Third stage Lyme and Crohns means that I see a doctor on a regular basis. In 2008 I started some new symptoms- tired, bone pain,sweats. I just kept after the Dr to pursue a third diagnosis. He did after his father was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. He learned that this is not a hopeless death sentence, but a treatable disease. I am doing very well with treatment. The cost of care is staggering.
