lyme disease, or cancer
i have had multiple, painfull symptoms for almost 3 years now. have been to what i'm told are the best hospitals availiable ? robert wood johnson , ctca , john hopkins ,  and many specialists. i was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma about 2 years ago, but am told that it is not causing any of my symptoms.(worst are many different abdominal pains) also , joint pain, and classic lyme symptoms, but the lyme specialists don't think my problems are lyme related? my oncologist just prescribes pain pills that don't help much?  does anyone know of a doctor that specializes in diagnosing the undiagnosable. thanks very much, dan

Dan,
It's possible that you may have Lyme Disease, if you have alot of the symptoms.

List of Lyme symptoms:

When To Suspect Lyme Disease
http://cassia.org/essay.htm


The testing for Lyme is not very accurate.
Because of this, physicians should make the diagnosis based on the patient's symptoms.
This is known as a "clinical diagnosis."

Most physicians are not experienced enough to make a clinical diagnosis of Lyme.
They order the tests, and when they come up negative, tell the patient that he doesn't have Lyme.

If you would like to discuss your symptoms with others who have the same problems, you can post a query on the medical questions forum at LymeNet.org.
http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php

The experienced Lyme patients there can advise you about finding a doctor who can diagnose Lyme, if you have it.

I hope this helps.
Carol
