Just wondering if anyone has experienced a sudden on-set of GI related issues and later determined that it was Lyme related ?
Starting a couple years ago I started experiencing what I believe is GERD related anxiety (from silent reflux), followed by more classic heartburn symptoms a few months to a year later. It's been a fairly steady progression of symptoms with the most obvious "marker" being the sudden on-set. Up to this point I had never had problems with anything I ate and had never even experienced an actual episode of heartburn.
The "anxiety" type symptoms have been pretty closely coupled with any number of symptoms that could be attributed to Lyme - the more I read the more convinced I've become that all of this mess I've experienced over the last couple years can be traced back to the common origin of Lyme. I've certainly had my share of tick bites (probably at least 10 over the last 10-12 years) and have even had a couple initial courses of antibiotics after a couple of the bites.
The GI issues have me puzzled as to why they just suddenly appeared - so I'm wondering if this might be a common presentation of Lyme in others ?
Thanks for any info you can provide
