If you want to get tested or re-tested for Lyme disease, you need to have a doctor who will send your blood work to IGeneX laboratory. I highly recommend getting re-tested by this lab and tested for the first time if you never have been. Lyme disease is very commonly misdiagnosed and was even brought up in our latest local elections as a growing issue. Lyme disease can cause arthritis symptoms and needs to be ruled out as a cause of your pain. You will not always have the "bulls eye" rash that you will hear about on websites.
I just wanted to give you all that information before I forgot! I know some of you can't imagine making another doctor's appointment with all of your monthly bloodwork and such, but it really is worth it. I sucked it up and brought a good book and cup of tea and pretended I wasn't there. You can do it!
