I skimmed through your post (sorry it was a little long :)
Can you please list your symptoms? That may help people help you.
Please check Lyme Disease + Co-infections. Why?
- you are an outdoors person (higher chance to be exposed)
- you ride horse, more exposure to ticks
- most undiagnosed cases of "strange symptoms" are Lyme Disease
- Lyme usually comes along with parasites, candida, co-infections, adrenal fatigue, etc.
you can go to mylymediseasetreatment.com and see if you have similar symptoms... or go to betterhealthguy.com and check there.
or google NON-MEDICAL sites. what i mean by this is NOT the Mayo Clinic, NOT the Cleveland Clinic, etc. They know nothing about Lyme, parasites, etc. Individual people who have dealt with and overcome Lyme is the way to understand the disease.
do NOT waste time on the ELISA or WESTERN BLOT test. You need to find an LLMD (lyme literate doctor) or just go treating yourself as if you have Lyme (if you come to that conclusion).
99.5% of doctors are not helpful when it comes to REAL causes of illness. 0.5% are very good... and they are few and far between and NOT on your insurance plan.
BTW - only 20% of people remember getting bit by a tick... the rest NEVER remembered the bit. It could have been years ago.
