Rheumatologist, Lymes Disease and Fibromyalgia…

I asked about the possibility of a misdiagnosis of Fibromyalgia rather than Lymes Disease and he says I probably have both as many a case of Fibro is caused by Lymes Disease. He gave me a script so I can be retested, but he still feels I have Fibro especially too since I still have the target/trigger points. Should know something in a couple of weeks.

The treatment for chronic Lymes is IV antibiotics for a good length of time. Though if it is can lessen some of this pain I should be most grateful.

      Thanks will depend on the outcome of the test which I understand has a large amount of false negatives. But it is the only way to go at this point.
