I find this all the time and much to often when a Non Lyme Literate Medical professional will use CDC protocol testing and get negative testing. It is not that medical people are stupid or uncaring about Lyme sufferers. It is a defunked two tier testing and lack of education in todays knowledge of Tick related illnesses. It is about not knowing when and how to use the testing protocols that we have and when to throw those out and use another non-protocol test that is +99% accurate. The medical community must learn how to recognoze these sufferers for a clinical diagnosis. The medical establishment must find the courage to diagnose the disease and not so much rely on testing. A popupular statement in the lyme world is "TREAT THE DISEASE, NOT THE TEST" If you are diagnosed with any auto immune related disease or affliction or back, neck, muscle, joint, migraines pain. IN MY OPPINION. Seek a Lyme knowledgeable person to get you to a test or Lyme Literate Individual that 99% of the non lyme community will absolutely not help you with. At this time I feel a very hi % of Undiagnosed Lyme. I here so often about herniated discs. Yes they probably are but maybe they are herniated by inflammation from lyme. Worth checking out. IN MY OPPINION.
