Lyme Disease Physician
Being diagnosed for lyme disease by a physician is hard to figure out if it’s really lyme or the other 300 diseases it mimics. You can get bit by a tick that can give you lyme disease just about anywhere in the US, even for a [post_name].
The bacterium that breeds in the body of ticks causes Lyme disease. This was how I got this disease. However, there is an increase in discussion amongst scientists, as to whether Lyme disease is genetic or not. Recently, they have found a genetic factor that increases the chances of people suffering from chronic arthritis. This can change the disease from an almost unnoticeable ailment to an affliction that may last for many years.
This form of arthritis develops in only, one in ten people amongst whom the disease is untreated. All of them have an inherited factor, a component on the surface of the white blood cells. This chronic arthritis usually contains the same antibiotics that cure arthritis in its initial stage. Often, these drugs are ineffective in their chronic phases.
Recently, scientists and researchers have reported these findings at Stockholm on the Fourth International Meeting on Lyme disease. Researchers are carrying out more studies on the nature of the disease. Until that period, it is important for people who suffer from Lyme disease to have early treatment and undertake preventive measures.
In short, prevention and early detection is the best way to treat this disease.
Test for Lyme Disease
Please take the time to read this 15 minute blog. It tells of how someone beat Lyme Disease and Q-fever, both contracted from the same tick bite, but Q-fever being 10 time worse than Lyme Disease. He tells of how doctors were not able to cure him and at his last hope found several natural foods that turned his health around within a week. On deaths door to a full recovery. Check out the simple ways he cured lyme disease with organic foods.
The mysteries of Lyme disease and its various maladies is allusive and difficult to diagnose. Because Lyme disease can manifest itself different in each person it infects, there is no hard and fast rule for a set of symptoms being cause for a blood test.
In fact, Lyme disease throws out the rule book for modern medicine. There is only one thing for certain - that nothing is certain. Each person is affected uniquely by the illness and the treatment is specific to each patient as well.
That being said, there is one thing I know, you do not have to have a bulls eye rash, a visible tick bite or flu like symptoms to have Lyme disease. It can be passed to children in the womb and they are researching whether it is sexually transmitted.
Lyme disease can also "co-infect" the patient with other tick borne illnesses simultaneously making the symptoms even more varied and wide.
First, if you are chasing a mystery illness that seems to continue progressing in intensity and increasing in variety of symptoms as doctors try to treat it, that is a strong indicator for Lyme.
Second, if you are a relatively healthy person but seem to continue getting diagnosis for autoimmune disorders - even just one, could also be indicative of Lyme.
Third, multiple unrelated symptoms that occur simultaneouly can point to Lyme. Doctors would tell me my list of indicators were "impossible" to happen concurrently and from one cause, but they were. Keep after it and trust your body and your instincts.
Finally, take your body temperature every morning when you wake up for a week. Low body temperature is a huge indicator of a disease environment in your body, especially pathogenic. Lyme thrives in a low temperature body.
The following chart contains a symptom list for Lyme and its co-infections. The first time I read through it, I was shocked by the list and that it could all be caused by Lyme disease. We are all grossly uneducated about this disease and what it is capable of and what it takes to recover.
