Hi to everyone I am cha cha, I have been reading all your posts trying to find out
about Lyme disease. three months ago my mom had a shock like feeling from her neck
Down her arms and then her legs within 1 hour she had lost all her strength.
Paramedics took her to hospital 3 hours later she was paralyzed from the neck down.
The next day she started getting some feeling back, then it happened again the shock from her neck shoulders down the arms and legs
Then the paralysis. two weeks later she is walking with a stick .she had 2 MRI scans, 2 CT scans,
2 lumber punctures and lots of blood tests. one test was borderline positive for Lyme. They
Done another blood test and it was positive for Lyme. Next she had three weeks antibiotics
Everyday, now she has lumps of numbness all over her body and a very tight band feeling round
her trunk,ankles,legs, and when she sits down its like sitting on stones.
The worse thing is the tight feeling round her trunk as it gets so tight she finds it hard to breath.
Her medication is baclofen, diazepam. Can anyone relate to this ? Please help me understand what is happening to my mom much appreciated Cha Cha
This sure may be Lyme, you wont find out till you treat it, 3 weeks of antibiotics are very little, the ones of us that had heart problem involvement can relate to this, you can try to post another with title, feeling tightness around heart and you should get more responses, please do her a favor and find her a Lyme Doctor, and infectious disease doctor is not good enough, Lyme Doctors will give her mega doses of antibiotics and she will get better
What plan did the hospital discharge her with?
