I am having a difficult time. I tested for lyme and was positive for ehrlichiosis which is passed by a tick bite. This I had in 2011. I have had 6 and a half years with this as well as typhus. I did private bloodtests from a UK lab. I am in pain to arms, side of ribs, wrists and hands. Prior to my private bloods I had an ACE sarcoidosis which was high. Thing is ehrlichiosis is an exact duplicate of sarcoidosis especially with lung involvement but one is treated by steroid and one with antibiotic. Doxycycline really helps and I am clear for a couple of months. Infectious diseases seem to be jumping on sarcoid rather than a lyme co infection. I am beginning to lose faith in anything I hear. I have a fight on my hands to get the right treatment for the right diagnosis. Ehrlichiosis can affect bone marrow and is infectious has anyone had a problem with bone marrow with sarcoidosis? I feel as though these two diseases are the same.
