Lyme testing+diagnosis

Posted , 2 users are following.

Had a rash.. suddenly have been feeling ill for two whole months.. symptoms Include: severe headaches, fatigue, eye floaters, hand tremors, tingling all over body, jaw pain, joint pains, heavy chest feeling, brain fog. took an ELISA for Lyme and tested positive.. they said I have to take one more to confirm Lyme? I’m awfully afraid.. I don’t know what expect? Does this sound like Lyme... I’m terrified of getting a negative and not be able to be treated. I’m so scared to be like this forever. I got bit two months ago.

    Those do sound like Lyme symptoms or CIRS symptoms(which can be triggered by Lyme). They can treat you even if it comes back negative as the Lyme tests are not the most reliable.  Good Luck!
