Out of the Blue

I want to thank Brian, a user who registered an account here yesterday to suggest I get myself tested for Lyme disease, as the symptoms I describe fit that pretty well. Recalling Hudson the wonder dog's bouts with Lyme remind me that her limping was the first symptom we noticed, so my achy joints fit that aspect of it too well. I'll call the doctor today, and hopefully they can get me in pretty quickly for a blood test and/or examination. This will be unusual for me, as I am not someone who is prone to visiting the doctor when I'm not feeling well. I think the last time I was at the doctor outside of a checkup was when I had knee surgery, and the last time I went to the doctor because I was feeling ill was when I had the chicken pox as a little boy.

There isn't always a visible bite showing. Also the problem with symptoms for Lyme disease are very similar to a lot of other conditions like meningitis - which ticks can also cause, encephalitis, hyperthyroidism - magnesium deficiency, anemia - iron deficiency, B12 deficiency, etc.

However, Lyme disease has been on the rise in NA - the northern part at least - for years now. We actually had warnings from the gubment last year. My bro and I took a road trip down to Long Point last year and they had huge signs up everywhere warning people about the tick problem there. Funny thing is doctors in NA are more aware of things like malaria than they are about lyme.

If you're going to get tested, make sure it's the right test, as they get it wrong a lot of the time. Here's good information from the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation....

Do you give the Gunnar-man a trick treatment each spring? You know the stuff you drop on the back of their neck?
