I am hoping someone on this website can give me any help and guidance to get a diagnosis and treatment for Lyme disease.
I have been recently Diagnosed with ME/CFS but Im positive Ive had Lyme disease for around 5 years now.
My symptoms are
Severe Migraines (Ive had one now for 5 months!!)
Swelling of the Joints
Muscle Soreness and Fatigue
Anxiety and Depression
I have been repeatedly to the doctors and been given antidepressants, painkillers and anxiety medication.
When I go back and let the doctor know that it isnt working they simply put it down to depression or anxiety and up my medication.
Ive been going on and off for 5 years now and the sysmptoms are not getting any better.
I am considering looking for private help on this and wondered if anyone had any advice or could point me in the right direction. I have seen that the Western Blot test would be my next step but unsure where to get this done.
Mt doctor has sent me to the Hopsital to the infection clinic in relation to my newly diagnosed ME but I have waited 4 months to see them and once I had was informed it would be another 3 months to see the nurse.
Please, any help would be massively apreciated
