I have been on oral antibiotics for one month. I basically feel fine. The twitching is almost gone. My face feel cool?? Not hands or feet?? Is this a side effect of the antibiotics or perhaps an indication the infection is ending. My jaw fells fine-- it has been sore?? I see the IMD on Friday for an ecocardigram to find out if I have heart damage. Does anyone have this experience with a cool sensation sensation in the face-- it is not unpleasant just another weird thing.

Yes, I have a cool face as well. Do you take your temperature when it is cool? I woke up today with a temp of 95. Crazy...I know low temp is a Lyme symptom.  D

Not to hijack but I typically have a high temp... 99.5 is my norm.

yeah, I run a low temp. too... so when I register a 99 or higher, it's a real fever.... My blood pressure is starting to jump around which is freaking me out. I have always (even pre-Lyme) run a low BP. One day a week or two ago I ran like a 170/90... then, a few days later I ran a 96/68... both were done manually and checked twice.

I am so over this disease.
