Re: “The tick and the time bomb

Hello Everyone,
I would like to share my story is well. Currently I am 26 years old and I have been healthy and athletic my entire life. I used to be a construction worker and would do exterior remodels frequently. When I was 25 years old I was on a job removing the gutters of a home, and I came in contact with many ticks. (This was in Colorado in the Castle Pines area.) At that time I had no idea they were ticks because I thought they were bigger (like the size of a sunflower seed). But no, these were small like black and orange-ish sesame seeds. Anyway, later that week I started feeling really weak, really fatigued, really cranky, and my heart started doing weird things. (Later on I started getting a long list of other weird symptoms.) Long story short, I went to many doctors that had no clue of what I had and had many tests done. They ended up diagnosing me with ALS. Ridiculous!
My " condition" has worsened at an extremely fast pace. I am nearly a quadriplegic. I started treatments of antibiotics through the groshong catheter on August 16th 2013. I am hoping for the best. If treatments start working and I make a recovery I will make sure to let everyone know.

Also, I tested negative for Lyme disease on the ELISA and the IGeneX tests. The IGeneX test did show evidence that there could be a different type of spirochetal infection.

Good luck to everyone!
