I am sorry you and your dog have Lyme. Is your dog getting treated? How long have you been sick? Did the MRI show lesions on your brain? Lyme disease can cause these. I don't know if your eye problem could be related, but a Lyme knowledgeable doctor would probably know.
Below is a Lyme symptom list. You can have any combination of symptoms.
It is very important to see a knowledgeable doctor. Many doctors do not understand Lyme and treat with outdated protocols. Infectious disease doctors are not usually the best to see unless they specialize in tick-borne diseases.
Besides Lyme, ticks can also transmit several co-infections including Babesiosis, two types of Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. Many people who have Lyme are co-infected. It may affect treatment choice and progress. It is important to be tested for these by a Lyme reputable lab such as IgeneX in Palo Alto, CA. Have you been tested for these?
If you need a doctor recommendation, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is also important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2008 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses at http://www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/B_guidelines_12_17_08.pdf He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. I also recommend the books "The Lyme Disease Solution" by Kenneth B. Singleton M.D. and "Everything You Need To Know about Lyme Disease Second Edition" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner.
