Lymeymom -- this could be a long shot, but I'm wondering if you could possibly have become hypoglycemic? It believe it is possible for Lyme to cause this. about 30 yrs ago, when I was diagnosed w/ hypogly, I did a lot of study on it. It is like so many other things -- everyone is affected in different ways.
A single blood test cannot tell you if your blood sugar drops too low, because it depends on what is happening at the time. If you believe you have any of the symptoms, you would need a 5 hr glucose test.
I read a book on this and it showed many differing graphs. Someone like me starts out w/ blood sugar level a little high (cause I drink frappacinno first thing in the am) and then it starts dropping. I don't bottom out til the 4th and 5th hour, and then my liver signals my pancreas (or liver?) and adrenals to send out more sugar/glucose. That is what causes the weakness and shakiness. So far, my liver's been good and I may bottom out, but will recoop, altho it doesn't feel too good.
Some people's graphs show that during the 5 hr glucose test, their blood sugar starts dropping and continues to drop until they faint/pass out.
Some people's blood sugar drops more quickly than others, and some (like me) have so far (knock on wood) have never bottomed out, meaning, I have been weak and shakey, but my body seems to buck it back up.
Lymeymom, you might want to look up hypogylcemia and see if those symptoms seem to fit/ come together. Because it can tag along w/ Lyme.
Hypoglycemia can also cause irritibility to rage, along w/ passing out, fainting, etc.

What don't these nasty bugs cause?
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.
