Was wondering if anyone out there has these symptoms.


Dry eyes
Floaters - black fuzzy ones
Swirling circles and a few occasional flashers.
Eye pain -- around eye and it sort of hurt to blink.
Photophobia -- that's medical talk for light sensitivity particularly sunshine.

Am I herxing, is this lyme or one of its nice friends?

Thanks guys!


Signed,
Where is the cure? I'm hoping for one.

Hi HTFC, I have loads of black fuzzy and 'wriggly' shaped floaters & also the flashers & photophobia, it's getting worse & I think it's connected to the Lyme - don't the spirochaetes like to live in eyeballs? The black floaters are slowly turning into moving holes in my vision as they grow.
housebound in the UK with 'severe M.E./CFs & fibromyalgia' for 21 years - have just found out I actually have had Lyme, micro-cocci & crytostrongylus pulmoni all these years

Hi

I have not been dx with lyme or lupus as of yet (appt. with rhumey tomorrow)- ANA positive and I have a lot issues that fit more under lyme than lupus (muscle twitches etc).  I have been dx with fibro. Nevertheless, I have been experiencing eye pain for the past week, dry eyes and floaters too.

Hope: I have ALL of the above along with burning and very bloodshot eyes. I was diagnosed with optic neuritis in 2005. All I can tell you is it is not a herx as I am not taking medication and never have. As far as co-infections, Fry says I have Erlichia and Bart, if you can believe them. (:   D

My daughter has the floaters. And now wears shades all of the time. The photosensitivity is a common thing with lyme. And most likely is worse when you have a headache.
The three of us are like vampires. The sun just hurts.
I use to see black spots moving. Like big rats running across the floor. This has finally stopped. I use to scream and hold my feet up. It really concerned my friends...lol

Dowa....what do you mean that you are not taking any medication????? I know we have spoken many times....but what are you doing for yourself???? remind me...lol
dumb blond here...hey that excuse works for me...:>)
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.

Marie: I do not take antibiotics due to the mold poisoning, remember? I did a 14 month detox at EHC with sauna and IV , then did 40 hyperbaric oxygen chamber sessions. I have never done antibiotics as they are contraindicated in fungal problems. That is the reason I had asked Envita about antibiotics because I was afraid to take them. I have a high tricothecene level which indicates mycotoxicosis (mold poisoning). Antibiotics will make that condition worse. That is the reason I was thinking about seeing Dr. S in Maryland because he works with both, you familiar with his protocal??   D

I have very dry eyes which are normally blood shot and sensitive to light but I take 100mg of hyaluronic acid which helps them - a lot! Bb live in the colagen and HA replaces it. Be sure to buy a good brand that is not just chicken sternum or rooster comb. You should feel a big difference in less than a week.

I have all of these eye symptoms. Dryness, burning, redness, occasional flashers at night, black fuzzy things moving in periphery etc. I also have blurry vision sometimes and if I am to watch tv, I have to sit right in front of it. I wear contact lenses and never used to use lubricating drops until this caused me to have two corneal abrasions. I ran from doc to doc and finally diagnosed myself with Ocular rosacea. I personally think the Lyme and friends caused this; kind of like an autoimmune thing. Refresh celluvisc drops are very soothing when my eyes are very dry, red and burning.

Dowa--I tried making an apt. with Dr. S. in July and they told me he stopped seeing new patients. I tried Dr. C. in his office twice and while I was in the waiting room the last time, a new patient came in for Dr. S. So maybe he is being selective-I don't know.

I got about half way through Mold Warriors and lent it to a friend and never got it back.

Minx: I had not heard that about Dr. S is not taking new patients, wow. You mentioned Dr. C, I dont know who that is, does Dr. S have someone else working with him in the office??

Thanks D

Yes. Dr. C. is renting space in Dr. S's office. If you wanted an apt. with Dr. S, it does not hurt to try. Things may have changed, you never know.

I have seen white swirly dots for 10yrs  I see it more when I look at the sky or a white wall, or outside. This started around the same time I started to get dizzy spells, ice pick headahes and migraines w auras.
 
 For the past months I have had a right sided eye pain--like a pressure that comes and goes.
 
I also see visual snow in the evening, its like what I see is not a clear picture but a tad fuzzy like when a tv screen is not 100% clear.
