints

Muscle soreness/weakness

Headaches

Foggy brain sometimes

Strange eye-sight issues

Hypoglycemia

Feminine issues (not sure if they're related to Lyme's, but they're there)

I have struggled with severe depression/self harm/and anorexia (not sure if it's related)

Anyway, that's an abbreviated run-down of my situation. Thanks so much for your reply-I will find the Dr request forum and repost there Smile

Thank you, Betty!

I will try to gather all of my testing information and repost when I figure it all out...

I was tested through iGenex labs with the western blot and all that. I do need to find my results. I have moved a lot in the last year, so they are buried somewhere in my file boxes. I'll get that info to you ASAP.

Thank you for your input! I will try to get my post together.

Do I need to edit anything out of my post?

I want to make sure I post according to the rules Smile

Thanks,

Kimmie
