Never bothered to really educate myself on Lyme disease until I was diagnosed w it after becoming very ill summer of 2009, with many of the same symptoms & swollen glands so bad they literally bulged out of my neck! The Lyme was in the late stages by the time we caught it and I still suffer from some of the effects, such as painful joints, stiffness, Lyme arthritis and other symptoms. However, Lyme is now being linked to fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue & both cause similar symptoms as Lyme.
