    I'm so excited about Nevada! Maybe that will work out. Again, thanks for the feedback. I agree that this isn't a good time to go back to Florida.

    heapsreal, the issue is......what if I don't have lyme? The abx will make hash of my candda (and gut in general), which I'll fix with the flagyl, and then I'll have no way of knowing if all that work did anything useful. Unless I'm lucky and I feel a lot better. Which has never happened in 28 years of treatments. It's all just another CFS Rubics cube.

    you know me, i think chuck everything at it and see what happens. SOmetimes the best way to diagnose something is to treat it and see if u improve??? I understand the candida is an issue.
    i never did get that rubics cube out unless u taking it apart and putting it back together is included??

    Is Rey the only doctor testing for Cytokines in the US? My doctor is Enlander. I don't remember him ever testing for it.

    I just saw my doctor, and he's all over the Lyme. My 1st results WERE equivocal, he's ordered a test kit that's similar to Infectolabs' test but he likes better. If those results are equivocal he's got some other plan.

    I gave him the cytokine results and he copied them to do some research, so hopefully I'll get some information to share.
