I stopped Lyme treatment after about
1 1/2 or 2 years - I had IV and oral treatment and felt about
90 percent better, but had to stop due to intestinal problems and also my kidneys were showing signs of stress. Aside from my extreme anxiety/panic (which I have had for over 20 years) and intestinal problems I have been doing okay until a few months ago. I started having the brain fogginess w/ some dizziness again and now my migraines are back, but that I am familiar with those. Here are some newer ones for me: Hair loss (I have lost hair before but not for this long a period of time) - It falls out in small handfuls in the shower and my brush is overflowing every morning - lucky to have thick hair to start with. Next is dry lips (VERY chapped and sometimes to the point of bleeding) for the past two months no matter what I use on them and also dry eyes that sometimes burn. I have also noticed a psoriasis type rash on my chest and arms (I had mild psoriasis on my face last year and it looks a little like that). I used the same cream the doctor gave me for that and it helped a little.
I am don't feel "sick enough" to start treatment again b/c the antibiotics would really agitate my current intestinal condition that I am dealing with. If I did anything I would have to go natural and I don't have the money to do that right now. I go back to see my infectious disease doc in a couple of weeks, but even if he thought that maybe the Lyme was coming back there is no way he would put back on meds (or I would want to go on them) due to my kidneys and issues right now.
I just wondered if this sounded like it could be Lyme related or not. Could it possibly be auto immune type thing? I don't know if I should go to my primary doc to be checked out too. Just wondered if you guys had any of these symptoms with your Lyme.
