OT-Lyme Disease
Today I picked up a copy of Meggy's Lab work. I was looking over the lyme disease scan.

Negative is 0.00-0.90

Equivocal is 0.91-1.09

Meggy's is 0.91

The lab recommended follow up test. This was also my first lab results before my number went up. The pediatrician however is not very concerned, and didn't really wish to pursue further testing or treatment.

I don't agree with the rationale. I suffer from severe daily pain due to lyme disease and know that my pain could have been prevented had someone taken me seriously early on.

My damage from this disease goes as far as my knees being in such horrible condition that both need replacement. I have also been recommended to have the tendon in both my wrist cut because the pressure is so bad it is causing damage.

I just don't understand why we take this sort of chance with a child knowing that they could be cured with antibiotics early on. Needless to say, I have been searching for answers all day. I found on her neurologist website that they treat lyme disease. I think I will be consulting with them.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
Isn't it sad that they are willing to take those chances. I know it's not the same thing but I left my ped bc he was trying to prescribe Maggie meds that she was obviously allergic to.

I guess that's why God gave us mommy's intuition. He knew the docs were not gonna be the best advocates for them :)

u r so right about that. I have pushed to have the lyme testing done on her since I got my diagnosis in I believe August, and every one refused saying it wasn't necessary.

I really pushed the pedi. till she finally agreed to testing to shut Mommie up. Now, she doesn't want to pursue treatment.

I am thankful to be here for Meggy. I hope God will always let that be the case. I will never give up and I will search for answers till I find them.

Geeze!!! I agree, I would totally push for treatment. My husband got Lyme disease from a tic bite a few years ago and he was miserable. They even treated his quickly and efficiently because he had the classic rash. I would get her treated. I am confused as to why they would suggest otherwise...????
Check with your
doctor first!
