So I was bit by a tick back in 2006. i did develop a rash that eventually scarred. I didnt know anything about how bad ticks could be until recently though. Shortly after, I got bit I did get quite sick and was in severe pain. Was pretty much bedrriden. I went to sports medicine and was diagnosed with fibromalgia. For the next 12 years, I have been in alot of pain. I have found that my short term memory is gone and I very recently started having tingling in my fingers abs feet. My father recently mentioned LYME DISEASE to me and wow I have almost all of the sypmtoms. However, when my LYMES test came back it was negative except for the IGG 41 ab. present.
I read that having lymes for a long time it will eventually move ro your tissue and bone so it will not be found in the blood any longer. Is this true? I know you cant believe what you read on the internet but it would make so much sense because I am having alot of random pain in my joints. My pcp just said she was going to continue with muscle relaxers ext. but I really want to know wth is in my body.
So basically, is it possible to test negative for lymes after 12 years and should I try to find a LLMD or a disease doctor. Or is being IGg 41 ab nothing to worry about? I have been sick for so long at this point, I just want to feel better.
