Read his first post on page 3 - sums it up.

Fancy this, Fancy that and by the way, T*t for Tat

I am out of pocket a good sum of money for the treatment I sought through Naturopathic Dr.'s, hopefully others in the future won't have to go through the same ordeal.

I know this thread is older now but TreeGuy if you don't mind sharing how did you eventually get diagnosed? I skimmed through and may have missed it in the thread but not sure how you finally got diagnosed.


I saw Dr. Chan, a naturopathic Dr in Richmond. He did some in clinic testing and sent my blood down to the USA. It is a quantitative test and the numbers showed it was likely that I had Lyme, so I went on two different antibiotics.

After that I saw Dr Pagdin as I had adrenal fatigue. Now often major trauma can bring Lyme symptoms back. I don’t think breaking my neck will do that as I was on intravenous antibiotics in the hospital.

PM me if you would like to discuss it more.

Sorry to hear your struggle and hope you are starting to feel better. Adrenal fatigue--not good. I am sure they must have also checked you for Addison's Disease after everything you've been through. Thank you for sharing and the info I appreciate that and :130: to your recovery.

This was found in Vanderhoof last weekend. The poor moose that was here has been ravaged by ticks. They are bad this year, so please be aware and check yourself and pets regularly if you are out and about. Lyme disease is not fun to deal with as deer ticks are also being found.

I can testify to that!

Some believe mosquitos also carry lyme bacteria.

For those who are concerned about Lyme disease (we all should be aware) or who are so unfortunate as to actually have it,this is for you.

An excellent, clearly stated and easy to understand 20 min interview on CBC radio on The Sunday Edition, today.

The segment is titled "Lyme disease, the first epidemic of climate change"

The interviewee has just published a book with the same title. Hope this is of some help to those afflicted.

:biggrin:
nothing wrong with being open minded as long as your brains don't fall out.
