Princeton woman recalls ordeal with Lyme Disease, with misdiagnosis a problem
Princeton Area Library head librarian Robin Suhsen emerged in late October this year from a painful experience with Lyme disease, and she and her husband Scott said it was made worse by early misdiagnosis.
Robin, 53, noticed an irritating rash on her back in early June and went to Fairview Northland’s express clinic at Coborn’s at mid month to check it out. It was the beginning of an ordeal that lasted through the summer into fall.
If pain is measured on a scale of 1 to 10, Robin said during an interview this month, the pain she felt in the first three weeks of July was a 10. Robin equated it with the pain of giving natural birth. See more in Editor Jeff Hage’s Princeton Union-Eagle story.
