You all responding so well to my cry for help has truly touched me!!! I kind of forgot just how good it feels, as this is something very few sites can offer!!!
*******Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!***********
thank you so much for that info!!! I will see if my doc knows how to test for Bart, as he is only a Lyme-friendly doc, although he is a very understanding doc too. Unfortunately that's the best I can get here in my area.
Although I'm not sure if I could have contracted Bart, as I have only been as far east as Michigan & Georgia. I live in the upper south/lower midwest. But(!!!),
anything is possible with a Lymie!!!
Thank you so much for your concern! I have reached the point where should I pass out again - even for a minute- I am calling out to hubby & will make him help me back to the bed!!
I am not
taking any more risks!! When I make my nightly trip to the potty, I now am very
aware of my situation & surroundings!!!
You may be very right in wondering about
my electrolytes. I have become very heat sensitive the last few years (
), although it was early spring and late fall when these occurred.
I normally drink 4 - 5 quarts of some kind of fluids, except for summertime where I increase that amount by almost double. I know that the amount of fluid drank doesn't mean I am getting enough electrolytes though.
My doc told me on my last visit (about
1 month ago) told me I was low on sodium - of all things!) and told me to increase my salt intake. I use good sea salt.
Sorry all I forgot to mention that before!!!
Is it possible that low sodium could cause that as well? At any rate - thank you. I will ask my doc to test my potassium levels as well.
I will talk with my doc about
the autonomic nerve thingy. My heart is supposedly very healthy & strong - should I ask more in-depth questions about
my heart? What kind of things should be watched for?
Once again - you all have me thoroughly warmed inside, knowing I have such wonderful & great people to help me get through this!!!!
