Any connection between PF and Lymes' diseasePosted by Elise on 9/19/98 at 11:35 (001922)
My doctor ran a series of blood test to see if there are rheumatological factors contributing to my PF. To our surprise, all the rheumatology tests came back negative, but chronic long-term Lymes disease came back very positive. Although my doctors have never heard of PF being caused by Lymes disease, it seems to be a strange coincidence.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has a history of Lymes disease or has been tested. I will let you know if the treatment for my Lymes disease seems to affect the PF.

Suzi told me by phone that Lyme has false positives on the tests and that they sent her on a wild goose chase. But, there still could be a connection.

I'll let you know when I get the results of the more extensive follow-up tests.
