I went to my chiropractor today, she just got back from a two week cruise in Alaska and was a neurologist in her previous life. She said she was thinking of me on her cruise and would like to see old medical records. I was alarmed, long story short, she thinks I have MS. I had to reassure her that it was the barts. As she said I have all the symptoms and I was diagnosed with MS previous to seeing an LLMD, but I was able to teach her something today. She knew about Lyme but nothing about co-infections.
Thanks Jackie. She asked me since so many more people this year have Lyme is it because they are learning more about it and I said I think so because it's not a new thing but more people are aware.
Maybe if more and more people know, they can avoid what most of us have been through, misdiagnosis and painful unnecessary tests.
