Can symptoms of Lyme disease (and coinfections) become worse due to changes in the weather (such as change in barometric pressure)?
Yes: Lyme disease can cause just about any symptom known to man, including sensitivity to changes in barometric pressure. Western medicine has little if anything to offer for this symptom but homeopathy and chinese medicine can help; of course proper treatment of lyme and co-infections should help too! ...Read more
Can blood test be false negative for Lyme disease? Bulls eye bite on 8/16/13 but symptoms much worse since anesthesia from g.B. Removal on 10/11/13
YES!!!: A bulls-eye rash is pathognomonic of lyme, meaning it alone generally proves you got it. Blood tests are notoriously unreliable for lyme-only half with lyme have a positive eia & the confirmatory western blot has many false negatives, esp.

I am on a fentanyl patch to control my pain I have fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease. I forgot this morning, took Ultram twice 100 mg, I am naseous.?

I suggest contacting your physician, and also creating a way to consistently keep track of the pills you take each day. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
