My Lyme Disease Doctor, Dr Daniel Jaller, and the documentary video featuring him
I've had Lyme Disease for the past 14 years, but only found a doctor who sufficiently understood it to make me significantly better five years ago. Doctor Daniel Jaller of (now) Gaithersburg Maryland has been treating me for the past five years, and I am now in better shape than at any other time since I was infected. I'm posting this in the hopes that others in need of his services will find his practice and get help. Below are several informative links as well as a documentary which my doctor was featured in.

2 Rubber Duckies or Leave a Rubber Ducky

My doctor was William B. Furlong (703-516-4503). He gave me a choice of antibiotics and after my first choice failed to work, I got the other one he called next-generation antibiotics. Fortunately, that worked and except for some light arthritis on my right knee, I'm back to my foolish self.

I've read what your doctor says on his blog but I think you can get sweats like hot flashes for a number of chronic immune diseases, for example, thyroid disease, which I might have now. Basically, I'm falling apart :-)

Best wishes to a healthy new year!

From what my doctor has taught me about "the three life-cycles" of the Lyme Disease causing spirochete, it seems highly unlikely that either course of the antibiotics you were on would have cleared it out entirely.

I suspect you were merely pushed back into the sort of partial remission I suffered for six years following my initial diagnosis in 2000. Like you I assumed the arthritis I carried was merely an annoying, lingering, after-effect as opposed to an ongoing symptom during which Lyme took a greater foothold.

If you can afford to, I'd urge you to get checked out by Dr Jaller. There's no point perpetuating misery, and perhaps even shortening your life, if there's something which can be done about it.
