I know not many peopl come back here after they get better,but does anyone have an experience where thire chemical sensitivity gets better as the lyme does? I get so sick with any kind of perfume or gas ,oil,air freshners ect... and I was told by one doc it was yeast problem.I just dont know who to believe about what!!!!! Its terrible to go in circles with each doc trying to figure out who to believe the most! Any experiences?

Lyme can do this just as much as yeast can. I test negative for yeast, but have a hypersensitive nose.

Hi sickoflyme,

I agree that both lyme and yeast infections can lead to multiple chemical sensitivities. And yes, if the infections are the cause, then it can improve with treatment. But, underlying the MCS and infections can be heavy metal toxicity. To get rid of the MCS, one would need to detox out the metals----which is it's own nightmare. I think even being toxic from certain "chemical exposures" can lead to more MCS. I think there may be other reasons that cause MCS and immune dysfunction. My daughter and I suffer from sensitivities and they seem to change (both better and worse) as our treatments change or if we are exposed to bad stuff. The same thing happens to our friends. Another friend had terrible MCS but it became much better as she healed using Many different alternative healing methods.

Best wishes to you, bablymers mom

I have had hyper sensitvity in smelling since being dx'ed with LD,,,, I also cannot stand bright lights.... or too much stuff going on at once like, the dishwasher and the TV and my husband trying to talk to me.... I refer to all of these symptoms as "too much sensory input".

I have that problem too. I cannot take in what my husband is saying if there is too much mouse around me. I get really frustrated because it seems to be getting worse. My smell sensitivities are horrible right now too.
