Diagnosed with Lyme disease. Suggest the treatment?

Sir/Mam I believe due to the research I have been doing that I have adisease that isn t even in the web md . Morgollon disease. I have every symptom of it slam do the t. I was recently diagnosed with Lyme disease and curios that could be what s causing these symptoms. Im interested in finding out what causes this, what could be a potential health concerning issue long term , what can cure it and how long could it take to do so. I have been to the hospital multiple times one Dr said many soldiers that deployed to Iraq as I did too, came back with the same unknown medical mystery . They took photos and sent it to dermotology and yet to hear back. Another Dr said it was all in my head when there was evidence proving otherwise. I m suffering and desperate to end it. thank you for your time and consideration in this matter giana

Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Morgellon's disease diagnosis as such is still under controversy and very few studies discuss this disease. Lymes disease is caused by tick bite which is characterized by dermatitis and joint pains with fatigue. There have been instances where they have linked Morgellon's disease with Lyme's disease but that is still not proven.
I understand your concern and anxiety. I would suggest you try to divert your mind from the symptoms by keeping yourself busy. Regular exercise will also help elevate your mood and keep you fit. Please wait for the reports from dermatology for any effective therapy options. I hope I have helped you with my answer.
Thanks.
