Bug Bite? Allergy? What the Heck Is It? — 3 Comments

  1. What happened?

    Diagnosed with everything but Lyme Disease. Multiple rashes, extreme fatigue, eye problems, brain fog, 15 surgeries in an 18 year period. Oxygen Saturations way below normal. Finally a brain rupture in 1999. Ten years after all these other symptoms had started. In 1989 took an engorged tick into a Texas hosp. to be told Lyme did not exist in Texas. After hearing about a man with all my surgeries and symptoms to include a brain rupture I was tested for Lyme and I was positive for two types and Babesia WA1 also. All those wasted years, I had to give up my job as a nurse, stop jogging, no tennis, most of the time in a wheelchair. Looked like ALS.

    If Chronic Fatigue, Gulf War, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Alzeimers were all tested with a qualified Lab I think we know what was causing what. On some autopsies now the plagues are showing Borrelia. The same with MS patients that chose to go on long term antibiotic therapy and see good results coming. Let us all get together and find out what is causing our immune systems to crash. It just may be this Borrelia.

  2. Pam,

    When I was doing Internet research on my illness I found many people with your experience. Sometimes it takes years to get the correct diagnosis. I’m glad you were finally diagnosed correctly.

    Thanks for your concern. I think I’m OK, but as you know only time will tell. If I make it through tonight without having an outbreak that will be two full days without one. My last outbreaks were smaller than before. Although they seemed to be extra itchy to make up for being small. 🙂

    Assuming I am at the end of this medical mystery the diagnosis is a skin infection. I’ll never know how or when I was exposed but that’s what seems to be going on.

    Take care,


  3. hi,
    I had bedbugs, for sure, was allergic to them, reactions persisted even when I got away from them, Turns out I have some kind of blood infection. I was tested for lyme’s but test only came up positive for a couple aspects…. not borrelia but something, has weakened my heart and liver severely..

    I cannot tell everyone how many times I’ve been told by doctors and experts that BB’s don’t transmit disease. If you got a skin infection from them then I understand what your going through. Please make an appeal to your city about this.
