Hi Everyone: Since I woke up this morning I have been able to hear my own heartbeat in my ears. Kind of like a "swooshing sound" with each beat. Anyone have this symptom, its a new one for me... Thanks   D

I have this symptom. It drives me crazy. The only thing that helped it was heparin for hypercoagulation. It was gone during the 10.5 months I was doing the heparin shots but it came back about 2 months after I stopped them. Let me know if you find out what this is from! Hope you finds something that helps you as the swooshing is very annoying.

Yes, I have had this since February in my left ear. Also this ear feels clogged all the time, but the ENT says it isn't.

Munch: Is the hypercoagulation gone? I was told in Boston I had that from mold toxins, he used heparin under the tongue. However, they do not use it here that way. Did the 10 months of injections do the trick??  Also was your blood pressure high?Thanks to both of you for answering.... D

I should state that I definitely have hypercoagulation.... but never treated for this during my lyme treatment. When I was pregnant with my son back in 2005 I was on heparin shots 2x a day because of "sticky blood". I stopped taking it after giving birth in 2005 though and didn't get diagnosed with lyme until april 2007. never taken heparin during this treatment.

however, now that i think of it.... my ear symptoms started around the time i stopped taking baby aspirin daily.

hmmm... maybe i'll start that up again. i will be on heparin again soon because i am going to try to get pregnant in 2009 and need this to prevent miscarriage (along with abx. to prevent transmission of lyme). I am off abx now and 90% better. The ear thing is my main remaining annoying symptom.....

Maureen: May I ask how they diagnosed your "sticky blood and did they say it was from the Lyme?" Interesting about the miscarriage as I have one in my 4th month of pregnancy years ago. Hmm.... D

I was telling my Dr. about my miscarriage in 2003 that I had in Martha's Vineyard one summer. The summer that I decided to plant my whole garden..over and over because the deer kept eating all of my flowers. Lol. Dumb!
When I told my Dr. here about it he mentioned a blood problem that causes the miscarriage also. The blood thickens and does not flow to the baby right. Which also explains why I was so ill when pregnant with Lilly right afterwards. I got pregnant again in about 8 weeks.
The statistics for miscarriage on Long Island are the highest in the country. Maybe even the world. And considering the amount of money there this is absurd. I had wanted to give Lilly a sibling. But with two sick kids and a sick momma, I am too worried to have more kids in my condition. And it is such a battle dealing with the schools with a sick child. Most of my friends lost their babies in the vineyard as well. It was so sad. Now cancer seems to be the biggest problem in the vineyard. I can't help but think that all of these people have lyme.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.

I have positive antiphospholipid antibodies. I asked to be tested after a miscarriage before I tried to get pregnant and sure enough I had some of the antibodies come back positive NOT lupus anticoagulant or anticardiolipid or lipin (i forget what it is called). If I did have lyme back then, I did not know it. I did not get really sick with lyme until my son was around 18 months old and I was weaning him from breastfeeding.

So, i had to be on heparin and baby aspirin to prevent miscarriage with my son. It is very common that sticky blood results in later miscarriages as well.

Dowa- I am sorry to hear about your miscarriage at 4 months years ago. That must have been really difficult.
