It would be interesting to know if any one on this forum has been tested for lyme related bacteria or if any one has been diagnosed with epstein barr virus glandular fever in the past.

For  dantheman's record: 25 years into IC, I had a tick bite on my scalp and very sick for 2 weeks, but not Lyme or even Rocky Mt. Spotted, prevalent in my area. Also had severe case of mono 2 years before IC started.

Not a question, but I was always allergic. Every time I moved I had to get re tested. The allergists would come in saying how bad all my allergies were. Growing bored, I used to comment, "Yeah, I am the allergy queen." And that is how the queen name for me started. One allergist looked at me and said, "No, that would be my sister."

Several weeks or maybe almost a month after the tick bite, I woke up and could barely walk ......it was what I would think all over arthritis would be like. Called my family doc to learn it would go away the next day and it did. Tick bite related as this educated group knows.

I have had glandular fever which led to CFS. I've never been tested for Lyme. I do know of other people with CFS who have eventually been diagnosed with Lyme disease and Q fever. I hope zoonoses like these will also be looked into, as well as viruses like EBV.
