Because the medical doctors have failed me for over 20 years.
I have been
- treated like a drug addict,
- lied to,
- told I can’t be a patient anymore because I could not drive an hour to my appointment with a level 8 migraine and throwing up,
- told I was just too stressed and that’s why I had debilitating symptoms,
- told I need psychiatric medications when I was debilitated in pain, and
- misdiagnosed for 20 years!
WAKE UP MEDICAL DOCTORS!!!
There is a cause to all symptoms!
YOU ARE NOT EDUCATED IN LYME DISEASE!
You are not trained to heal any chronic illness!
You are only trained to give a label to symptoms and give pills to manage them. The label is not a true diagnosis. Determining the cause it the true diagnosis.
Medical doctors are taught false information about Lyme Disease and Co-infections and that needs to change.
All physicians need to stop dismissing Lyme as a possible diagnosis. The unreliable CDC recently up there estimate from 30,000 new cases a year to 300,000. However, because it is misdiagnosed it has been estimated that the number is closer to 2,000,000 new cases each year based on the number of misdiagnosed and undiagnosed patients.
LYME IS THE NEW AIDS
It does not matter
- that a person does not remember getting bit by a tick
- if they did not get a bulls-eye rash
- that the test you did came back negative
- that they live in California or any state for that matter
If you thought your patient had a heart or nerve problem you would send them to that particular specialist. So, please send patients to a Lyme specialist instead of telling them they need to see a psychiatrist. And stop giving everyone a Fibromyalgia diagnosis because there is a CAUSE to their pain.
Lyme is extremely EASY to get
extremely difficult treat once it becomes chronic.
There was only 1 doctor in 20 years that actually said I don’t know what is wrong but I’m going to try and figure it out. That doctor didn’t just give me a diagnosis and say goodbye. That doctor believed my pain and debilitating symptoms.
You may not think you do not have Lyme but you have a high probability of having it if you suffer from chronic migraine or have any mental health issues.
There is a cause to your symptoms!
The “headache” specialists failed me for 20 years. They NEVER tried to figure out the CAUSE. They would just say “I don’t know why you have a migraine everyday” or that migraine is hereditary. I went to “top” headache doctors and they are clueless. They only give pills to abort a migraine or pills to take daily to prevent them. I believed them! I was clueless and naive myself. I was taught to trust medical doctors. I was wrong to trust them and I spent 20 years suffering for no reason at all.
I cured my daily migraine of 20 years!
Lyme testing is inaccurate the only doctor that can rule it out is a Lyme Literate MD.
There are many viral and bacterial infections that do cause migraines and any mental health disorders. So ask why you have these symptoms and if they don’t have an answer see a different doctor.
****You will not get it until you get it****
