Subject: RE: Help my girlfriend solve medical mystery
Will the people offering why they think it is lupus or some kind of connective tissue disorder explain their reasoning, versus, let's say, the Lyme Disease explanation.
I'm concerned about the irregular heatbeat episode(s), which both Lyme and lupus note are symptoms. It seems if left untreated these are serious considerations that demand immediate attention, so a competent diagnosis is warranted -- and I'm not competent in any way.
I'd call the specialist who deals with children's Lyme disease just to get some direction. Make reference to that poster's directive to do so.
I apologize if my earlier post forced the OP to divulge information about his health insurance and job status. That wasn't my intent. I'd like to be kept up-to-date on this, in case I can learn from it.
And the Mayo Clinic's notes on Lyme state that it is concentrated in the Northeast, Wisconsin, and Northern California, among other places.
Thanks and no worries. She so desperate for a diagnosis she'll divulge anything. She'll be one the phone tomorrow.
