HI, I have had progressive symptoms for 4 years now and was tested for lymes and co infections last jan i had a possitive result for co infection Anaplasma and today 12 mths after that result finaly got the diagnosis and antibiotic treatment. for everyone who has had dismissive doctors who wont even acknowledge a possitive result dont give up. I have seen every specialist possible from nuero to endocrine at 5 hospitals non could give me a reason for my symptoms they all ignored the possitive anaplasma. Manchester ID ignored the result and symptoms and discharged me sheffield ID wouldnt even see me. I begged my GP for a referal to liverpool ID and they finaly agreed thankfully. over the past 4 years ive been told me it was fibromyalgia, CFS/ME,depression,stress and anxiety they had me even douting my own sanity! 1 GP even said all weve ever found is "that funny bug" this was the co infection. im not 100% sure what anaplasma is and if it is a reason for all my symptoms mainly neuro and possibly an autoimmune problem but at least i feel now that i have a name for what wrong. I got alot of help from my local MP and the PALS service at my local hospital who pushed me not to give up looking for an answer. I would urgh everyone to keep going and even when your faced with ignorance and feel like your going to the doctors saying the same thing over and over again and being a nuisence keep in your mind that one day the right doctor will listen
