I already did the research and I see I'm negative for Lyme which my specialist already told me that part. But looks like I tested positive for Rocky mountain. I don't understand IGG, IGM, IF etc. I'm guessing there is different kinds of Rocky mountain? She never specified what tick illness I had but it was no longer active. I lived around woods for most of my life so I'm not exactly sure when this happened to me. I rarely went to the doctor when I was sick. I've battled extreme fatigue for a long time. I know I've had heart palpitations since my early 20s. They might have gone back further I just don't remember. Anybody understand this lab report?

As far as I can tell you have the antibody for the spotted fever group or that rickettsia virus. It means your body has fought of one of the viruses in that group. If I remember my research right the tick bourne viruses can linger for a long time. Not sure how long the antibody would stay in your body though. That would be a question for your doctor.

Thanks for the response. If the tick virus damaged my nervous system, I wonder why it took so long for the major symptoms to happen. The fainting, nausea, shaking more than usual stuff. I've only gotten sick like once in the past few years and I took antibiotics for it . Me and my wife we both sick at the same time. I guess I'm just hoping it doesn't get worse. 

 

My symptoms seem to get aggrivated when I get out of bed and try and do normal chores. There's a homeless cat we feed. We bought a big plastic container and put blankets in it to protect him from the cold. I took a razor knife and cut a door. When I was done it was like my nerves were shot. Hands shaking and nauseated. I had to lay down and rest from an easy task. Pathetic. You guys have been on this journey longer than me. I know it had to be most terrifying in the beginning. Where I'm at now...

My son is at that stage. When I first got sick I tested my machine by doing a poor man's tilt table on my hubby and oldest son (I thought my machine was broken). My oldest son was 13 at that time. He showed a huge jump in HR. At the time I took him to a cardiologist who dismissed him. And figured it wasn't worth the diagnosis at the time because he was managing. He was actually taking care of me because I was so sick. Now that he is almost 16 it is causing way more issues. There are times where he can be just fine. Yesterday he brought in groceries and put them away with no issues. But the other night he was helping my hubby cook and all of a sudden felt so bad he had to go lay down. His stomach hurt, he couldn't breath, and felt like he was going to pass out. It is seemly at random. I am counting down the days til he sees my specialist. I am hoping he has POTS (sort of) just so he can have some medicine to take on a as needed basis just so it can help. He hates to complain and take medication but his symptoms are getting to the point were it is effecting his daily life. The good news is he is homeschooled so if he feels really bad he plays hooky. :D
