I'm interested to hear if others that suffer with lymes disease think I may have it. I am a 28 year old female who was healthy until about a month and a half ago. Here are the problems I've been having:
headaches - feels like pressure in my head and sometimes stinging or burning feeling
shortness of breath and chest pain (have been 2 ER twice b/c I thought I was having a heart attack - checked out fine both times)
flashing lights in vision
eyes "playing tricks" on me. i see moving spots in my peripheral vision (looks like a bug moving across the floor)
tingling in my arms, legs and sometimes back and face
stiff/sore neck and back
occasional muscle twitches
upset stomach (sometimes wakes me up and night, usually very sweaty)
I do not have all these symptoms all the time but I do always have something going on. My latest diagnosis is migraines, but I truly do not think that is what it is. My doctor also gave me antibiotics b/c she thought I may have a sinus infection. The time I was on antibiotics is the only time I've felt any better.
I was tested for lymes over the summer b/c I was having carpal tunnel like wrist and elbow pain. The test came back negative. I do not know what type of test it was.
Also - my father (who lived next door to me until 6 months ago) and my dog have both tested positive for lymes in the past few years. Until 6 months ago I lived in the woods and I also have horses.
I do not recall a bite or a rash.
I am fed up with not feeling well. I am getting married in May and just want to be able to concentrate on wedding plans!!
Any insight you could provide would be greatly appreciated!!!
