I'm so sorry to hear about your not being able to work any longer. As for me, I could no longer work at the ripe old age of 28.
!st I want ed to say that Lyme rashes are a strange creature. They can come in different shapes & severity. I never have had the 'typical' LD rash, although I have had plenty of rashes of 'unknown origin', and baffled several dermatologists. After all of these years.
If anyone has questions about a rash they are experiencing, there are several good places to see pics of Lyme related rashes. A lot of LLMD's sites have good pics. We had links to pics as well, then we lost our Newbies thread, which is where they were. I haven't checked yet to see if they have gotten put back up or not, though.
I have had the pleasure of experiencing that 'electrical zing' as well - have had that most of my life. It travels around my body with great efficiency!! This is fairly common with TBI's, at least the migrating part of it.
When I was a Junior in h.s., I had such knee pain for quite a while, that first i was put inot a leg brace & then when that didn't help much, my gp (who was a D.O.), scheduled surgery. Of course there was test after test first - but there was nothing found.
He was concerned that I could have torn some ligaments length-wise, so I had knee surgery. After-wards, He just couldn't get over the fact that I had the healthiest knee he had ever opened up!! We had no clue it was a TBI, but looking back it fits right in there with them!
Please be sure to post your results from Igenex when you get them. If you do use the search option, you can quickly locate a few posts to help you understand the results. Of course, if you have more questions - ask away!!! Someone should be able to help you understand!!
As far as listening - well, I believe that sometimes listening is the most important thing a person can do!!
Have you found an LLMD??
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
