50/50 odds...they're great in Vegas...but not when it comes to your life! That's how effective the blood test is for Lyme disease. Treatment...is just as pathetic. 30 days of doxycycline, and any symptoms beyond that are called residual.
My name is Lori Burnham. I used to be a hard working, multitasking, independent, & motivated individual. I worked hard to go from welfare, to a career in law enforcement. Back in 2005, I started not feeling well...always flu like. Fatigue, muscle weakness, short of breath, intermittent fevers, sweats, brain fog, changing vision, GI problems, and slow healing skin sores. Over the past twelve years, I've seen nineteen doctors, with number twenty scheduled. Four of those doctors were LLMD's. I went through my life savings seeing those guys, but I received a lot of answers, to include patient validation...I have a form of Lyme. They say with active treatment, it will take a month to heal for every year I've been sick. We traced a bad tick bite back to the early 1990's.
With doctor number twenty, evaluation costs are $450 per hour. After that, it becomes $350 per hour. Not only do I still have the above symptoms, I'm getting very forgetful. I'm losing my balance, and falling...I even broke my ankle. I'm having arrhythmia lasting twelve hours long. I'm scared...that I will die before the CDC ever acknowledges and changes its definition and treatment for Lyme disease, and all of its coinfections. So I'm asking your help, so I can be treated by another LLMD...so I can live. I lost my career to Lyme, and having such brain fog inhibits me from even reinventing my life. It's become a very painful existence from day to day. Please help me get my life back...my health back! Thank you.
