I am new to this and am writing as I have only one band present on my Lyme test: the IGM P23. Other than this my test is negative.
I have a history of EBV, and as of a week ago my ESR rate was 78, my lymph were at 0.4, and my B12 was 200, and I had 6 pea sized nodes swollen up and down the back size of my neck. CTSCAN showed nodules on my thyroid over a year ago, but the ultrasound could not pick anything up.
Furthermore I have been dealing with the following symptoms that have been coming and going for the past couple of years and I have marked the ones which are currently plaguing me:
Fatigue, tiredness, poor stamina - non stop for 2 1/2 weeks now
Unexplained hair loss
Swollen glands - in the past two weeks
Sore throat - past 3 days
Pelvic pain - comes and goes
Unexplained menstrual irregularity - yes but I also have an IUD
Change in bowel function- over the past few weeks I have felt more constipation than I ever have in my life
Chest pain or rib soreness - this is something that occurred in the past few years and still occurs when it is cold
Heart palpitations, pulse skips- occurs randomly
history of valve prolapse - for 12 years that randomly disappeared last year
Joint pain or swelling - constant pain in hips & knees, occasionally elbows
Stiffness of the joints, neck, or back - nonstop for the past 2-3 weeks
Muscle pain or cramps - cramps in my pelvic area
Headache - mostly on one side and the back of my head & overwhelming feeling of pressure for the past 3 weeks
Neck creeks and cracks, neck stiffness, neck pain - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks
Tingling, numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks numbness and tingling in arms, feet, and hips
Eyes/Vision: blurry, increased floaters, light sensitivity, & constantly feeling that there is pressure behind my eye, or that there is something in the tear duct - constantly in past 2-3 weeks
Ears/Hearing: ringing, sound sensitivity (can't take loud noises these days at all), and constant feeling like my ear is clogged...
lncreased motion sickness, vertigo, poor balance - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks
Lightheadedness, wooziness - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks
Confusion, difficulty in thinking - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks
Difficulty with concentration, reading - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks
Forgetfulness, poor short term memory - more than usual in past 2-3 weeks - and I have a GOOD memory (too good for my own good at times)
Disturbed sleep-too much, too little, early awakening
Night sweats and chills, but no fever - constantly the past few weeks
Can someone let me know if this is really Lyme or if I am looking at this all wrong. If this is Lyme, can someone please help me with a LLMD in the NYC area?
Thanks in advance!
