Anyone else have this problem? Bumping into doorways? My shoulders and arms are getting sore. Is this Lyme-like?

Do you have neuropathy in your feet or lower legs? It's a numbness or tingling feeling. If so, the nerves have been affected some. With reduced sensory input, your balance isn't as good. A neurologist asked me, "Can you walk across a room in the dark?"

I have some neuropathy and my balance has been affected some. So like with the dark room - I need visual cues to make up for the reduced sensory info coming from my feet.

Neuropathy could be caused either by Lyme or by the treatment for it.

OMG, yes I have this problem. It's embarrassing at times and I'm sure people must think I'm either drunk or taking drugs. lol I always have black and blues and usually have no idea how I got them.

As for the tingling, whenever I brush my teeth with the sonic care tootbrush my feet tingle like crazy. lol Sometimes I understand why it's hard for people to believe we really experience all we do.

Yes. Plus I broke my toe the other night trying to get across the room. At one point I was afraid the woman I share an office with would think I had been drinking - so I explained I had Lyme and left it at that.

Hi All,
I have had this trouble for a while now. I believe with me it is a CNS issue - but not sure.

I also find that I have trouble with putting things down. I have significant issues with setting a coffee cup, or a glass down without it tipping.

As for me - it only means I don't handle anything that can break!!! smhair
And we now have rounded edges on all of our doorways!!!! shocked

Yeah...mine is a combo of poor vision and whacked out nerves in my feet. Before I got glasses, I was constantly walking into things. Now, I still walk into things but not as often (more common if the room is dark). I also find I tend to slam my feet into things when I'm not looking at them when I am walking. I think my vision issues are Lyme-related, and I'm fairly certain my feet nerve issues are from a combination of Lyme and RSD.

I also drop things very easily (have broken dishes, etc., this way, spilled lots of things, etc.)...so frustrating!

Same here. I have bumped my poor toes so often that both my little toes have a curl to them now. I think I broke my right toe already but never had it checked, lol.

I'm always bumping into things and dropping things. I've done this for years and thought I was just clumsy before I found out that I actually had Lyme.

Mother Natures Child, As you can see, you are definitely not alone in what you're experiencing. After I joined this group, I realized that so many of my symptoms that I dismissed because I didn't think they were important enough or bad enough were all lyme related, along with the symptoms I had been seeking treatment for for many years. I also always thought I was just clumsy until it eventually got the point where there was obviously something else going on.

Just keep in mind that once you start treatment it will probably get worse and new symptoms might appear.

Eventually, we all will improve - I hope! lol

I self diagnosed because I got tired of neurologists putting crazy-making it up, in my medical report. NEVER make the mistake of asking me what I think of neurologists! Decided it was either MS or Lyme. Found this web site, got help in finding a LLMD. Hate having to wait a month for apt. Please help me with another symptom, what do you do about the metal taste in mouth? Hate it!

In the past 12-18 months, my balance has not been good. Once I was diagnosed with Lyme and started reading up on it, I realized it was just another one of the lovely "benefits" of this special disease! Grrrrrr...

Mothers nature,

Are you taking anything at the moment that could maybe change your taste buds? Sometimes Biaxin(Clarithromycin) causes a metal taste.

Gosh this is so funny! now i know why my glass of water keeps tipping over! I don't know if it also might be my dexterity (did i spell that right?? probably not!) Anyway on occasion i bump into doorways too but it seems i drop a lot of stuff and knock things over more than i bump into anything at this point. LOL :)
I refuse to stay sick! Period.
