1) Triggers - I think there are many triggers to the head pain symptom. For me, mold exposure, sunlight and bright lights, sugar and certain foods. Thankfully, I've become sensitive to my triggers and they have become manageable.
2) Suggestions as to what was going on? - Lots of suggestions by doctors like migraines, etc. The reality.. its the lyme bacteria causing my head pressure, head pain, headaches.
3)Yes, treatment has helped - First, diet and exercise. Secondly, doxy, mino, biaxin combo's. (changing every 6-8 weeks or so).
Oh Gracie, I think head symptoms ARE a main symptom with lyme. Part of the issue in my opinion is that different people describe their pain differently. Is it really a headache? Or is it head pain? Or is it head pressure? Or is it brain fog? Or maybe its just a stiff neck? Oh, its just lightheadedness?....... you see, its the bacteria causing everyone's pain, its just that everyone describes it and feels it a little differently...
p.s. one day we'll have clear heads again. mind over matter.
