I've been meaning to get a Lyme's test for some time. I spend about 30 days a year walking through wooded areas and fields (in Maryland) where deer can be seen on a daily basis. If anyone would be considered high risk it would be me.
I have never noticed any bulls eye skin conditions which would be an indicator of early Lyme disease. In the past 6 months I have noticed the onset of joint pain in my shoulder, hip, neck and wrist. The pain seems to come and go but gets worse at night or when I'm tired. At first I thought the shoulder pain was due to playing Volleyball but since it has migrated to other areas I'm concerned that this might be Lymes. I haven't played VB for over month and the hip pain just started this week.
I have been having ocular migraine headaches for about 2 years but I don't think that has anything to do with Lymes but hey who knows.
I have a high stress job and pretty much support my family as a sole bread winner so I'm always feeling stressed and tired. I also use a breathing machine at night since I have sleep apnea. On the positive, I've been using my sleep machine for a over a year now and haven't been sick since using it. That's over a year without a flu or cold :)
Please let me know of any good LLMD's in the Maryland, VA, DC, PA area.
