Who knows, figured I would see if this sounds like Lyme.
Me, 25 male.
Live in Southwestern PA
Start of problems 2 years ago:
Worked in the woods - outdoors and manholes (sewer lines)
Never had a health problem in my life.
One day, became very sleepy, sick, turned into a bad fever, and had swollen lymph nodes in groin.
Was given some antibiotics, kind of helped. However, for several months, I had swollen lymph nodes in my groin, on and off. They hurt when they became swollen.
Also, general sickness for months, and months after that, docs couldn’t find anything wrong.
Lymph nodes finally disappeared. Then about 3 months after that, I developed a numbness on the left side of my face. Had been numb since. I have had two $7000.00 high resolution, think sliced MRI's, that were perfectly clean, so no tumors or anything. So, again, no answer to numbness. I also had a period where my left wrist went numb too, but luckily that went away.
I do get strange sensations- tingling in my body sometimes.
1 year after the facial numbness, I developed a breathing problem out of nowhere. It’s just uncomfortable at times to breathe. (60 perfect of the time), it’s not wheezing, or hypervenaltion, just hard to breathe, like pressure and stuff.
I have had all heart tests, which have been perfect... I have had a pulmonary function test, which came out good, lung x-ray, CT scan, w w-o contrast, all look good.
Again, no answers.
Anyone else have these symptoms?
I don’t ever remember being bitten by a tick, but I don’t think I would know if I did. I worked outdoors all day long, and in sewers before this happened.
Does this sound like LYME?
If so, how do I get tested, and how much does it cost?
