I have to ask...you still think "wait and see" was the best approach?

Please say more about your comment "what I have to do".

Did you test positive? Did treatment (when? back then?) resolve your symptoms? What treatment and for how long?

Of course, you don't have to answer.

In our situation, it took two years trying to find a diagnosis, then months studying Lyme and pursuing treatment. Oral antibiotics failed. We found a cutting-edge homeopathic doctor - and spouse has been healthy for nine years, for which we are grateful.

And one correction - the author of "Cure Unknown" is Pamela Weintraub. This book confirmed for us that pain on the soles of the feet is a symptom of the co-infection Bartonella.

REW, I do not have any regrets about waiting. That's not the way I am. I said I would see a doc if there was a return of symptoms. Things quieted.

Then, in August 2011, my dog and I were out playing in the rural place where I have a tiny cabin (2nd home) in VT. We run and play about one third of the day. In the midst of running, he sat down. I knew that was odd. I took him to the vet. Two tests confirmed lyme, which the vet already thought without the tests. VERY sore back, she told me.

It was an important step to remind myself to look into my own health, which has been generally excellent. Unlike many terribly bad stories about lyme and its coinfections, I do not have a hard time.

So, I explored my local area in east central NY, and I joined a yahoo group for NYers with lyme. There, I asked a lot of questions and met a lot of fine people. I got a lot of info about docs there. I contacted one.

Spncity, I might follow up more later when I see what works and have something more definite to say. It's too early. Your story about the time it takes is so common. That sucks.

I am very glad, looking back, that I started this thread when I did. It gave me useful info for the doc. See, I had shortened the time frame in my memory, thinking it was two and a half years of issues, but it's closer to 5. It was right here on the web in these forums for me to check.

That's it for now. I know I am lucky.

Kate
