Misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia and CFS for many years… Just another Lyme Story

I have also been diagnosed with Chronic or Late Stage Lyme Disease which is often a cause of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Sarcoidosis, Multiple Sclerosis and on and on. Lyme disease is called “the great imitator” because it does mimic so many other chronic diseases.

I am currently undergoing antibiotic treatment but it is too early for me to tell for sure whether the treatment is working. However, despite a lot of reactions to being on the antibiotics, I am finding that the post-exertion malaise I have suffered with is markedly reduced right now.

I am not the lady in the video. The video owner believes that her Fibromyalgia and CFS are mis-diagnoses whereas I tend to believe that they are conditions that can be triggered by long-term Lyme Disease or one of its co-infections.
