I'm reposting this for the new people or anyone that has never seen the list of symptoms.


Below is a Lyme symptom list. You can have any combination of symptoms. (courtesy of ticker)

Unexplained fevers, sweats, chills, or flushing
Unexplained weight change--loss or gain
Fatigue, tiredness, poor stamina
Unexplained hair loss
Swollen glands
Sore throat
Testicular pain/pelvic pain
Unexplained menstrual irregularity
Unexplained milk production: breast pain
Irritable bladder or bladder dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction or loss of libido
Upset stomach
Change in bowel function-constipation, diarrhea
Chest pain or rib soreness
Shortness of breath, cough
Heart palpitations, pulse skips, heart block
Any history of a heart murmur or valve prolapse?
Joint pain or swelling
Stiffness of the joints, neck, or back
Muscle pain or cramps
Twitching of the face or other muscles
Headache
Neck creeks and cracks, neck stiffness, neck pain
Tingling, numbness, burning or stabbing sensations, shooting pains

lncreased motion sickness, vertigo, poor balance
Lightheadedness, wooziness
Tremor

Difficulty with speech or writing
Mood swings, irritability, depression
Disturbed sleep-too much, too little, early awakening
Exaggerated symptoms or worse hangover from alcohol

When Lyme disease is a possibility, it is very important to see a knowledgeable doctor. Many doctors do not understand Lyme and treat with outdated protocols. No test is completely reliable, and results can vary by lab.

It is also important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading Dr. Joseph Burrascano's 2005 Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines For Lyme and Other Tick Borne Illnesses at 1. http://www.ilads.org/burrascano_0905.html He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many Lyme doctors follow his protocols. I also recommend the book "Everything You Need To Know about Lyme Disease (2nd edition)" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner.

Hi CajunGrl,

In case you have not seen it, the Pennsylvania Lyme Disease Assoc. has a great little information booklet about lyme disease. The symptoms list is arranged by "body systems" and can really help people identify the many seemingly unrelated and varied symptoms. A long time ago the booklets were free, or available for a small donation. I purchased some and handed them all out so I need to order more. I thought you might like to get one for yourself. I think it's a great booklet, very informative, yet easy to read. I hope they are still available.

Best wishes, bablymers mom

babylymers,

That's very interesting. I think I've seen the symptoms separated like that online. You are more than welcome to post the site where we can get the information.

Thanks again!

P.S.- We can maybe post it in the newbie section. That is where I got this list. I also want to say, thank you for all the help you give the members here.

Hi everyone!

Sorry it took me awhile to get back to you. I've been too busy and not feeling well enough to do much on the computer. Here is the website for the Penn. Lyme Assoc. The site gives info how to contact them. Sorry my link did not turn out "active" for some reason-----you will have to "copy and paste".

CG---My pleasure to help out. I love this forum. It has been extremely helpful to me and to others. So nice of you to offer to moderate. I know it takes a lot of work and time, so Thanks to you also!

Best wishes to all, bablymers mom
