In the meantime I am convinced I had an em coming an going....in my face similar to one of the fotos around the cormer of my mouth, wandering up my cheek, dissapear, come again - for about 2 years; I always thought this was allergy related b/c it was not that red;
your comment on the Lyme disease is extremely important for me and I wanted to ask you some clarification.
I see you live In Germany, me too.
I used to study in Connecticut in USA some years ago. I used to hike and run there quite often and I think I got bitten one day.
I did not notice it but then I had a red spot not too big and a large circle around. At that time I had no clue it could be a tick. I thought it was a mosquito and did not pay attention. I am very often in nature.
It's a couple of years later by accident that I heard from Lyme disease.
- I have had issues with memory which I think are increasing and sometimes I feel I don't put words or sentences in the correct order but when I tell my friends they tell me it's due to stress. I don't remember anything I read or often what people tell me and despite I am quite stressed in my job I used to not be like this.
- my knee and hip joint have started hurting without known reasons and I am now wondering if it's not arthritis.
- the most important is that for a year I often have my face swollened around my eye or lip or knees, elbow, shoulders It can move within a few hours but it's more often on face. I took many pictures and should go to a rheumatologist I imagine. For now I've cortidone and antiisthamine to suppress effects when it happens.
I have never had any allergies. You mentioned something like that in the forum and wanted to ask you if it is a big symptom of Lyme disease?
- i have periods where I feel very tired and need a nap everyday in addition to normal sleep and still feel tired. But this is not all year long. It's by periods.
- mood swings etc.
I apologize for writing you all this but reading about
your swollening face may help me find an origin. Also Is this bite and circle a certain sign of being infected with Lyme disease?
If you have any information on this and whether you could get tested in Germany, I would really appreciate!! I am feeling a bit hopeless.
