Hi Folks:

I am so glad I found this group. Thank you for letting me join

I hope you can help. I have Lyme and recently went to my ID doc. because my arms started tingling, pins and needles, face numb, etc. some joint discomfort. This happened about 10 years ago and was found to have late-stage Lyme and underwent treatment. After which, things cleared up. I suspect the same thing is happening, infected again. The ID doc ordered blood work done, which shows Lyme is still very active. I am freaking out because my RF is 12.6 and CCP is <16. My GP says nothing serious but get checked out by rheumatologist.

I can't even get near making an appointment online, so I have called today and await a response.

This is going to be a very challenging time.

Any words of wisdom would be truly welcomed.
