I'm curious if there are any doctors here that think that undiagnosed Lyme disease may be the cause of alot of fibromyalgia and CFS?

Lyme disease. can be diagnosed and treated by your family doctor. If symptoms continue, a Lyme disease specialist can help. Your doc or the local medical society or hospital can refer you. Yes, please see doc and get tested but know that Lyme results and symptoms are mysterious anc can produce Fibro & CFS like symptoms. If you have symptoms see doc even if lab work says not. Peace and good health.
