Q: 

lyme disease false negative? what can we do?

A: Hi, Herschel.... Your story is so sad and, unfortunately, very typical of someone with lyme disease due to the ignorance of the medical community about it. I believe I can offer some helpful suggestions. You are right. CDC standards are too rigid and for this reason, only a small fraction of lyme cases is reported. lyme can totally evade detection in both blood and spinal fluid. Your only recourse is to find a lyme specialist. He/she will treat your wife regardless

It can be anywhere, with most is starts in the peripheral joints. @DarkScribe I know you can take doxicycline when it is a new bite, do you know if you have to take it within a few days? Few Weeks? When is it too late? Have your friend go to a doctor or clinic and get tested! there are many other symptoms and effects. the fact that she has “removed” ticks before may mean that she missed the tiniest.

Q: 

lyme Disease and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

A: Hi, Barbara... the tests for lyme are notorious for being very unreliable so I don"t believe that anyone can say that it is definitively ruled out. Could your CFS be caused by some other type of organism such as Babesiosis or Mycoplasma? Do some Googling on it and see what you think. Perhaps it was a new infection in 6/08 that gave you the positive results and new onset of symptoms. You still could be testing positive because you are still producing antibodies which would cause the positive test result.
