? About Lyme disease /fibro

Is it possible to have Lyme disease and docs wouldn't have caught it, or mid-day as fibro? So many symptoms overlap, just curious. Also have hashimoto's & chronic migraine.

Misdiagnosed, not mid-day. Is there an option to edit posts? Lol

I think Lyme & Fibro have similar symptoms. Not sure if there's a test for Lyme

There is a test for Lyme. It is not that expensive. However it is not that great and has a lot of faulse positives what my doc told me. The next test is really expensive and not covered by most insurance. It's more reliable but has some issues.

That's all I know.

Part of treating fibro is ruling out the Lyme' s Disease. The treatments are different. It will be helpful to have Dr. order the test. Refer to Fibro Manual by Dr. Minerva Liptan MD. DR can go to her web site.
