MarriedtoLYMEINNJ--I posted a long reply to your post which got wiped out. Anyway long story short: My symptoms very similar to yours 2 years ago. In addition to others I tested positive for babesia and Hashimotos thyroiditis where the body attacks it's own thyroid. I have been in treatment for 2 years now but it only took a few weeks for those symptoms of being hot and cold at the same time to go away. Can't tell which treatment worked for what was though because I began them at the same time.
I had the sweat that smelled sweetish (is that a word?). I also had the sweat that smelled just different- thought it was the meds. My new problem is that after being treated for 2 years for lyme, thyroid and babesia and not having sweats for 2 years I now get sweats and heat waves throughout the day and night. This has occured since beginning minocycline and bart treatment 5 months ago. I had the thyroid levels tested again and all is ok with those meds. Had more blood work to rule out cancer etc. My gyn says it is not hormonal but what does she know about lyme- I am 3 years out of menapause. My LLMD thinks it is a herx. I refuse to do the doctor to doctor to seek an answer routine again. So I will wait it out for now. I am now beginning a moderate cowden protocal along with mino and rifampin
This ia all such a mystery but do not rely on tests for babesia! Also Ticker can tell you exactly what tests to get for your thyoid to get an accurate picture of what's going on. Blessings
