The Faces of Lyme: Penny
Penny’s Lyme diagnosis was further complicated with menopause; making an accurate diagnosis more difficult to sift out the real issues. Once her diagnosis was confirmed, she struggled with accepting the length of her treatment protocol. She just wanted to feel better now! One year later, feeling “back to normal” she says her best advice is to be patient. Some things are trial and error and it is going to take longer than you want to feel better, but stick with it. You have to be willing to make changes if things aren’t working. Dr. Shikhman clears up the confusion around length of treatment and that it is possible to get Lyme in California.
