Hi, my name is Alexa Hostetler. I live in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I am 14 years and I have Lyme Disease.
I have had it for almost 3 years now, since age 11.
For the past 3 years I have been sick with terrible stomach pain. AGONIZING! A burn, but yet hurt at the top of my stomach.
My mom and I have been all around the state, to GI doctors, infectious disease doctors, everyone. I have had upper GI tests, endoscopies and biopsies, ultrasounds, all kinds of tests, and not one doctor found anything.

My mom had suggested to most of the doctors, that maybe it’s Lyme Disease, they thought we were crazy, and most of them ended up saying, that it was all in my head and there was nothing wrong with me causing me to be so sick.

After being sick for about 3 years, we went to a family doctor and decided that I should be tested for Lyme Disease. My mom sent the kit with my blood to California to have it tested and it came back positive. Lyme Disease was positive, and also H. Pylori.
It causes me to be sick sleeping on the floor of my bathroom every 6-8 weeks. With diarrhea, vomiting, and terrible stomach pain.

I have missed tons and tons of school, and vacations, and friend time.

But now I am at an excellent doctor in Raleigh NC, who is treating me with nutrients, and we are about to start the medicine. I am still battleing Lyme and H. Pylori.
