Hi. Has anyone had a nerve conduction test relating to Lyme's, if so what was your outcome. The neurologist did a reflex test and he said I was sluggish so has sent for a nerve test. If it comes back negative apparently my gp needs to then refer me to a rheumatologist. The neurologist and gp are adamant its not Lyme's and have said its CFC but I'm not convinced. Just feel like I'm being passed around as no one knows the answer. I had a bite early last year which looked like a ciggarette burn, I didn't think anything of it until about a month later when I became really Ill and have been ever since. Doctors say your depressed but then I explain living like this would make any one feel depressed, feeling alone because you feel no one believes you so you don't have support from friends, and no close family. I try and push myself to lead a normal life but that gives people the impression I must be OK but I'm far from it, its a case of having to as its just me and my 2 kids with no one around to help. My kids are a great help around the house which is a blessing, mashing the potato as my arms feel like they will drop off when I attempt it. If I could afford it I'd like to be tested again privately but even that wouldn't lead to treatment on the NHS. Needs to be a lot more awareness here then maybe we could get some hope and peace of mind. Xx
