I realize now that I made a mistake not checking to see if this guy was LL or not, but I went to Neuro today for this numbness thing that happens periodically. Every time I get emotionally upset I get this wave of numbness that radiates around the left side of my head and face down to my torso. Aside from that the left side of my face feels like there are places on it that are numb.
Anyway, I went to the neruo and told him about the 20 year diagnosis of Lupus and Fibro, I didn't mention Lyme. He did some office tests and the most remarkable one was when he started tapping me with a pin, on the entire left side of my body it felt like he was touching me with a finger instead of a pin. He wants an MRI with contrast of my head and neck, he says that the only thing that could be causing this is something going awry with the right side of my brain. Apparently as we age, we get something in the brain that he called some kind of spots, I don't remember exactly what he said those were called. It is normal to have 10-20 at my age. He wants to see how many I have and see if there is anything else going on there He said that when the test comes back it will list a bunch of things that cold be the cause of what is making this happen and one of the things he mentioned was Lyme.
I was too afraid to say anything about the Lyme. He was already kind of pushy when I told him I didn't see a Rheumy for the Lupus, and that my primary doc sees me for that.
Give me feedback, please, I want to hear what someone else thinks about it and if you would mention the Lyme or not.
