what do i do now - possitive result 2 referals and infectious diseases wont even see me

Posted , 7 users are following.

finaly after 3 years of unexplained progressive symptoms and lost blood test i got a positive result for lymes co-infection ( anaplasma) although basic lymes test was negative. my GP sent a very good referal letter with all my symptoms plus a supporting letter from lymes disease action who i had emailed many times and knew the history and symptoms which they included. the 1st letter from manchester infectious diseases came back saying i did not have lymes and should be seen by a cronic fatigue clinic! then the second letter has just come back from sheffield saying they strongly advice my GP refers me to ither manchester,blackpool or liverpool so i dont have to travel so far to sheffield my GP has read this as there is no point in taking this any further as manchester have already dismissed it. what on earth should i do now i just need to know have i got lymes or not and want to at least been seen before its ruled out but think my doctor has had enough of refering me. any ideas please

    Does Lyme disease giv panic attacks? I have all the symptoms here, blurred vision, tingling in hand, stiffed neck, muscle pain, floaters (lots of them but retina is fine), very high inflammatory rate. Just asking to find out.
