User :   ok I have PSOD but still something is not right. I have been asking for over 3 years. The nurse at work says symptoms fit Lyme's disease seeing as she herself pulled a tick off me. Rash, headaches, joint pain, fatigue, forgetfulness, stomach ache, bruise easily. My Dr. doesn't want to bother 3 others said they have no idea. I feel like I am losing my mind. Can you help?
