As I was looking through my kids' lists this year - I had told them make sure you put the most important things at the top 5 so Santa and the family knows what you want the most. The thought occurred to me if I could choose my five top symptoms to get rid of what would they be - not easy since there are so many - but here is what I choose:

1. Brain Fog/Dizziness
3. Intestinal issues (I developed lymphocytic colitis and now IBS - was told from large doses of antibiotic use probably)
4. Migraines/headaches/stiff neck (these all seem to go to together - so I can lump in one right LOL)
5. dental pain/jaw pain/problems at dentist (not numbing, feeling too much, sensitive teeth, anxiety)

What's on your list?!?

My #1-#5 would all be to not have the dizziness anymore.

1. To know that none of my loved ones will possibly be infected with this horrible disease.

2. To be treated by Burrascano.

3. To be able to give billions to Lyme research.

4. To put all of the Lyme denying idiot doctors and specialists in my body at the point after I saw the rash and was supposedly treated.

5. To be able to enjoy the holidays again. I just can't get into the season with my ears ringing, floaters, and pain.

2.  I want my brain back.  All neuro symptoms gone so I can attend college like a normal 18yr. old.

3.  No more muscle cramps/spasms, esp. charlie-horses.

4.  Intestinal issues/Digestive issues fixed.

5.  Some of my family members and old, school "friends" would finally see I'm not lying about having this disease and that it's more than just "flu-like" symptoms.  How could I have been "faking" a disease for the past 3 1/2 years?

leah, cute post.

My list of five symptoms to get rid of would be:

# 1: The extra 30 + lbs that came from being sedentary for so many years.
# 2: The pain in my feet gone so I could wear sexy shoes and not the same make and model as my grandmother (SAS).
# 3: Restless leg syndrome
# 4: The brain fog
# 5: Last but certainly not least: FATIGUE
