HI Does anyone know the total number of tick-borne illnesses discovered to date? Does 11 seem about right? It seems like research is uncovering new ones all the time (or I'm just finding out about them) I hear a lot of people say they have an LLMD but does that imply the MD know about the other illnesses? I read a website today-Columbia's Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases Research Center-that seemed honest about the limitations of testing for these-and there are many limitations. So that raises a few questions for me: 1-Is it possible many of us have a yet to be discovered tick-borne illness? (several were previously only in animals and are now affecting humans) 2-Is it possible many of us have an identified illness but had inaccurate testing (or a false positive) ? OR 3- do many of you think something else altogether is making you sick? What are the thoughts about this?
