I have suffered for 3 years with terrible anxiety, jaw tightness, facial tingling, phantom tooth pain, flank pain, headaches, aching joints, neck/shoulder stiffness, heart palpitations, extreme fatigue, alcohol intolerance, exercise intolerance and lump on side of neck that everyone says is lymph gland but "nothing to worry about
". It goes on and one and have been the craziest years of my life. All started with infection in my mouth leading to teeth being pulled and full year of dental work. Gyno says early menopause cause periods stopped abruptly and no estrogen so started on HRT. First endo said not thyroid cause numbers were fine even though I had grave's disease 10 years ago. New endo says mild hashimoto's but believes probably something else going on and going to test for lyme's and fibromyalgia. Have days when I can barely lift arms, then that will leave and legs will be dragging and now sharp pains moving from joint to joint.
Just wondering if anyone has had similiar experience and could this be lyme's after all this time without getting sicker and sicker - not so much as a cold. It's more like flareups although the anxiety is the worst and has only now subsided some with xanax. I am just so tired of trying to figure it out. Tests have revealed large kidney cyst (told they are common), high normetanephrines but no pheo, high thyroid antibodies,
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated and HOW DO I GET TESTED FOR LYME'S without simply walking into the lab I use cause they seem to screw up every test I go for? Thanks a lot.
