Her Doctor Blamed Aging, But It Was Actually Lyme Disease
Four summers ago, Christina Sfakianos went from feeling fit and energized to noticing she was sluggish and unfocused. Her general practitioner tested her for Lyme, but said age was to blame— she was 35 at the time —when the test came back negative. Then, the New York City woman’s health worsened.
Watch the full WellBe interview with Sfakianos to hear how her symptoms got so bad at one point that she didn’t even realize she’d cut herself until she was bleeding into her daughter’s dinner (that was from the nerve damage) and how she worked with a Lyme specialist at John Hopkins Medicine Lyme Disease Research Center and an integrative practitioner to finally feel normal again.
