I haven't been diagnosed via lab tests yet but my symptoms (and seven years of ruling everything else out) is pointing towards lyme. I have an appointment with a lyme MD next week. My question to y'all is regarding symptom severity. My joint pain, fatigue, heart palpitations, anxiety, depression, etc have reduced my activity level quite a bit. I'm only able to work about 20 hrs/wk now and social life is next to nil. All of this came on with a malaria-like illness in 2002, but I've never had more severe symptoms such as fainting, seizures, bell's palsy, paralysis, etc.
I'm curious to know how many out there who are "positively diagnosed lyme" never had any of the more severe symptoms?
Thanks for your response!
