Hello, I'm back on these boards, (unfortunately) and was tested positive thru IGenX for Lyme. No Babaesia. Going to see a LLMD next week and am anxious about it. I just got off Klonopin and Neurontin and I'm suffering from flu-like s/xs along with terrible burning pains inside me. Like I'm on fire! It sucks and makes me panic.

They did not test me for Bart.

Was on the FB Lyme groups and then are all terrifingy me! So scared that I'm going to mess up my body and mind even more and loose tens of thousands of dollars for treatments. Jeez, what do I do now?

Have been taking Klonopin off and on "as needed" for about a year now. About every 5-10 days I take 0.5 for panic and anxiety. I just want off with no pain and I'm scared that I really have Lyme.

Got 2 western blots reg labs and they were negative.

"sigh"

I received a positive lyme through western blot with my general practitioner right after I finished my taper. She sent me to the best infectious disease dr in Houston and this doc tested me for Epstein Barr, which came back positive.  She said that it stemmed from having mono in my teens.  She told me that many times having EBV will trigger a positive lyme dx.  She just told me to take a liquid glutithione and some b12 and hope for the best.
 So, I decided to do some research on my own and I came across an anti viral protocol by someone named Anthony William.  He wrote a book about mystery illness and devotes a chapter to lyme disease. he writes that it is actually viral and not a bacteria, so it will respond to anti virals as well.  *Well, here was the most fascinating point... He said that benzodiazepines are like fuel to the fire with EBV & lyme.*  So, what if I already had the EBV lying dormant in my body and taking the benzos weakened my immune system, not to mention the stress, and caused the virus to flare up?  This is scary to me, but also gives me hope.
I have a friend I found on a lyme FB group that told me he has been on the anti viral protocol for a year now and is Finally getting better. That gave me more hope, as he had been on Klonopin as well as diagnosed with lyme.
I hope this will give some of you hope too and you won't think that I am  :idiot:

It's actually the other way around. Lyme causes a false positive Epstein Barr.
