Hi everyone! I am new to this wonderful site. I just found it today. I have a large group of family and friends that I have always relied on to support me over the years. I guess now I have some questions and am hoping someone in this community might be sharing a similar experience. That is, I am a type 1 diabetic and I recently found out that I also have Erlichiosis. Sounds terrible but it is a tick disease like lymes but a different bacteria and I was wondering two things. 1. Has anyone else delt with this ( joint pain, inflammation ) and 2. if so, did anyone else have trouble taking anti-biotics in regards to very high blood sugars? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. My endo and infectious disease docs are stumped.
