I starteed to fell faint last week.just turning my head  would couse this its awefull. i whent to my PCP and told him about it.also i almost padded  out just sitting at the pc reading the letters here. when i finialy was able to get up without the feir of falling  i whent to the bathroom to  place a ice cold rag on my face and i was white as a gost, no color  to my face at all.
my Dr. placed me on Meclizine 25mg 1/2 to hole pill 3x daily, i've  been on it for 3 days now and so far the dizzyness  isnt bothering me. iso hope its gone for good.
1 of my biggest feirs is of falling and doing more damage to myself mainly my knee. as it is my blance as been off for over a yr now.
I hope this goes away for you soon. wishing you the best.

Well lyme can cause adverse vestibular (this is the balence center of your nervous system) effects. Antibiotics can cause this as well. Is meclizine a dizzy med?
In the begining there was no Lyme. And the line is faded not showing where it came in. I became a new Mother and my Lyme decided to show itself. They said my blood tests were normal nothing was wrong. My swollen elephant like knee and finger and the unbelieveable back pain was just low vitamin D. I had a butterfly rash years before. When I told the rheumatologist I had the butterfly rash he said a key sentence. A butterfly rash is only present in lupus or Lyme disease. Well lupus pain is not in the back. i finally realized all the warning signs I had before. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. Now I pressed on. To a Lyme doc, after a nice run around and a lot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recomendation to counceling, He said Veronica this is Lyme and I am going to treat you. Now he knows and I know, Lets get it on paper. Getting the Flow Cytometry test. What kept me pressing on in the face of such amazing and eye opening adversidy is the baby! I had Lyme while I was pregnant Luckily I know I was not infected while pregnant. She is 19 months now and healthy. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica.
P.S We are the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad. Backwards . Alice in wonderland.
