my wife has been ill for six weeks
fatigue, nausea mostly now after thinking it was cold/flu at first
gp has sent us to a rheumatologist for many tests
my wife was in Yosemite NP area right before and may have had a bite
Lymes? Lupus? Mixed connective tissue disorder?
Have some test results
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 year ago.

Fatigue cold like symptoms could be the feature of Lyme , so ideally she should be tested first for Lyme if it comes to be negative than she should be tested for Mixed connective tissue disorder as in females connective tissue disorder is common and fatigue could be its presentation , in her case she should first get test for Lyme .

Regards .
