Lyme Disease
0 Replies
Robin H - August 10

I have done a search and see that some have been tested for Lyme disease along with a bunch of other disorders that have similar symptoms to fibro in order to rule these other conditions out.

I don't think my doctor tested me for Lyme. Is it common to be tested for it?

The reason I ask is because I have an acquaintance who suffers from Lyme. She is suspicious that what I have is Lyme and not Fibro and she thinks that many people have Lyme Disease, but don't have any or all the symptoms and just don't know it. Hers is debilitating. She has temporarily lost vision in an eye, she is almost crippled. She passed it on in-utero to 2 of her 3 kids before she knew she had it. Her husband has tested positive as well. They are both originally from Minnesota. My question is, is Lyme commonly tested in Fibromyalgia screening and what type of test is given. If I wasn't tested, what type doctor do I go to? I was seeing a rhumatologist (my spelling stinks).
