Hi Everyone: I have read alot of posts here about weight gain but when I read about Lyme  symptoms apparently your weight can go in either direction. I have recently lost weight  without trying and dont have any to spare, so I was just wondering if many of you here had a problem with losing weight and how the Lyme is responsible for that?? Thanks   D

Hi Dowa - I had a little bit of weight loss but I believe that it was from the lyme sort of indirectly. The first time I lost weight it was because I couldn't keep anything I ate down while on doxy - I lost a little more weight but I think that I really just lost muscle mass from all the bed rest. I think not being as active and losing muscle was a big factor- I used to have a little muscle definition in my arms and now my arms are noticeably thinner but just have no muscle definition.

hi Dowa - i was reading about your question some days ago and thought I should answer; I notice that i lost weight very slowly but constantly during the last 3 years. I have not eaten less, buy the food in our ยด"bio- shop" as long as I can think back and avoid "chemical stuff" where ever possible; I stopped smoking two years ago and thought I may gain weight - but no, I did not; there was not much chance in my work out;
maybe it is not lyme itself, in my case I would rather assume that it is all the stress around it which uses up energy. One of the most boring things with lyme is that I got soooo senitive to "smells" - some really make me feel sick (like getting an asthmatic attack) and cause a kind of tenseness in my body and this is really stressy for me. dorit
