I was dx'd with ME/CFS for 17 years before finding out I had Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia last November. Since being on treatment for the last 7 months, my life is returning. I am getting my life back after 17 years. My passion now is to ask all of my ME/CFS friends to consider getting retested for Lyme Disease. Even if you had tests and they were negative (mine was three times from 1993-2004), and/or even if you cannot recall being bit by a tick, or think you cant have it because you don't live in a "Lyme" state. Lyme tick distribution in the US is growing past the old borders on the east coast. And there is evidence that Lyme can be gotten in other ways (See the page "First things first..." question #1 on the web site).
The standard (CDC's of course) test given (the ELISA test) to test for Lyme is 50-59% wrong Always. You need to get a western blot test at a reputable Lyme lab to accurately test you.
It's critical for you to get a Western Blot Lyme Disease and it's Co-infections test. This is performed by many labs, but some of the labs have different standards of interpreting the tests. In order to get the most accurate results, there are reputable Lyme labs you should consider getting tested from. IGeneX, Fry labs and a few more are listed on this blogs Good Lyme Lab Page:
