I was at my cardiologists office and I was explaining how I've had auto-immune / fibromyalgia / CFS / Chronic Lyme disease for four years now. She looked at one of the labs from my general doctor and said it looked like it indicated I did have auto-immune disease. I don't remember what the indicator was called but the range for the test was around 300-3500 i believe and my result was around 3000 I think. If I got these numbers right she seemed to think this indicated auto-immune disease.
As a side note I explained that it started in spring 2006. I was take immunotherepy allergy shots, being injected with a serum of everthing I was allergic to to cure spring allergies. About two months into this I got an extreme flu, which then lasted off and on for two months and then I got a puffy face. Months later I started to gain weight very rapidly, then the muscle pain started the following year. You can email me at nexus.lyme at gmail
Also any general advice on this would be helpful. I've just recently started to think of this as auto-immune disease and learned about th1 disease and the marshal protocol (mpkb.org). I'm 4 months into lyme treatment and considering switching to the marshal protocol for th1 inflamitory disease because it makes so much sense biologically.
