I was infected 16 years ago, in the UK. I have received no Lyme-specific treatment from the NHS, indeed I have been diagnosed by my GP and rheumatologist with fibromyalgia/chronic pain syndrome. More recently an ME specialist has decided his clinic might be able to help me. No-one listens when I tell them my symptoms are classic for Lyme Disease and that I have antibodies for Babesia, a co-infection. I'm pretty sure my GP thinks this is all in my head in spite of those classic symptoms. This is an appalling situation. I am not the only one this is happening to.Anonymous commented
I have Lyme and no treatment. As do so many others in the UK and worldwide. It's time we had adequate testing, clinical diagnosis and treatment.
