    I’m also a Lyme Warrior. I was misdiagnosed for 12yrs & finally found out all my ailments were because of Lyme Disease. I kept going to my Dr. Complaining of fatigue & chronic pain & of course they chalked it up to Fibromyalgia , Chronic Fatigue & Arthritis. I’m now very sick because it took so long to properly diagnose it. This disease is debilitating & can be deadly. When left untreated, it attacks the central nervous system, your joints, connective tissues, muscles & especially the brain. It’s been a living nightmare. There are so many of us out there suffering with this & can’t get the help we need in this country. The Canadian Medical Assc. Should be ashamed of themselves because they’ve really dropped the ball on this one.

    I’m sorry to hear of all your struggles and I’m sure terrible frustration . I also struggle with many symptoms of Lymes but Dr’s are not able to diagnose me only saying fibro myalgia or depression? My symptoms are getting worse especially with cognitive and very low blood pressure. I would like to ask you how we’re you finally diagnosed? With a definite diagnosis of Lymes disease.
