I've had this off and on for a long time. I just attributed it to sleep loss (I have a loooong history of insomnia, and it has been really bad this year), but maybe it is the Lyme too... For me, it is twice as bad since I got prescript
ion glasses because I see reflections in the lenses that can make me jump out of my skin when it is just a reflection of a piece of hair or something, LOL. I find wearing a visor hat very helpful for cutting down some on the sensitivity to light and some of these other sensitivities.
One thing that I have a really hard time with is getting a haircut. When the stylist is cutting hair near my right ear, I get a strong pain from my ear down my neck, side, and all the way down my right leg to my toes. Makes me want to cringe and jump out of the chair...it takes every ounce of mental will to stay still so the stylist doesn't chop my ear off or something, LOL.
I figure the nerves are really upset by this whole spirochete/coinfection thing...
