Lyme anyone??

Ok so MR. Shaky Pants is off for a MRI of his spine and neck this morning. They called him this morning to tell him his test for Lyme diease came back positive. Which this makes no sense. He only has one symptom of Lyme , plus that symptom is so common it could be for any number of things. I know those test come back with false readings all the time..My mom even had a false positive Lyme test years ago.

He has to have a lumbar puncture Wednesday.

I was reading about the false positive reading..He either has syphilis or a dental infection..In either case he haas some explaining to do...

Or it could just be a false reading...Or he could have it...I highly doubt it..

Ok, has anyone here ever had a false positive reading on a Lyme test?..Anyone, anyone , anyone?

I knew I shoulda finished med school..dangitalltoheck

So we still no nothing....Nothing seems to be what I know best these days.

Carry on then, we are done here..

Bee Real

ok, just to be clear I do not think he has was suppose to be a funny..just want to make it clear...haha

Now go read the post about the Toys..this one is not really that funny or amusing in the least..mmkay??

Hopefully they figure things out soon! I have never had that test done, so I don't know about it. Hang in there!!

I know it must be frustrating waiting for them to figure this all out so that he can get better. They'll get to the bottom of it soon.

Sorry, I know nothing about Lyme disease or Syphilis - Thank goodness ;)

I know nothing about Lyme disease either.
Take care.

Doctors,Doctors..can't live with or without-
What are we going to do with them?

I hope you find something definite soon, I had gone to the Dr's. for some tests last summer & they told me I had huge nodules on each side of my thyroid & that my thyroid was enlarged to a size of a potato! I totally freaked out & then went back after seeing a few specialists & someone measured my whole throat wrong, it was an error on their part..So, I know how it is when you feel like they (Dr's. )might be wrong or don't know something..
either way, I hope you get to the bottom of this for your husband's sake too!
Take care~

Sometimes don't you wonder if there is just a great big wheel in the doctor's office with 20-30 different diagnosis and they just spin the wheel and that's what they end up with? I hope they come up with something soon and a treatment plan... Hang in there!

and if it's syphillis - don't believe that it came from a toilet seat!! lol

Sending good thoughts and a great big hug your way!

iwas thinking the same thing..there is no way he has freaking lyme diease..and I ams ure it aint syphilis..haha..but I thought it was funny

i wish they would run the damn test again..damn fools..

My soon to be sister in law has dormant lyme disease but I know very little about it. Suposedly it is pretty curable right now. My great grandfather had syphilis but as he had already died by the time I was born I couldn't tell you much about that either. A lumbar puncture soulds painful. Maybe you need to make the poor man another pan of brownies after that.

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

yes it is pretty treatabe..but my gut is telling me this is wrong..he does not match any of the symptoms..

I was joking about the shpylis..I hope non of you think I think he has syphilis;)

But wed after the spinal tap they will know for certain if it is or not..

brownies huh?...well I need to think about that;)

I have 3 sick kids here ya no..teehee

Choppzs said...

Wow, that's pretty scary, but you all will be in my thoughts and prayers!! I know nothing about Lyme disease, except that that chic from the Real World had it and she claimed it made her all wacko and stuff. lol hmmmm, maybe that's me?? lol I hope they come back with some concrete results soon and you find out what is really up. Good luck!

AL said...

No matter what it is - you are in my thoughts. I bet you wish you just know - the waiting must be killing you. Good luck :)

Cori said...

Glad to hear that you really dont think he has an STD! I am sure its nothing and I have not had Lyme you get that from ticks? Has he been sleeping with Bamby?

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

funny how we rembmber stuff about stupid reality tv from 10 years ago..haha

thank you..hopfully we will no something for sure by weeks end..hopfully;)

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

Meow said...

Sorry that things are taking so long. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could just snap our fingers ... and there would be the answer. At least when you know, good or (hopefully not) bad, you can get on with treating the problem. I'm sitting here with my fingers crossed for you, hoping it is something simple to cure. Take care, Meow xx

Bossy♥'s YOU said...

yes it is taking much too long..hopfully the end is coming;)

EmmaSometimes said...

oh! Have you ever had or been around an LP?? POOR GUY. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. They tried to usher me out the room when my 3 yr old was just 6 days old with RSV, but I absolutely refused to leave. I fought it and stayed.

Never dealt with Lyme disease but I too have heard of false positives.

I giggled over 'boobs too big to do housework' was she bigger than an H??? Get that woman a reduction!

Angel Girl said...

Dude seriously you crack me up! I hope that all your family's disease clear up soon!

Sorry to hear about the MIL, gladly have never had an aweful NMIL (not mother in law).
